    I have a layover in Nairobi on Saturday (traveling from Kisumu to Amsterdam) of 6 hours (6pm to midnight). I was thinking of getting to the hotel and using the fitness facilities for Ksh 3000. This is okay with the hotel, but is the taxi/piki-piki journey doable in Nairobi traffic at this time??

    You will not find piki piki's at the airport as those are not allowed to enter. With 6 hours to go and given the distance to the Panari, you should be able to make it. Decide for yourself if you wish to have your baggage... More
