We stayed at Wildebeest Camp for 3 nights before heading out to Safari. We looked at various hotel options in the city, trying to find something safe and comfortable but hopefully not just a plain hotel. Landmarks like The Norfolk were totally out of our price range.
Wildebeest Camp is a really fun option -- We stayed in one of the deluxe tented camps and it was like getting a jump on our safari! Our tent was large and comfortable with a toilet and shower. Know this is sort of like camping, meaning dismal water pressure, a few bugs here and there, sunlight streaming in early, but we really enjoyed it.
We found not as much friendly interaction with the staff as we later encountered throughout Africa -- you are more on your own here, it kind of feels like a headquarters of sorts for people doing all sorts of trips and activities.
If you are looking for something a bit out of the ordinary with an almost "safari" feel to it, this might be the perfect choice for you!
