Getting to the hotel

Hi there,

Heading to Nairobi in a few weeks. Is it safe to just head and get a taxi? Is car jacking a problem?

You should be fine in one of the reputable taxis found outside International Arrivals, such as Kenatco.

It's perfectly safe.

If you don't feel comfortable taking a taxi outside the airport, you can always request the hotel to send you one.

Very safe but the hotel you will be staying can make the arrangements for you and pick you up with just a slight extra of not more than 30usd if within the city.

Thanks everyone! The hotel I've booked doesn't organize it for you. They've directed us to KAA Yellow Cabs
