If you are looking for a ride or would like to offer one, you can make use of our rideshare-board, which is maintained solely for the purpose of facilitating rides to Vipassana courses.
Courses are currently held at the Ukombozi Retreat and Conference Centre located in Komo area, off the Thika Superhighway - Exit 16. The map below shows the location. We recommend that students share transportation or arrange to be dropped off and picked up if possible. Please note that once the course begins students are not permitted access to their cars.
The centre is located in Komo area, off the Thika Superhighway in Kiambu County. From Nairobi CBD there are three options for public transport:
All options will get onto Thika Superhighway. Ask the conductor to drop you off at Witeithie stage. From this point you can take a motorbike taxi (bodaboda) to the centre which will cost about KSH 200.
If driving, take Exit 16 and drive up to Witeithie stage and then please follow the map above. There will be sign boards for Ukombozi Retreat and Conference Centre along the way.
Taxis are readily available from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. At the time of writing Uber taxi fares typically cost between KSH 1600 – 2800 from JKIA to Ukombozi Retreat and Conference Centre. Although slightly more expensive, it is advisable to organise a taxi from one of the taxi companies at arrivals, as their fares are standardised. Tell the driver that you would like to go to Ukombozi Retreat and Conference Centre on Thika Superhighway, and give them the directions above.
