Reliable taxi company

Hi, I am looking for a reliable taxi company in Nairobi. I am landing in Nairobi on 29th December and am heading for a safari the day after. I am thinking of visiting the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and the Giraffe Centre (well, I am not quite sure of the Giraffe Centre). I have already asked at the hotel I'll be staying but I think they are a bit overpriced: They want 100 USD just to drive to the David Sheldrick Trust and back to the hotel at Harry Thuku Road. … If anyone could advise on a taxi company, I would be grateful. … Best regards, Barbara/Vienna

Following,

www.maasaitrailseastafrica.com

My pick up from the airport and transfer to the shedrick Trust(Animal Orphanage) then drive to the hotel with a local tour operator which runs cabs was charged U$60. The orphanage is open 1100hrs for feeding and closes some minutes to 1400hrs. Again it all depends on what time you arrive, the drive to the Orphanage can as well be long due to the traffic Jam, after the Mvuli Houes/Langata road.

If then you have to go to the Girafee center, U$60-70 would be a a fare deal, keeping in mind the car will be on standby for you(full day rates will apply/may apply)

As an indication, I had a driver and car for the full day in Nairobi last week which included trips as far apart as The Junction Mall and Village Market and a few other places in between. Cost was 5,000 shillings (~$60).

This was who I used: www.winnertoursandtravel.kbo.co.ke/home. The company is owner-operated. If you decide to approach them, I suggest you ask for an all-inclusive quote up front and clarify the method of payment.

Thank you all for your quick replies. In the meantime, I have settled with e-safaris.com and will pay 60 USD for the Giraffe Centre and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which to me seems fair. … Happy holidays! Barbara
