There is a range of accommodation to suite all budgets. You can camp under an acacia tree for only $12 per night or stay in one of the luxury ensuited safari tents from only $33 per person per night - including cooked breakfast.

An oasis of calm, lovely gardens and facilities. Really good value for money. Well located for access into city centre and Karen. As a single female traveller, I felt very secure and safe at this camp. Would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap but decent place to stay in Nairobi.

Wildebeest is a wonderful relaxing place to stay. I was so impressed by the place and service. Very friendly and helpful staff, fantastic meals, and a great place to meet other travelers. I would recommend this place. It was the best place I stayed at in Nairobi and I was sad to leave.

After poor quality of World Cup accommodation in South Africa, this place is breath of fresh air! Friendly, comfortable, leafy hangout for assorted travellers and volunteers. Can't wait to return

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

On my past visits to Nairobi my colleagues insisted on staying in one of the 'Big Name' hotels which I found to be soul-less with good service but not exactly what you might call homely.... And then I found the Wildebeest Camp.

I could gush on all day about the wonderful tents; the fantastic people I've met there and had really invigorating conversations with; the wonderfully helpful and discreet staff; the beauty of the place; the proximity to the city centre; the overall relaxed atmosphere and of course barney - the dog who looks like Scooby Doo. It was like home away from home. NO! Scratch that, my home is not even close to how cool the Wildebeest camp is.

Don't miss it. Really!
