The Wildebeest Eco Camp in Nairobi is simply perfect. I recently spent 4 nights in a Garden Tent and absolutely loved it.
The garden tent was spacious and very clean. They are also waterproof which was great as we had evening storms each night. There is a choice of twin or double bedding, bedside tables with lamps and a safe if you want to secure valuables. It is only a short walk to the communal bathroom which was clean and had hot water most of the time.
Breakfast is included in the rate and has a good selection which you choose from the menu. If you wants extras there is a small charge per item. Dinner is served at a set time each night and although I didn't dine there l did see the menu and they had a good selection and is served buffet style. I found lunch and drink prices to be very reasonable too. All meals are served on the deck and is very social so even if you are travelling alone you will never be lonely.
They have free wifi and I found this worked well most days, even in my tent. All the staff I encountered were lovely and could not have been more helpful or polite. This is a really special place and if you are looking for a safe and welcoming place to stay in Nairobi this is it. I believe they have plans for a swimming pool too which will be a nice touch and should be completed within the next 12 months.
It is within walking distance to a shopping centre which has nice cafes or just a short taxi ride to the carnivore restaurant. A must do for people travelling to Kenya. Even as I vegetarian I found plenty to eat.
I will certainly stay at the Wildbeest Eco Camp again.
