The new trains are coming through Voi

Whenever we’ve visited Kenya in the past, getting from Nairobi to Voi, or indeed from Mombassa to Voi has always been a challenge by car along the main Nairobi – Mombassa Highway. However as I mentioned in a post over 18 months ago, click HERE for details, a new railway was to be built between the cities.

We saw first hand the construction when we visited in March of 2016.

President Uhuru Kenyatta officially launched the new link a few months ago by taking a maiden trip from Mombasa to Nairobi, addressing the public at selected stations along the way, including the one in Voi.

How things change! The new railway is expected to transform the economy and landscape of Kenya, including Voi and surrounding areas such as Mwakoma where the Kileva Eastfield School is located. However it also means that future Kileva UK Teams will be able to avoid the perils of the infamous road journey from Nairobi to Voi!

    That’s very good news. I was scared witless on that journey by car. Next time it will be the train for me. Jos Sewell
