Taxi service

Hi

I'm arriving at the airport and need a taxi to my hotel. Can anyone recommend a firm or should I just queue in the taxi rank. Any advice on prices?

stapleford the going rate is 100 Kenyan shillings per kilometre.

If you have Google Earth on your computer you can use the 'ruler' tool and measure the distance of you journey thus working out the fare.

Don't get ripped off.

Yes ,that's true.

You won't even have to wait, plus the road from the airport to Ole Sereni is very good.

Just get a taxi when you arrive at the airport, ask the driver for the price (may haggle a bit, this is normal and easy) 1000 Ksh is correct, tell them you'll pay no more than that. Enjoy!

Can I pay for a taxi from NBO with USD? Do they insist on crisp new bills? Thanks.
