Individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation in Kenya very different from what you find in the United States. Although Kenyan law prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities, the government has not effectively enforced these provisions and implementation has been slow. Very few government or private buildings, medical facilities, restaurants or other public or private facilities have adequate access for the disabled. Travelers to Kenya will find very little accessibility to public transportation or taxis. There is no functioning bus system in Nairobi, but rather an extensive use of vans (“matatus”) that travel along designated routes, or taxis. Neither of these options can easily accommodate wheelchairs and most often are hailed from the side of busy roads. Footpaths along the side of roads are generally unpaved, bumpy, dirt paths with unmarked road crossings.
