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... More

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... More

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... More

This is my 8th stay at this beautiful camp in the suburbs of Nairobi and I feel this review is way overdue. The hospitality and welcome are second to none. Owners Alan and Lynita are professional and friendly and have worked extremely hard to create this haven of peace and tranquility. From the luxury safari tents to the dorm rooms... More

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. The shower, unfortunately, was cold with poor water pressure. The staff at the restaurant counter and the front desk were very helpful and friendly.... More

We have stayed at their 'old' place on earlier visits but this was the first in the new location. It is more rural but I am not sure I do not prefer the older one. Despite being further out I found the noise of the nearby Wilson airport intrusive and things here just did not seem to gel. We had... More

Place is decent and nice. Got a garden tent. Wifi doesn't work really and staff are indifferent about helping you fix it. For a short stop over or independent travel Id say it's a good pick. You get a good value overall but staff could be more professional.

We were here with family for camping. It's a lovely well maintained place. Very scenic too. The camp location is such that you feel out of Nairobis busy life. It's very near to gallaria shopping mall. You gave choice of carrying your oan tent or hire theirs. They have luxury tented rooms if you don't want to camp. The breakfast... More

We live in Nairobi, but on the other side of town and don't get to Karen much due to traffic and this is in the best location. Reasonable prices. We brought our own tent and set up in an area they were building up. If you stay where the other tents are, they are close together. They have a lot... More

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
