Getting Around in NairobiEdit This
To reach places outside of town, you can take a bus, matatu, or taxi. There are very many buses and matatus in Nairobi, so getting on the right one can be a bit confusing. Ask some one at your hotel which number to take, and where to get it. Most stages are in a bad part the capital, so be careful. For traveling in the Nairobi area, expect to pay KSh 20-30.
Taxis are the easiest way to get around Nairobi, but they can be very expensive. As a general rule, expect to pay KSh 200 to get around town, even if it's only two blocks. A trip outside of town, such as to the airport, could cost up to KSh 1,000. Be sure to bargain fares with drivers--their first offer is hight than what they will eventually accept.
