1000 Kilometres to Mombasa
It’s 1000 kilometres from Jinja (Uganda) to Mombasa (Kenya), the longest bus ride (22 hours) of our trip to date. Luckily we make the journey with Modern Coast Express bus company, whose lowest class of seats is labelled “Business Class” (otherwise, we would have surely been in Economy!). After a long ride through the night and rain, we find ourselves back on the east African coast.
We find Mombasa to be a mix of cultures, old and new. From the old Swahili town of Mombasa Island with its carved wooden doors and narrow alleys, to the shopping malls of Nyali with their cappuccinos and wifi. You can find everything in Mombasa.
