It wa our first time to Kenya on safari and staying at Wildebeest. Having gone down a long very bumpy road it was a nice surprise to see the camp and all it had to offer. The delux tents are very clean and just enough space for us (a family of three). We did not find the staff overly friendly or helpful but we were out and about most of the time so that did not matter greatly to us. Breakfast was ok with toast, eggs or pancakes. If you want anything else you need to pay for it. We did not have dinner there in the evenings as we went out but people told us it was nice. It was very cold in the tents at night in February so make sure you take some warm clothes. The camp also has two dogs which belong to the owners, which are very friendly so if you have children that are not used to dogs be prepared. All in all, we found it a good base for our safari in the national park and to relax in after a full day out and about. Would I go again? Probably not as I would want to experience other places also. Would I recommend it to others? Yes I would.
