Great news for Kenya travelers, vacationers and safari-goers – there’s a high-speed rail line linking the capital of Nairobi to Mombasa on the sunny Kenya Coast. It’s called the Madaraka Express, and like modern express trains everywhere, it’s fast, safe, comfortable and convenient.
“Madaraka”… it means freedom in Swahili. And the new Madaraka Express will bring you the freedom of a speedy and relaxed travel experience.
The Express passes through two of Kenya’s venerable wildlife parks – Tsavo West and Tsavo East. These are long-established parks with great stretches of golden savannah and dusty plain populated with a multitude of wildlife.
Adding to the viewing experience, the train’s pathway is elevated higher than the comparable highway giving riders a greater vantage point to the horizon. And the train’s large windows allow you to enjoy a bigger vista of those hills, lakes, plains and possibly wildlife.
These new air-conditioned trains are managed by Kenya Railways with an emphasis on safety, security and comfort. The seats are wide and cushy with handy nearby charging stations.
Should you get hungry or just want to stretch your legs you can retreat to the buffet car and relax there with a snack or sandwiches. The facilities are spotless as are the clean restrooms.
And don’t worry about your luggage – there are dedicated areas for all your bags, large or small. Your luggage is secure.
Everything about the train is modern and on time. Traveling at an average speed of 120 km/h (75 mph), the Express makes the full trip from capital to coast in about 6 hours. Compare that to the 15 or more hours the previous colonial-era train took to make the same journey.
The Madaraka Express is a fun, relaxing way to complete your Natural World Kenya Safaris journey from Nairobi to Kenya Coast beach safaris, – a smooth transition from the adventure of safari to an easy holiday at a coastal resort.
