Having booked two nights here because of it's close locality to Nairobi National Park, I can only say I was disappointed with my choice. Firstly though, I am impressed with the De Lux en suite garden tents, they were very clean and tidy on arrival, although they do not tidy or clean the rooms during the stay. The water eventually...

Situated comfortably (if not all that conveniently) outside of the centre of Nairobi, this camp sports clean dorms and facilities, a good kitchen and terraced area to hang out, reasonable wifi connectivity, friendly and helpful staff. There is a large mall quite close (walkable for the keen) and they can organise plenty of activities throughout East Africa. Considering the quality,... More

My friends and I stayed at Wildebeest very recently in one of the en suite tents and were very impressed. It is a great safe place and also a very attractive place to stay and very clean. We used the camp as our Nairobi base before going on to other places, and each time we came back it felt like... More

I used Wildebeest as a base for various trips all over Kenya. It surpassed all my expectations. Three of us sharing stayed in an en suite tent, it was vast, clean and seriously comfortable with a private deck and chairs. Being right in the corner we were not disturbed. It's not in central Nairobi, which I thought was pretty perfect,... More

Staying here for 2 nights. In the budget room. Really comfortable bed. I can't fault this place. So relaxing sitting in the beautiful grounds listening to the birds. The food is good, and breakfast is included. The staff are so helpful, and the owners have two adorable boys. This will be my first choice next time I am in Kenya.

We had already been travelling for some time when we arrived to Nairobi, and though it was expected that our budget would have to go up for the Kenya portion of our trip, it was still unpleasant to pay more for a night of camping in our own tent than we had been paying for a private room weeks ago...

We stayed at Wildebeest in March and enjoyed the atmosphere and wonderful tents! The deck of the restaurant is a gathering place with wifi and plug ins for convenience. Enjoyed the landscaping. It is difficult to reach from the Nairobi Airport through awful traffic (not their fault!).

Wildebeest Eco Camp is one of my new favorite places to stay. Our stay there was serene, quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The food was excellent and the dining area is a wonderful place to relax. The rooms are beautiful - we stayed in a deluxe tent and loved the bathroom and comfortable beds. The front desk staff are friendly, helpful... More

The hostel/camp is located some 10 minutes outside of Nairobi, it has a beautiful garden and you can sleep in a dorm (tent) or private tents. They have drivers available which will bring you everywhere for the same price as a taxi. They have airport transfers as well, which was very convenient, since my flight arrived at 3 a.m. They...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wildebeest Camp is the perfect place to relax during your African migration! The friendly 'home-like' atmosphere is a great place to meet other travelers, or to just relax and enjoy the amazing gardens. The well-established tropical gardens are home to hundreds of varieties of plants and birds - and we even have a vegetable garden, as well as a variety of fruit trees. There are many accommodation options to suit any budget. We pride ourselves on offering the best value accommodation in Nairobi. All rates include breakfast. We have our own vehicles running airport transfers, day tours and safaris. Accommodation is suitable for singles, couples, families and groups. The large deck overlooking the water feature and camp is a great place to meet other travellers. For those who are watching the pennies, but do not want a rock bottom experience - you will appreciate the attention to detail in the rooms and camp grounds. ... more   less
