We stayed at the Wildebeest for 3 nights and thought that it was absolutely amazing. It has a wonderful atmosphere with beautiful landscaping and plenty of open space, giving a sense of freedom in a secure environment. There is plenty of space for children with swings, a sand pit, a trampoline and a ‘flying fox’.
The staff were very friendly and helpful with all our needs and spoke perfect English. The safari tents were quite amazing. There is a real sense of being on safari even when you’re not. Ours had an en suite with plenty of hot water, flushing toilet, air conditioning and a very comfortable king sized bed.
The resort is very safe with vetted taxis for trips to the local malls, Nairobi or the National Safari Park. The owners ate with the guests at night and were very accommodating and interesting. They have obviously spent a great deal of money and have expended a lot of hard work to achieve this little oasis. The meals were very reasonably priced and were of European standard with plenty of variety.
We highly recommend this resort to families and couples who want the combination of being on the edge of the National Park (10 mins away), close enough to venture into Nairobi if you wish or just a place to relax for several days, either on a stop-over passing through or just for a place of relaxation. Plans are afoot to include a swimming pool which will add an extra dimension for relaxation.
