Liked: I liked the atmosphere and Justice one of the staff members. He was extremely helpful, friendly, patient, and accommodating. Whereas the Wildebeest Travels person and the female staff member left a lot to be desired. Upon arrival to Nairobi Justice was already helpful weeks before my stay with Wildebeest. Upon arrival he was very welcoming and a great help. The next day, that all changed with the two other staff members. It is too bad. I would not recommend this place for individual travelers. As arranging tours is made far too difficult and pricey. This should not be construed as a reflection of ones ability to meet fellow travelers as this was easy.

Liked: Over priced, and staff were rude, except the masai guy. We were over charged for rooms and when questioned were giving a long winded fake excuse why they were charging us extra. Apart from that the food, security and the vibe were all pretty good.

Customer review

10 December 2009

Liked: I have rated this property relative to my recent experience. It is a nice place however, when they charge nearly as much for wireless internet as the cost of the dorm bed then I have problems. The cost was free, then 300, now it is 500 KES which is close to 6usd per day. If you use their one and only computer the charge is 3kes/minute which works out to about 4-5 hours of solid wireless usage per day to equal the amount being charged for those with a laptop computer. The food is overpriced as well to an excessive point but it is good. The dorm room is fine, the camp is nice with good grounds but for those of us using a laptop computer the amount they charge is very, very excessive and not even close to being reasonable. Nice place to stay but for long term, too expensive if you have a laptop computer unless you plan to spend 5 hours per day on the internet.

Priit Parmann

08 December 2009 Priit would recommend this property

Liked: Nice and clean place with a fab garden, good foods and delicious fresh mango juice. The cheapest double room was really basic, but it seemed to be good value in Nairobi. The inside shared bathroom was clean, but it was very hard to lock it and shower cabin is just a bit too low for a 1.95 m guy :) Our stay was quite short, but the staff seemed to be very friendly and we also met a few jolly backpackers.

Liked: Nice, easy-going staff who were happy to answer questions and good answers at that!Location and grounds were lovely and well looked after. Felt very safe there and was a short walk to a large supermarket for provisions. Wasn't within walking distance of the city centre but a few bus routes went past and they were easy and safe to use.Our deluxe tent was superb and made a nice alternative to normal budget accomodation. Everything was spotless and very clean as well.A simple but good breakfast wrapped things up nicely!

Liked: They had very good food and helpfull owners/staff.They have a lot of experience so they can help very good with organise tours /safaries.The garden is beautifull and you don't have the feeling that you are so close to the citycentre.The private luxery tents are the best they have a bathroom inside and a very good bed! But the cheap rooms are also good if your on a lower budget!If we'll ever come back to Nairobi we would stay there again.Caroline (NL) and Gerhard ( AUT.)
