exchange rate!

Hi, we have just arrived in Nairobi and need to change some GBP to ksh. At hotel they'll give us 119ksh per £1. Just wondering what the best rate in one of the little exchange bureaus would be, or even at Wilson airport. Does anyone know?

Today's Central Bank of Kenya rate is 124.1928 which means you should get around 122.5 at very good forex, or 121 to 122 at an average one. In my bank today they were offering 121.47

Thanks! Do you know if there is a forex bureau by Wilson airport, as hotel we're at tells us they've only got small change which isn't enough for 2 weeks out bush in small camps and we're too far from one and too tired to go by taxi to a forex now, so hoping we can sort it out at or near wilson tomorrow morning.
