Getting There in Nakuru

Edit This
There are several matatu stages to Nakuru in Nairobi. They are all located back near River Road. Ask someone for directions. If you’re traveling from Nairobi west past Nakuru, you may need to break the trip up by first going to Nakuru, then getting another vehicle to your final destination.

There’s only one major bus and matatu stage in Nakuru. It’s in the Eastern end of town, off of Mburu Gichua Rd. The stage is a nest of chaos, but you will attract several touts that will gladly drag you to the vehicle you want. From the Nakuru stage you can get vehicles to Nairobi, Naivasha, Nyahururu, Nyeri, Eldoret, Kericho Kisii, Kisumu, and many other towns and cities.

The newly introduced "Prestige Shuttle" on the Nakuru-Nairobi Molo line is an excellent choice. For only 50 KSh more, this matutu shuttle offers more (and comfortable) seating space, good shock absorbers, and curtains to shield from the sun. If you travel in matatu, this definitely is the way to go (besides, Mololine have a good reputation in terms of road safety).

Railway connections to Nairobi and to Kisumu exist several times a week. They are not very practical, because the stops in Nakuru are at deep night / very early morning. But it is a theoretical alternative.
