bus from Kisumu Kenya

We will be in Kisumu Kenya mid Feb and wish to take a bus to Kampala. Does anyone know a bus company that does this trip? Where does the bus end up in Kampala as we need to find a hotel.

Please advise.

thanks

I do not recommend the matatu option as getting a bus from Busia to Kampala can be a hassle. You would have to carry your things to the Busia taxi park which is not so close to the border and then locate a Kampala matatu and wait for a matatu to fill. There are also few places to eat in Busia, so you could be hungry at this time.

Thanks for all the advice. We are now back from our amazing trip. We ended up with a driver who we hired to drive us to Kampala from the village we are were staying. Reading your advice would have seemed a bit sketching but I could see how this could be done now that we have experienced it.

We were pleased how we did it as our driver stopped in Jinja so we could see the source of the Nile. He then was able to take us to the guest house we were staying at.

thanks for all the advice.
