Getting Around

To hail a shared taxi around town just stand at the side of the road and shout your destination as the taxi passes, or ask someone to show you the appropriate hand signal. Taxis cost GFr2500 per 3km zone. Minibuses (magbanas) are a bit cheaper but much slower.

To charter a taxi (called déplacement), find an empty one and bargain hard: Kaloum to Taouyah should cost around GFr60,000, and Dixinn to Taouyah around GFr40,000.
