The main Galdessa Camp is located on the southern bank of the Galana River, partially concealed by coppices of doum palms. The riverside location of the lounge and dining room ensure frequent wildlife sightings without the need to leave camp, as the game seeks relief from the heat of the day in the waters of the river.
Accommodation consists of 12 comfortable, 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.
Galdessa Private Camp can be booked exclusively and is situated a short distance from the main camp. With just 3 thatched bungalows, exclusive booking allows guests absolute privacy, your own dining room and lounge, as well as the freedom to plan days and meals as and when you wish.
The camp's open four-wheel drive vehicles take guests to discover the river frontage and its seasonal tributaries (lugards). As they often have permanent pools, the lugards are favourite 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 served by staff with cold, iced drinks at the selected lunch camp sites. Bush breakfasts and dinners can also be organised.
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 and monitor lizard.
