Taxis are available 24 hours a day at Nairobi International Airport. They are recognizable by their yellow color. Price must be negotiated with the driver before entering the vehicle. Nairobi being a very extended city, the fare and the duration depend therefore on the destination and on the road traffic. It takes up to 30 minutes between the airport and downtown Nairobi for a fare between KES1200 and KES2000.
Shuttles and buses
City Bus#34, which runs every 20 mins between 6AM and 9PM rotates between downtown Nairobi and JKIA every 20mn for KES35. The travel time, depending on the traffic, is about 45mn.
Minibus operated by hotels run between the airport, the city center and the tourist areas. If you plan to stay in one of them, ask if a shuttle is offered to guests. Private services of fast and comfortable shuttles are also offered to travelers to reach different localities.
