How to get around?

The quickest and safest way to getting around is by taxi. Nairobi has an efficient network of app-based taxi companies, like UBER, BOLT and LITTLE. Download the apps from the app stores.

An ‘alternative’ means of transportaion is called ‘matatu’. Matatus are minibusses which carry between 14 and 30 passengers. They are frequent and cheap (between 10 and 100 Kshs). But beware: they speed and frequently disobey traffic rules and instances where passengers are robbed should also be a consideration…
