If your talking about from mombasa then yes there are plenty coaches. Matatus i dont know but would anyone really want to go from mombasa to nairobi in a matatu? be very hard on the body.

Mombasa to Nairobi and vice-versa by coach is around £10-15 depending which company you use. Takes around 8 hours if memory serves me.

Flying with Kenya airlines, fly540, airkenya is alot easier, more comfy and alot safer though. Only use the road if your on a budget is my advice.

By "coach" do you mean"bus"? You won't find the comfort of a UK long distance bus, but smaller vehicles - like Easy Coach are all right. It depends on where you want to travel from.

Mash bus company has daily schedules from Malindi to Nairobi. Their coaches are Ok. Other major companies mainly operate from Mombasa to Nairobi.

How long does it take? Can you book in advance? What is security like?

Mostly overnight. I think they have day coaches as well from Malindi. Definite from Mombasa. Yes they can be booked in advance and its safe enough - They make scheduled stops in Mombasa and Mtito Andei where you can have some refreshments and stretch your legs.
