Green TaxiCabs are a great way to get around. Some individuals will urge you to stay away from cabs whose drivers are chewing khat, which is a natural stimulant with an amphetamine-like effect. Because of this, the Djiboutians and Somalis in the area have something called Merran, which is the Somali term meaning ‘energy.
Taxis range in price from 500fr to any amount, depending on the distance traveled. In the case of Camp Lemonier, the cost of transportation to the city center was 1,500FRA. Negotiate and you may be able to obtain a better deal, but there are more important things to do than dispute about 500fr.
