Taxi cost - Airport to Eka hotel

Hi, roughly how much would a taxi cost from Jomo Kenyatta Airport to the Eka hotel, and how long does the journey take around mid day please?

Also I'm at the hotel for about 24 hours, is it worth heading out in the area or is there not much around there?

Many thanks!

Hi Canucks from the airport to Eka you will pay between $15-20 it take 20 mins but sometimes it takes 1 hour as there is road construction on Mombasa highway 2 weeks ago we spend 1 hour and actually missed our flight to Mombasa so take caution on the timing.

On what you do i would recommend a 3 hour visit of Nairobi National Park.

Hi - Eka Hotel is not very far from JKIA. During Mid-day, should take 30-40 mins due to traffic. Just behind Eka is a shortcut to Carnivore Restaurant. Further up the road from Carnivore is entrance to Nairobi NP.

Traffic is heavy, don't venture too far out from vicinity of Eka,

It was our argument that midday there will be no traffic and it was there.There are road construction going on and you cannot tell when the snarl will hit but Eka is not far from the JKIA.
