Wildebeest Eco Camp Nairobi offers a perfect feel of the wild within city limits. It is a great option for short stays in Nairobi offering a little introduction to the wild as you prepare for real safari adventures in various Kenyan national parks and game reserves.
This secret escape features various bed & breakfast accommodations which vary by budget and comfort, including camping, cottages, dorm bed, garden tent, family garden tent, deluxe safari tent and deluxe cottage room.
There’s wi-fi access throughout the property and a TV screen with DSTV at the guest lounge.
Wildebeest Eco Camp Nairobi Location
Wildebeest Eco Camp is located along 151 Mokoyet West Road, Langata. If driving from the city centre, go past Galleria shopping mall, CITAM Karen car park straight to Mokoyet West Road (it’s on the right). Turn up and drive 1.5 km on Mokoyet West road, first downhill then uphill until you see Home no. 151 on your left.
There’s never a dull moment at Wildebeest Eco Camp Nairobi. You will be kept busy with indoor games like table tennis, pool table, darts, board games, and cards. That is also a good opportunity to meet new friends or bond with your family or loved ones.
Cool off on a hot sunny afternoon by dipping yourself in the swimming pool or just laying down their beach chairs reading your favorite book. If you didn’t carry one, Wildebeest Eco camp has a guest library with a book swap option at the guest lounge.
The young ones will be fully entertained at the children’s play area with a junior swing. There’s also plenty of play space in the compound for them to burn a few calories.
When the sun sets and temperatures begin to go south, sit around the clean and spacious communal fire area, catching up with other travelers or making plans for your next adventure.
Alternatively, you can relax during the day enjoying shade from the tropical trees which also features sights and sounds of wild birds.
Safe on-site parking is available. If Nairobi is your final destination, be sure to buy gift souvenirs of local crafts and apparel from the gift shop at the reception.
Wildebeest Eco Camp Nairobi serves dinner at 7 pm featuring a sumptuous continental buffet which must be booked in advance with the chef at the kitchen or bar. This costs Kes. 1000 for an ‘all you can eat’ . Down it with a cold Tusker beer or a drink of your choice from the bar on the top deck.
Breakfast is served in the same place from 7 am to 10 am. I found the menu is a little bit slim especially if you’re staying at the more expensive rooms but it’s hot and fresh, with enough toasted bread to fill you up.
Having backpacked and camped in different areas in and out of Kenya, I can say this is one of the best breakfasts served in a camp site.
