Sightseeing in NAirobi

What is the best way to get around safely in NAirobi? We are there for 24 hours and would like to see the Sheldrick elephant orphanage,Giraffe Rescue Centre and the KAren Blixen museum. MAybe Bomas of Kenya if time.

Any advice please? Staying at NAirobi Serena-so quite central.

There are a number of reputable tour operators in Nairobi that will provide a full day tour for 2 people for less than half of the above cost including use of a private vehicle, a licensed guide, etc.

As guidance, you should be able to get a taxi for the day for about 5000/- - maybe a bit more with the price of fuel rising. This should be for under 100km. Check that and the hours. USE A RELIABLE TAXI FIRM with insured vehicles and a driver who will show you his ID and driving licence!

Hi - I will also be in Nairobi for a day in August and am intrigued about PattiC's suggestion to hire a taxi. About how much do you suggest would be reasonable for a day? Does $50 sound about right? Would you suggest to use US $ or Euros as a baraining chip?

$50-60 should be enough. I'd pay in the equivalent in shillings.
