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.

Amazing peaceful place to escape the Nairobi urban jungle and relax. We stayed three nights with a space of two nights between, for the Safari trip. They kept our big luggage on their storage compartment! The tent was spacious and very clean. Also the shared facilities were clean and the showers had a lot of hot water. The breakfast has nice and different things to choose for every day, also the restaurant has menu of the day in good prices to choose. The location is a bit isolated but with an Uber is very easy and cheap to move around, very close to the Giraffe center and the Elephants orphanage, also Karen Blixen museum and Wilson airport. Loved the animals sound on the night! The Curio shop near the reception has really good stuff in really good prices, if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the Massai Market, that's the place you should visit first.

Restaursnt for breakfast, lunch and diner. Swimming Pool and fire place to relax. Only caveat is the neigbours dog barking regurly at night....

This is a great place to stay when making those long trips from Europe or the US into East Africa. Which is something I do several times a year. Nairobi is the main transport hub but is a bit of a difficult city to love. Wildebeest is an oasis of calm within easy distance of both the main airports and the roads heading south, north and east, further into the continent. The staff are really friendly and the accommodation is set in a large beautiful garden, it hardly feels like being in a city at all. I have heard both hyena and lions calling from the nearby Nairobi National Park at night. A really great place to stop and recharge before the next stage of your journey.

A very welcoming and comfortable place. My son and I stayed at the camp for three nights and enjoyed the wonderful hospitality. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. Also, the food was very tasty. The reception couldn‘t be more helpful in organising trips into town and to the airport

We arrive at noon, a very unfriendly woman welcomes us. 10 minutes later there was no one in the hotel except the cooker who was also the porter, the receptionist and who seems to have left as well. They left us alone in a huge hotel with no one to turn to. Towels were missing in the tends. There was no hot water in the morning and we had to go to the tend next door to shower. Of course, the unfriendly receptionist did show up when we left to charge us for the very bad dinner and drinks from the night before. A horrible hotel not recommended at all.

The reception staff were awesome, very friendly and professional. The place itself is great, a lovely setting and well maintained. The restaurant and bar are a problem. The barman/chef is a jobsworth, absolutely objectionable and made racist remarks. On day one I asked about booking dinner, at 1700, and was told I must order by 1500 (3 pm). On day two I tried to book at 1500 and was told I must do it at 1700, when I returned at 1700 I was told I should've booked by 1500, all by the same man who always took the the opportunity to be rude and unhelpful. I was not the only person to have this experience.

The camp was by ok but not value for money at all. The price on the website and the actual price differed- you end up paying a lot more that what is advertised. The rooms were clean. The breakfast served as part of the booking (b&b) was the bare minimum- you have to pay for normal extras like sausages, beans etc. The experience felt like they were looking for any opportunity to charge you … and where they couldn’t, eg if you ask for honey as a sweetener, it wasn’t available… I would only come back if I had no alternative.

Staff was kind, late check out was not an issue but the food… We had diner at the camp but it was terrible! They also serve very limited breakfast to we had to buy additional food to get full. You can spend the night at the camp but we recommend not to get diner there.

Beautiful grounds!!! A true refuge in Nairobi. Lush green gardens with fun yard games available. Our camping tent was not available so they upgraded us for free to a gorgeous tented camp - the nicest we had in 6 weeks traveling across Africa. Dinner was delicious with the best soups and definitely worth the extra cost. Quiet and peaceful. I think fondly of Nairobi ONLY because of Wildebeest Eco Camp. It was a bit far from the airport and city center but it is on the way to the parks on the west side of Nairobi, and you probably don’t want to go through Nairobi’s city center anyway. Overall: An amazing camp!!! Great value and I would definitely stay there again!

We started our trip at this lodge and this was by far, a favorite. Chef Johnston prepared the most wonderful meals. Even though it was a set menu, everyone enjoyed the chicken, beef and pork he prepared. I loved his vegetable dishes - they were inventive and perfectly seasoned. I only wish they served dessert! Mary and Julieanne ( think this was her name - I apologize if I've gotten it wrong) were great at breakfast and any time we needed something during the day. Winnie was also a big help! These four individuals made us feel welcome and at home. They helped us get settled in and couldn't do enough to make sure we were comfortable. The grounds are lovely. The rooms are a bit drab as one reviewer pointed out but the staff, food and location make up for that. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
