Uber cities in Kenya: from Nairobi to Mombasa

March 4 / Kenya

We’ve been busy in Kenya—have you noticed? Since 2015, we’ve been helping riders get to where they want to be at all hours of the day all year round. But where exactly have they been going? Check out our guide to the Uber cities in Kenya: the cities where you can find Uber availability and some of the places you might want to explore with us there.

Uber in Kenya

Nairobi

In the rush to get to the coast or the big game parks, Kenya’s capital can often be overlooked. Yet Nairobi, East Africa’s most cosmopolitan city, is an exciting place to be in its own right and one of the finest Uber cities in the region.

If you’re looking for things to do, the National Museum is definitely one to check out in Nairobi. Covering Kenyan culture, nature, history and contemporary art, the museum also contains its own auditorium and botanical gardens. If you loved Out of Africa, you’ll want to see Karen Blixen’s House and Museum, based in the farmhouse where the writer lived from 1914 to 1931.

However, nothing beats a day out at Nairobi National Park. Whilst it is on the small side compared to most national parks, it’s closeness to Nairobi—only a 7km ride south of the city center—makes it perfect for a natural retreat from the city.

We can also help if you want to get out of town altogether. You can get an easy airport transfer from your front door to either Wilson Airport or Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by requesting a ride with us.

Mombasa

Onto East Africa’s biggest port: Mombasa, is another thriving Kenyan city and the country’s second Uber city. With its blend of Arabian, African and Indian influences, Mombasa is an exciting place to live, work and visit—and Uber availability makes it easier to do all these things.

Of course, as a port city, the first thing to enjoy in Mombasa is the sea itself. For a day at the beach, you can ride round to Nyali Beach on the north east side of the city or hop on the Likoni Ferry across to Shelly Beach to the south. Or you can look out across Mombasa Harbour and the ocean beyond from the historic Fort Jesus, a 16th century UNESCO World Heritage site.

For a bit more excitement, you could also check out the Spice Market to the west of the Old Town. A riot of colors, scents and sounds, with endless stalls of pepper, turmeric and more, it’s perfect for a lunchtime stroll, as you can pick up some superb street food along the way.
