Dar Express or...... ?

Best (as in safest for a single female traveller) way to get from Dar to Nairobi. Price is not an issue and I would prefer to go overland.

Suggestions and experiences appreciated.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but why would you want to go overland rather than fly?

Thats a gross and long bus ride. Maybe fly dar-kia, then take a shuttle to Nairobi. Much safer and more comfortable.

I would agree that this should be a flight, it is a long ways. But if you are going overland, Dar Express would be good.

I also recommend Dar express.

But its better to take a flight its long distance or you can fly to JRO then take a shuttle as adviced by Mwamba.

Because I want to see as much of the terrain as possible.
