Tsavo National Park
Galdessa Camp is situated in Tsavo East National Park, on the southern bank of the Galana River.
Tsavo East National Park is great walking country, and Galdessa Camp is renowned for its walking safaris. Guests can enjoy discovering the diversity of the park on foot and have an intimate encounter with the wildlife that frequents the area, including lion, cheetah, serval cat, genet, elephant, Maasai giraffe, waterbuck, impala, lesser kudu, Perter's gazelle, dik dik, zebra, fringe eared oryx, eland, mongoose, monitor lizard.
The camp's location alongside the Galana River makes it ideal for game drives and wildlife sightings. The open 4WD vehicles will take you to discover the river frontage and its seasonal tributaries (lugards). As they often have permanent pools, the lugards are favorite haunts of lion, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, and rhino.
Full or half day game drives can be arranged to explore the Park's expanses, and a 3 course picnic lunch will served by staff with cold, iced drinks at selected lunch camp sites. Bush breakfasts and dinners can also be organized.
The accommodation consists of 11 comfortable and spacious thatched and semi-tented bungalows on wooden platforms, each with an en-suite bathroom and private veranda. Guests are ensured their privacy as all of the bungalows are situated a good distance apart and natural foliage is used to subtly conceal neighbouring bandas.
The bathrooms are large and have traditional bucket showers, flush toilets and basins with running water.
The riverside location of the main lounge and dining room ensure frequent wildlife sightings without the need to even leave the camp, as the game seeks relief from the heat of the day in the cool waters of the river.
