Taxi Airport to Voyager Beach Resort

Anyone tell me the going rate for a taxi from Mombasa airport to The Voyager ...... I know a lot of haggling will be required, but would be good to have an idea of prices

Should be around 2500. Most taxis operate a fixed price.

Why not contact voyager and ask them to arrange for one of their taxis to collect you? Since they stopped operating their people carrier they arrange taxis. I recall they quoted around 1800/- back in July so it probably has gone up a little since then.

For a long time the going rate for taxis at the coast was around 100/= per km, and it is still a good guide though you are likely to be asked for more as petrol costs have risen greatly in the last 18 months or so. The distance from the airport to Voyager is around 15 to 17 kms depending on the route, so you would have been able to get a local 'independent' taxi to do the trip for between 1,500/- and 1,800/- , petrol has gone up but tourist business has dropped and there is a lot of competition so I would say anything around 1,800/- to 2,000 would be a good price and 2,500 for a good quality 'official' taxi would be a little bit steep but not a rip-off.

The price should be 2500-3000 and you better go for a taxi with a priority pass at Kenya ferry due to long que which have been exprienced of late out of there go slow.

Jonesj,

Voyager is in Nyali on the North Coast, not on the South coast. The ferry is irrelevant

I'm not very good at distance so I'll guess at 3 or 4 kilometres - someone will verify. Either a taxi, tuk tuk or a combination of matatu and walking to get there.

Hi,

Its around 5kms between them, Whitesands is on Bamburi Beach and Voyager is on Nyali Beach. Their locations are marked on the map in the FAQs at the top right of this page
