Directions for your Nairobi airport taxi

Nairobi airport (NBO) also known as Jomo Kenyatta International airport is the major international airport for Nairobi and the busiest in Kenya. A taxi transfer from Nairobi airport into the city centre will take around 20 minutes in light traffic as it’s located just 18km away from the central ring. After leaving the main compound, your Jomo Kenyatta airport taxi driver will head northwest onto B10 before merging onto Mombasa Road/A104. He will then take the 2nd exit at the roundabout and drive along Uhuru Hwy/A104. Finally, your driver will take the third exit at the following roundabout and head onto Haile Selassie Ave. From here, he will use the smaller local roads to reach your hotel. 

Why a Jomo Kenyatta airport taxi is the best for you?

Unlike other modes of transportation, Nairobi airport taxis are available 24/7, offer direct transfers and make sure your personal belongings stay closely and safe. You’ve had a long flight, so why add the stress of navigating public transportation to your list? Our drivers are all fluent in English, knowledgeable in the local area and ready to take care of all your transfer needs. 

Cost of your Nairobi airport transfer

Jomo Kenyatta airport taxi drivers don’t offer a set rate fee for the 20-minute journey into the city centre, nor do they operate using a taximeter.

Keep in mind that these prices may change depending on the time of day, the vehicle type, number of people, at the driver’s discretion.
