Getting Around Nairobi
  Nairobi Travel Tip

If you take a taxi, make sure it is licensed. Major operators have metered vehicles. The smaller operators, often owner-drivers, have yellow lines on the side of their vehicles. I f a cab does not have a meter, agree on a price before you leave. Hotels often have vans and buses. Local buses are for the adventurous only. However, they are cheap and it's a way to meet the local people.

Some tour companies offer chauffeur-driven cars that will take you to your destination. Make inquiries before you leave home through tour operators at a travel agency.

Daily flights are available between Nairobi in the highlands and Mombassa on the coast.

You can bring your own car into the country. You will need a Vehicle Registration Certificate, Insurance, and a driver's license from your own country or an international permit. Check for other requirements before leaving home. Domestic driving licenses are valid for 90 days but must be endorsed at the police station on arrival.

Car rentals are available, however, getting around the cities and country side by automobile is unnerving. Most roads are gravel with potholes and the villages with services are far apart. Four wheel drives are your best bet. And remember the elephants have the right of way.
