Kenya's boda-boda taxis

These colourful Kenyan bicycle taxis called boda-boda, sure inspire you to jump on your bike and get peddling!

Part of East African culture, boda-boda taxis are an economical form of transportation that started back in the 1960s and 70s as a means of transporting people across no-man's land at the Kenyan / Ugandan border without vehicle paperwork. The bicycle owners would shout out boda-boda [border-to-border] to potential customers.Safari Journal / Blog by Safari Fusion | Kenya's boda-boda taxis | Traditional and colourful bike transportation in East Africa
