We went to wildebeest right after climbing Mt Kenya.
And it was the best: the tents are enormous, there's high speed free wifi, the burgers are delicious, the staff is helpful and friendly,...
We asked the camp to organize a small trip to Kibera the next day. Once there we saw some americans with big cameras and 2 soldiers with guns to protect them. This is the stupid voyeuristic 'slumtourism'. But we went with a guy, Rick, who lives in Kibera, so he really knows the neighbourhood. He took us to his own and his father's house and told us a lot on how it is to live in Kibera. Honestly, I could not imaging living there. But still, and thanks to Rick, we never had an unsafe or depressing feeling. He showed us how really Kibera is: poor, but with warm people who still make the best of their lives.
The camp also organizes a lot of safaris. We didn't book these, but other guests we talked were very happy about their safaris!
So everything is positive about the wildebeestcamp!
