Driving Distances (road) for East Africa - Kenya & Tanzania

Ok, don't laugh , but I actually found driving distances (for road transfers) in Kenya and Tanzania - actually taking the kilometer readings (and converted them to miles) off the odometer of our vehicles whenever we arrived at our destinations. I amaze myself with what I do, but after the drive to Amboseli, I couldn't help myself. So here goes:

Kenya:
NBO/Amboseli - 150-mi, SE *
NBO/Samburu - 220-mi, N *
NBO/Ol Pejeta - 150-mi, N
NBO/Mt.Kenya Safari Club - 140-mi, N
NBO/Aberdare - 110-mi,N
Ol Pejeta/Samburu - 70-mi, N
Samburu/Mt.Kenya SC - 100-mi, S
NBO/MasaiMara - 210-mi, SW *
NBO/Lake Naivasha - 60-mi, NW
NBO/Lake Nakuru - 100-mi, NW
Mt.Kenya SC/Ol Pejeta - 10-mi
Mt.Kenya SC/Aberdare - 30-mi

Tanzania:
NBO/Namanga(Tanz)Border - 105-mi, S
Namanga/Arusha - 75-mi, S
Arusha/Lake Manyara turnoff - 75-mi, S
To Tarangire, 25-mi, S
To Lake Manyara - 25-mi, W
LM/Ngorongoro Crater - 75-mi, W
NC/Serengeti (Grumeti Area) - 155-mi, NW *
Grumeti/Lake Manyara - 195-mi, ES *
LM/Arusha - 100-mi, EN

* depending on where your lodge/camp are located in/near any of these parks, the mileage will either increase or decrease accordingly.

Do Not figure amount of time (hours) to cover these distances based on well-paved highway travel, rather, some roads are paved black-top, others combined with dirt roads and still others only dirt and even rutted roads - in most instances you can figure worst case, double the time. And that doesn't take into consideration stopping along the way to take photos, especially in the Serengeti.

Hope this helps.
