I've stayed at Wildebeest five times now, both solo and with my family. Every single time I've had a great experience. Not only are the grounds beautiful and the tents and rooms nice, clean, and fashionable, but the staff are SO AWESOME. They have helped me arrive at 2am, they've kept my luggage and received mail for me, and are...

Most people will stay in the fixed tents but camping is pretty good too. It has a lovely pool and bar area and the grounds are lovely. The facilities for campers are very good and they have a nice grassy area to pitch your tent. It's quite far from downtown Nairobi but that is not really a big deal and...

This is such a nice and relaxed place. Perfect to unwind after a 3 week group trip. The permanent tents are beautiful and the showers are perfect! Warm and a lot of pressure :D Also the food is not too expensive. It is a bit far out from the city center I have to admit, though the staff is friendly...

Wonderfully set out hostel/camp on the outskirts of Kenya, stayed in a shared 8 person tent, but didn't feel like it, was spacious and so did not feel crowded, beds were very comfortable also. Grounds are lovely and there is a nice pool and bar area. Bar area is good for getting to meet other guests. Some nights the camp...

Considering we were expecting a lesser type of accommodation, we were pleasantly surprised. Only problem I was looking forward to making a cuppa tea but to no avail. No tea making facilities and a fridge that didn't work. So not able to cool down our water and have a cold drink. The room was comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. A...

The camp is ideal for campers in the City and close to Galeria Shopping Mall. However you have to book beforehand place is mostly full..Could not get a garden tent but the staff are friendly and managed to setup a camping tent for us within no time.. They have a nice buffet for breakfast and dinner.

Wildebeest was great value accommodation in comparison to other options in Nairobi. The wifi was great and reached most areas. The bathrooms were clean and the restaurant was nice enough to make us a packed breakfast for our trek over the Tanzanian border the next day. However its quite possible that I got bedbugs from this hostel which is no...

Lovely accommodation in a quiet location in Nairobi, close to David Sheldrick and Giraffe Manor. We stayed in a garden tent, which was surprisingly comfortable and homely. Bathrooms are shared but always clean and showers were hot! Rare occurrence throughout the rest of our trip. The compound itself is really pretty and the pool is a big bonus. Most importantly...

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
