I am a 24 year old British female based in Arusha and want to go to Jinja in Uganda. Lots of old threads recommend Akamba buses which seem to have stopped. Flying is just too expensive.
There are two main companies I've spoken to here in Arusha, Kampala and Spider coaches. Both seem to leave Arusha in the afternoon and have an overnight stop in Nairobi. It appears they get to Nairobi around 9pm and stop, leaving again at 5am.
Has anyone does this trip before? I'm concerned about what happens over night. Do you stay on the bus? Do they change buses and leave you to fend for yourself?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
