You can go from Nairobi to Arusha for $25 one way, I have done it loads of times. If you google (bus shuttles Nairobi to Arusha) you will see loads of companies.

I have been with Riverside, East Africa Shuttles, Luxury Shuttles.

I would not go by the pictures of the buses on the internet! The buses I have been on were all the same standard. I would try and make sure you get the proper seats not the seat that fold down in the aisle as they are a little uncomfortable.

they normally have a little box or tin by the door when you leave.

I would make sure you have a pen ready for the border so you can fill in the forms for your visa and make sure you have new $ for the payment.

It's $30 now but great fun.

Avoid sitting over the axles. Watch out for wildlife as you cross Amboseli.
