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 Kolping Centre located on Magadi Road, Nairobi. The map below shows the location. Limited parking is available at the Kolping Centre, and we recommend that students share transportation or arranged to be dropped off and picked up if possible. Please note that once the course begins students are not permitted access to their cars, as they are parked outside the course boundary.
From CBD board matatu 125 from the Railway Station. The matatu will take Langata Road, then on to Magadi Road. When on Magadi Road tell the conductor you would like to alight at the Total Petrol Station. Continue down the road from the petrol station. You will see a signboard for Kolping Centre on your right about 30-50 m after the petrol station. Follow the road until you reach the centre.
Taxis are readily available from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and at the time of writing taxi fares typically cost between 2500 – 3500 Kenya Shillings from JKIA to the Kolping Centre. Although slightly more expensive it is advisable to organise a taxi from one of the companies with a stand at arrivals as fares are standardised. Tell the driver that you would like to go to the Kolping Centre on Madagi Road, and give them the directions above.
