Africa’s Epic Train Ride from Nairobi to Mombasa: G Adventures

Africa’s Epic Train Ride from Nairobi to Mombasa: G Adventures — April 2016.

Find out what a night on board one of the most epic train rides in Africa is like with travel writer Shelley Seale.

You wake up to the feel of the gently rocking train beneath you. With the early dawn light seeping in through the windows, you take a peek outside to see the African savannah as the train makes its way toward the Kenyan coast. A herd of antelope runs by; perhaps you also see ostrich or zebra. If you’re really lucky, you might spot giraffe or a lion. Children rush out from villages along the railway to wave at the train as it passes.

This is the overnight train from Nairobi to Mombasa, Kenya — one of the most epic train journeys in Africa, or, for that matter, anywhere in the world. It’s quite a unique experience; and while you can fly between the two cities in an hour and a half, if you have the time for the 15-hour overland rail journey, the payoff in fun and adventure is well worth it.
