I booked two nights at the Wildebeest Eco Camp after getting a recommendation on this site, and reading the reveiws. I was not disappointed.
We stayed in one of the deluxe tents on the grounds of the camp. The tents are tastefully decorated with modern bathroom fixtures. Inside they look like the room in a 4-5 star hotel.
I also like the beutiful landscaping of the grounds. There are lots of mature trees and scrubs as well as flowers.
The camp has a real laid-back vibe. People gather on the patio in the eveing for dinner and conversation, and to use the free wi-fi.
There are no TV's in the tents, but t here is a guest lounge with a big screen TV with many cable channels. We did not spend much time there, but like the idea of having access to a TV if necessary.
They also have a tent that is set up with handicrafts that can be purchased and added to your hotel room. I did not buy anything, but saw some interesting items that were reasonably priced.
The staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay. Which was also a plus. Additionally, there is a 24 hour guard, so safety was never an issue.
We liked staying at Wildebeest so much that we booked an additional day at the end of our two weeks to stay there the night before departing back to the US.
Overall, we really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Wildebeest Eco Camp. I would surely recommned it to others wanting a different option than a basic hotel room.
