Safari Park Hotel, Nairobi

We are ending our safari with 4 days in Nairobi. The Safari Park Hotel looks like a great spot, but will the location cause transport problems if we want to do some sightseeing downtown or is it problematic getting to the airport. I presume we can take taxis, but will this be too costly or time consuming? Thank you

Safaripark hotel, while out of town, is on the Thika Hwy. There is a shortcut to the airport, so will take less then 45 minutes to get there, and the hotel has plenty of taxis to take you.

Getting into Westlands between 10 am and 4 pm will take 25 minutes, so not long at all.

The hotel however is a bit worn, and not the glamarous 5 star hotel it used to be.

Yup - a very nice hotel. But getting to town from the hotel is a nightmare. Getting to airport is easier if you take newly opened bypass ( off the Super Thika highway which ends up on MBA Rd.)

Nothing much to do or see in town anyway, except for shopping for curios. Best to avoid town altogether due to traffic jams.
