Back in the year 1926, Galton Fenzi and Captain Gethin embarked on a road trip from Mombasa to Kenya's capital city, Nairobi. What they didn't know, however, was that this would be the start of the now famous Nairobi-Mombasa Highway.
The two adventurous Englishmen made it to Nairobi in a matter of days in their automobile. This is regarded as the first trip that actually mapped out the road that thousand of Kenyans use by day.
They had to maneuvre through a labyrinth of small pathways and where there was no way, they had to make their own. When they finally made it to Nairobi, this was seen as an amazing task to accomplish.
The now famous Nairobi-Mombasa Highway serves not just Kenya but the rest of East Africa. Uganda is connected to the rest of the world through this road which is used by hundreds of trucks carrying goods from Mombasa to Nairobi and the rest of East Africa.
