Most hotels in kenya have the common beers like tusker, plisner and gunnes etc. On price i wont comment but it should be around Ksh 300-400 bob per bottle. From the airport to the south coast i always take my common taxi driver whos car has a priority pass at the ferry to avoid long queue thus pass direct to the available vessel to cross the channel. All the best and enjoy your holiday.

Having been out to Southern Palms many many times we use the same taxi driver and the rate is 5000khs to Southern Palms. This is the going rate whether you have a priority pass or not!! This is for one way.

Beer - Tusker or Pilsner is served in bottles and costs 320 khs per bottle.

Please PM me if you wish a reliable taxi driver.

Hi - beer question already answered - but i think you will find that 5000ks is over priced for a pre booked taxi,

you should be paying no more than 4000ks one way - If you are planing to use the same driver for the return then 7000/7500ks would be a good price all round -

Just my experience. - enjoy your holiday.

Shamba. Southern Palms is at the Northern end of the strip of hotels on the Diani coast and if you have been there then any taxi driver will charge 5000 khs from the airport to the hotel.

That was the charge in May 2013.

I agree on the taxi charge of Kshs 5000. That would be a licensed taxi. Maybe the fly by night "taxi's" may charge Kshs 4000.
