It wasn't so easy to find accommodation next to Nairobi. We were not disappointed. The staff was helpful, we had one of their tent with beds and everything was well organized and really clean. The place itself is lovely and it was a good start point for our roundtrip all over Kenya.

As a solo traveller who had just been couped up in a tent for a month whilst driving up to Nairobi from Cape Town I don't think I could've asked for more when arriving at the wildebeest Eco lodge for actual accommodation. I treated myself to one night in their cottage which was so clean and nice and great bathroom... More

I love this place! I stayed here solo one night before my safari and missed it for the rest of my trip. The restaurant made delicious food with a good mix of traditional and western. I had a private room which was cute and clean. The grounds are spacious and relaxing. The pool was closed which was a shame.

The pool area was under some sort of renovation and not very inviting on our visit here. However the grounds are pleasant. There are budget tents and much nicer tents nearby the pool, they have their own bathrooms and are nicely furnished. The communal area has DSTV and is near to the bar/restaurant. Prices are average for Nairobi foods &... More

We stayed in a garden room at the Wildebeest Eco Camp prior to our departure for our overlanding tour. The grounds are spectacular. I was a bit sad the pool was closed when we were there but it was still pretty to look at. The restaurant serves great food at an affordable price. The room was decent. I would recommend... More

Lovely setting, especially if you like birds. Tents are a good size and set up nicely, breakfast was adequate. The only downfall was how many tents they had fitted around the grounds. It tends to be a little noisy well into the early morning with revellers and many barking dogs. Even with all that I much prefer this to a... More

Thank you so much for your review and we are happy to hear that we are still your preferred choice to stay in Nairobi. We are always working with other guests so that everyone remembers we are a 'tented camp', and to be courteous to fellow guests particularly early in the morning and later at night. But we hope that... More

For starters this camp is in the least expected place. Right in the center of Karen up market residential area, but once you drive through the gates is like you have gone through a worm-hole and came out in the middle of the Kenyan wild bush. My wife treated me to a surprise trip to this camp and I was... More

So, Paul and I booked a tent to stay there our first night in Nairobi when we arrived from the airport. We were booked on a safari the following morning, so this was just for one night. We planned to come back and stay there after our safari was done, but instead of staying in the tent, we booked a... More

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
