Buses with enough and wide legroom, seats which can tilt back and forth and are very comfortable when sleeping for a long time. Charging ports, refreshments, wifi connection, enough safety measures and air conditioners are the type of perfect buses for long-distance travels.
A journey from Nairobi to Kampala takes approximately 11-14 hours and that’s quite a long time to be on the road, thus, it requires luxury and comfortability to avoid extreme exhaustion.
