“An Oasis in the middle of Nairobi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2011

Arrived from London on flight that got us into Wildebeeste Camp at about 11 PM. Lorita, one of the owners was still up waiting for us . Booking in was simple and the beers and snacks came out as soon as we had unpacked.
We had an early flight to the game reserve the following morning so didnt have breakfast, but on our return again booked into Wildebeeste
The evening buffet meal was excellent and service quiet and unobtrusive.
I cannot understand the previous post about the cost of the beers. He should have been in the Maasai Mara and had to pay for a beer!!
The little shop had good quality ,interesting locally sourced handcraft at competitive prices

Room Tip: expect a camp site, and find a gem in city centre

As the last reviewer has said, we found this place to have a great location and very good value. The staff were very nice and the camp was very clean. There was a problem all over Nairobi with electricity, but the was not the fault of the camp, and they had a generator for light etc when the electricity was off.
I would highly recommend this place for good value.

Good food . excellent coffee! drinks always available
good location, near supermarket, main road, buses and city-but peaceful location! garden was beautiful, well kept with giant tortoises. Nice places to quiet or play. Great outside room and TV.
Such good, kind Aussies running it, and visitors were fromUSA, Oz, Europe and Africa.
