I've done the Nairobi/Mombasa bus on a few occasions. Can't say it's a fun trip and I much prefer driving in my own car, but if you're up for adventure I recommend doing it once. You certainly see a different side of Kenya! I'm a single female and on buses/public transport, I've always traveled alone and I've never ever had an issue. I do recommend that you sit on the same side as the luggage hold so you can keep an eye for your bag being taken out at stops.

I took the train from Mombassa to Nairobi alone in 1992 as a SWF age 48 and loved every minute of it. Don't remember roaches, just feeling transported back in time. Probably would not do it today, with age comes wisdom. However, I would recommend the experience to all.
