Breathtaking Moments During Voi – Nairobi Drive

Mombasa - Nairobi Highway Mombasa - Nairobi Highway

The sendoff at Voi is a crashed car displayed to give the message, “Drive safely.” The sceneries as the drive unfolds in the first 50 kilometers show the natural beauty of Kenya. The small towns next to the Mombasa-Nairobi highway tell of the vast development opportunity. If one has driven through any U.S highway they will understand this opportunity.

After 130 km drive one has passed Mtitu Andei and arrives at Kibwenzi Town. The sellers of fruits and water welcome you to the town. With no stopovers and restrooms built, the refreshment are the fruits sold by the sellers who sometimes are at the center of the road.

As two trucks pass each other, with sellers standing on the middle of the road; the thought that they could be hit creates goosebumps. The sellers do not appear to have any conscious of the risk two moving trucks can cause to their bodies. The sale has to be made. 

The towns: Simba, Makindu, Emali, Sultan Hammud and others follow with similar stories. With infusion of capital the Towns could find their identity as they service the travelers along the highway.  

As one gets closer to Nairobi about 60 km from Nairobi, Konza City land appears in a flat terrain and a picturesque scenery. This is one of the most beautiful sceneries one sees during the Voi – Nairobi drive. Once the ongoing Konza City plan that started around 2006 or 2007 becomes a developed planned city; the city that emerges will be one of the best stopovers along Mombasa – Nairobi road.

Kenya is a country of wildlife; two Zebras crossing the Nairobi – Mombasa road remind one. At first one is scared as it appears the Zebras will be hit. However, they cross the road safely to the relief of those driving. 

Athi River and Mlolongo with industries lined up welcome one to Nairobi as the 330 Kilometers comes to an end. The jams and dust welcome one to the Nairobi City.
