Using our usual tour operator Ferdinand Mwangwa of Beach Tours and safaris the cost to Tiwi from Moi would be 4000khs and from Ukunda airstrip to Tiwi would be 1700khs.

Has a very confortable safari new van for transfers.

Moi to Tiwi Beach should be Ksh3100 (as least it was last September) and to Diani from Ksh3700, depending on destination.

Ukunda airport (Diani Beach) to Tiwi is more negotiable Ksh1700 sounds about right but you might get it for less.

Ukunda airport to Diani Beach starts at Ksh200 for the nearest properties, but depends how far you're going (Ksh1200 would be 10-12km away at the southern end of the beach road.

There's no bus, sadly. Don't pay more than Ksh1000 for a cab (lots of those). Ksh100 per kilometre is about the going rate, though prices are rising as fuel prices increase.

Have a good trip!

There is a shuttle that runs from Mombasa airport to the city centre. Drop off point is on Moi Avenue. Charges are 150/- pp. Great if you're staying in the City Centre otherwise save yourself the hassle and take a cab from the airport.

Expect to pay 3500/4000 from Moi Airport to Diani (Yankari you must be tough haggler). Certainly all quotes at the airport will be over 4000.

Ukunda to Diani/Tiwi- really depends on the exact location but above prices are a good indication.

The shuttle for Kshs 150/- i excellent value for money. After you exit the arrivals hall, head towards the car park. The shuttle is always parked in the first bay on the left. It will drop you to Caste Hotel in the city.

NairobiTaxis: probably not tough enough! By the way, you need to read the whole thread before contributing (we've made the same mistake often enough!): my second reply was to poster #5.

Please tell us about this shuttle bus, though, which sounds a bit too good to be true! It would be a godsend. What's the schedule, and is there a website for the service?

Have a look at my profile and you'll see why I need to know…
