We have all travelled from one place to another, many have travelled from upcountry to either Nairobi or to other towns within the country.
Personally, I like it when I travel in air-conditioned vehicles, comfortable seats, large leg space, refreshments along the way just to name a few.
Travelling for long distances is tiresome hence it needs the most comfortable travelling medium to at least not get over exhausted.
Back then, you could travel in a packed bus with hard seats, poor ventilation, you could sit and under your seat are hens, imagine the smell, the buses used to stroll at almost 50Km/h and at 70Km/h when at their best on a steep descent. Travelling was one hell of a ride but with time, many travelling companies have come up with better and comfortable means of transport and we decided to list for you the most comfortable long-distance bus companies in Kenya which you should consider once travelling.
