Getting to Tharaka Nithi
The main mode of transport to Tharaka Nithi County is by road using Matatus, buses, private vehicles and motorbikes. There is no railroad or air transport. The county is easily accessible by road from Nairobi and other neighbouring towns. It takes three hours to travel to Chuka from Nairobi. Two hours from Embu to Chogoria, four hours from Nyeri to Chuka town, 45 minutes from Meru town to Chuka and at least one hour from Nanyuki to major towns of Tharaka Nithi County.
The recently re-carpeted Kathegeri-Chuka-Chogoria-Meru road is a delight to drive on and the ongoing revamping of the Ishiara-Kathwana-Marimati road is expected to ease travel to the county.
