I stayed 2 nights in the Wildebeest Eco Camp. I had originally booked a dorm bed, but after 43 days on the road on an Overland truck, I needed a bit of pampering. So I upgraded to a cottage with an en-suite. Which was quite reasonable by Nairobi standards ($US 55) The room was newly refurbished (still a smell of...

Thank you for your lovely comments. We have noted the issues with the water from the showers. Unfortunately you were one of the first to stay, so we were still ironing out some problems. We wanted a ‘walk-in’ shower feel – but with the water pressure being so high, it has caused problems. We have adjusted the water pressure, so...

This camp was amazing, I stayed there for 4 weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. I was in the dormitory for the most part and got to know the staff and resident animals very well. The food was simple and breakfast a plenty. I felt welcomed and safe with the guard on the gate and the attentiveness from the...

Emma, it was a true pleasure having you stay with us for four weeks. We are glad that you felt right at home and that everyone, including the pets, made you feel like part of the family. We have just completed 3 rooms at the front of the property (deluxe cottage rooms) which have kitchenettes (fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster),...

My favourite place to stay in Nairobi. It is a kind of best keep secret in Nairobi. Big spacious green garden with exotic plants, clean tents, good location not so far from Giraffe centre, Elephant Orphanage and shopping centre Galleria makes this place one of the best choice in Nairobi.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us again. We are glad to hear that you consider our camp is the best place to stay in Nairobi. We have tried so hard to strike a great balance and provide excellent clean, safe facilities, that are good value, in what can be a very expensive city. Thank you also for mentioning...

Great place, made doubly so by tremendous value for money. Dinners excellent. Staff wonderful. Coordinated taxis and as solo traveler they helped match me with others for local outings. Very comfortable garden tent, comfy bed and linens. Bathrooms just okay, nothing special. In short, can't imagine finding better deal for money in Nairobi and very pleased with my visit.

This place is quiet, beautiful and has very clean dorms and sanitary. Lots of different travelers you meet there, couples as well as singles. You can enjoy the evening at the terrace with a lot of drinks (nice white wine!) to choose at the bar. High quality camping!

Thanks for your great review and we are pleased that you enjoyed a few drinks and socialising on the deck. There are often a really interesting mix of people staying, and a great place to sit and share ‘war stories’. It must be nice to know that even if you are camping and only paying 1,000/- per night, that you...

A great place to stay. The property is immaculate and tents are well appointed. I would certainly return again. One caveat though: the full day tour of the elephant orphanage and giraffe reserve is way overpriced at $90 USD per person. You can hire your own driver and do this for about $40 USD solo. I made the owner aware...

wildinafrica, Manager at Wildebeest Eco Camp, responded to this review

Matt, thank you for your review and for taking the time to come and talk to us personally before you departed. You are right, there is a disparity in charges for some services that you can get at the camp, versus via roadside operators. The main reason for this is licences and tax. The government implemented over almost 20% VAT...

We stayed here for one night in June, our safari starting the following day ,with pick-up arranged from the airport. Arriving after dark, check-in was efficient and we were soon shown to our ensuite tent with the restaurant pointed out along the way. We had pre-booked dinner buffet with a "plate saved" option so quickly left our things before heading...

Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed you stay and that you thought it was good value. We are sorry that you arrived a little take for dinner. Normally, our kitchen team would have kept plates of food aside for you, so we will ensure this is done for future guests. You are absolutely correct about waste and...

My wife and I stayed at the Wildebeest camp several times during our honeymoon, and they arranged our private 7 day safari as well. The camp had a great and safe location. We found it quite incredible, that it's possible to found a safari-like camp in the outskirts of Nairobi. The staff on the site was great and the Australian...

My friend and I stayed here on our way in and out of Nairobi. We stayed in a garden tent and it was very nice and clean. The tent was spacious and had 3 comfortable beds.

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
