traveling from nairobi to johannesburg

by haribaldev Online Now Jun 20, 2008 at 1:28 PM

Is there a bus or train that goes from Nairobi to johannesburg. I would love to travel with the locals and see the real country. I am going to be traveling in november. I am also looking for a place to do some volunteer work while I am there. I am a backpacker so I cannot afford to pay to volunteer. Appreciate any assistance that you can give. Thank you

    Hello,
    it is possible to travel by bus or train,by bus from Nairobi to Dar es salaam,then exchange to Lusaka ,from there a direct bus to South Africa.
    By train,you will have to travel by bus to Dar es salaam,Then board train(TAZARA)to Lusaka(Zambia) and change another train though takes longer time.About volunteering,can arrange on arrival on any country.Thanx

    Bear in mind that to do volunteer work in Kenya you need a work permit (even for unpaid work). Some people do work without one but risk deportation. List of visas are on the Kenya High Commission website + fees of course!
