Boda Boda

fastest, but sometimes risky, transportation within the big cities and countryside

Location: 

Diamond Plaza, Nairobi, Kenya

Duration:

Personal highlights

  1. Boda Boda: motorcycles, by far the fastest means of transportation in the city
  2. Driver: despite their bad reputation, nearly all of them are friendly and helpful
  3. Police: 15 minutes of arguing about jail and the law (over a missing helmet)
  4. Speed: driving up to 90 kmh on the highway (with a working speedometer!)
  5. Bumps: I personally prefer a Boda Boda on the Kenyainfo-icon's bumpy roads
