Taxi cost Nairobi

We are in Nairobi just a few hours. Hotel is in Westlands but would like to go to Sheldrick wildlife trust then Karen Blixen museum - say 10a.m. from hotel and coming back say 4p.m. Does anyone know the approximate taxi cost please? We are going in September. Thank you.

I would allow at least 90 minutes to get from Westlands to Sheldricks. You never know if there will be a traffic jam, and you don't want to be late for the elephants. Assume you want to be at Ele's by 10.45 am, then leave Westlands by 9.15 am, latest by 9.30 am.

This would be close to a full day's hire. Allow around Kshs 5-6000.

taxi hire will cost you 80- 100 USD for that much time

david sheldrick is normally open at 11 am n closes 1 hour later so you must be timely.

try to get a credible taxi company
