“Oasis in the city for all budgets & Fantastic for Families with children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is our second stay here the first time the owners where around and this time the owners have been away. Just last night my partner and I were saying what a great job the staff are doing , everyone seems to be working very hard and is very friendly and welcoming. Being a vegetarian it would be great to have a little more choice on the buffet or offer a slightly lower rate, but after all this is not a luxury resort. This is a fantastic place and I would certainly come back anytime!

Room Tip: There is plenty of space for kids to run around, set of swings and a sand pit

The owners were not there and that is what we noticed! The staff was not friendly. The first night there was no food left on the poor buffet table. Dogs on the terrace, cat ON the breakfast table. The personnel went home at 17.00 and left my laundry hanging in the poring rain. No, definitely no second time.

I hesitate to give this 5 stars only as it is such a jem I want to advertise it too much and then they will always be booked up. Very simple accommodation but very comfortable, lovely surroundings, very good staff and most of all very good value in a city where hotels are SO over priced. oh and very friendly dogs!

Room Tip: Its a bit unclear on the website which rooms are shared bathrooms and which have there own so if you...

We stayed here twice recently and we thought it was a wonderful place out the noise and hectic Nairobi city. Very comfortable tents with ensuite and magnificent gardens, a little Gem in a crazy city.u

Room Tip: If you want a double bed make sure you ask some tents had only singles

We arrived late to the eco camp after a long flight. we had tried to arrange a cab through the camp but without receiving confirmation when requested we arranged alternative transport. on arrival we were told that they had arranged the cab and as we did not use it we may be charged.

In the morning we spoke with the recepetion and explained that we had received no confirmation. After speaking with the manager they agreed to our faces that we would not be charged. However on arrival back in the UK I discovered that the money had been taken out of my account.

When challenged about our conversation they ignnored it and said that they had sent confirmation which I had never received.

Also for $100 a room it is pretty shabby and you are right on top of the next tent which in oue case was full of South Africans up drinking and chatting until 2am.

We would definitely not recommend you stay here!

This was my second stay at Wildebeest Eco Camp, but my first at their new location. The grounds are stunning and the dorm beds were very comfortable and kept clean. Its a shame there is no self catering services provided as thats really the only place where the camp falls down. The food in the restaurant is adequate but expensive. You are best off shopping at the local Naukromat or going at the local eatery just on the main road which works out cheaper even when you include the boda boda charges to and from the camp.

The second year I stayed at the Wildebeest Eco Camp. I just love this place as it is the perfect environment to relax. The large garden is very beautiful. You can enjoy many species of birds.

Wildebeest has accommodation for every budget. Prices are low compared to other places in Nairobi. The amenities are great and are simply spotless. The quality of the beds is well above average. I am sure you will sleep very well here.

The food is tasty. The downside is that there are not many 'healthy' choices.

The people are friendly and helpful. They can help you arranging tours to Masai Mara and other parks in Kenya.
