Getting around the sites in Nairobi

Hi I will be in Nairobi in August and was wondering about something. In seeing Nairobi based sites, like the elephant center, is that just a matter of taking a taxi? Hiring a car and driver? Or hiring a guide? Thanks

Mike,

Depending on what you wish to see, either, but you don;'t need a 'Guide'. If you intend to be out all day, just hire a man and motor for the whole thing.

Take taxi to Nairobi Orphange/Safari Walk, Sheldrick Ele & Giraffe Centre. You can do all of this in a single day. Perhaps even go for a short game drive inside NBI NP

I was planning to go to the Nairobi Museum. Do I need to hire a taxi to wait for me, or can I just catch another taxi when I am done. What about the Giraffe Manor?

Hiring a taxi for the whole day will give you the flexibility to go where you want and when you want and would probably work out cheaper than getting a tour guide.

If cost is less of an issue, then a tour guide can give an informative talk en route and is probably better at suggesting places that you might enjoy, if you get short of ideas.

As I drive myself, I am unfortunately unable to give you an up to date idea of costs for the above options.
