Get around by Green TaxiCabs. Some people will tell you to avoid the taxis with the drivers chewing Khat. Khat is not a narcotic, but a stimulant see: ( It gives the local Djiboutians and Somalis something called Merran the Somali word for 'energy'.

Taxis range from 500fr to any amount, depending on how far you go.

Some Guidelines:

Camp Lemonier to Downtown 1,500FRDowntown to Kempinski 2,000FRBase to Kempinski 2,500FR

Again, negotiate and you may get a lower price, but there are better things to do than to argue over 500fr 3 American dollars.
