Where else riding a matatu is a default way of commuting for Kenyan, it can be a pretty immersive & unusual experience for a visitor. Colorful, vibrant, loud music seems to be a signature style, especially at night. A matatu ride is a must-do in Nairobi! Travel light, no jewelry, and very little cash. While at it, take a trip in the heart of Nairobi’s CBD, and travel around the downtown area and check out the curio shops.
