Not more then Kshs 4,500. If you are heading to Karen it might be more.

There is usually a mileage limit, which you won't use up if you are just in Nairobi.

I'd be very surprised if you could get a full day for Ksh5000 these days. I had to wrangle for that three years ago, with fuel prices 70% of what they are now and the cost of living much lower. I think you might get that if it was just into town and back again, but with driving around, he (she? - not seen a female cabbie yet, anyone?) would be counting the kms and would need to agree a clear itinerary before settling a price somewhere south of Ksh8,000.

(I'm assuming a pickup from JKIA - if it's all CBD, you still might get it for Ksh5000)

There's a mhindi one here in Nairobi. She's excellent.

As for day rates, I wouldn't expect to pay anything less than between 6500/- to 8000/- for full-day use. 4500/- would have been the price circa 2008-2009.

Heh, FL, we agree on something! Celebration time… ;-)

Seriously though, great to hear there are a few female cabbies about. It's only 30 years since I first saw a woman driving a bus in the UK, and actually did a double take it was so unusual.

Now if only social change could happen as fast as climate change. Just can't choose which soapbox this evening…
