Galdessa Safari Camp Location

Galdessa Safari Camp: Galdessa Safari Camp is a small eco-tourism camp is set in the middle of Tsavo East National Park, on the banks of the Galana River overlooking the Yatta Plateau, 15 km upstream of Lugard’s Falls.

 

Why Stay at Galdessa Safari Camp?

* Galdessa Safari Camp organizes bush breakfasts and bush dinners around the Park

* Galdessa Camp location on the river makes it ideal for sightings along its bed on either side of the Camp

* The safari guiders often take you to explore this route and others along its seasonal tributaries, known as Luggas which are favorites of lions, cheetahs, elephants, buffalos, and rhinos, as game always needs water, and Luggas often have permanent pools

 

Galdessa Safari Camp Accommodation

Under the shade of the Doum palms, Galdessa Safari Camp 8 spacious "bandas" are comfortable, fresh, and elegant. Set well apart, they all face the river and the Yatta Plateau, the world's largest fossilized lava flow (over 200 kilometers long).

 

The term "banda" is an African word describing a bungalow-like structure enhanced by the best attributes a true-tented camp accommodation has to offer. Two of Galdessa's bandas are organized in suites, with their own, separate thatched sitting room where private meals may also be served.

 

The most remote banda is ideal for honeymooners in search of privacy, with its own sitting room, viewing platform and water wallow.

 

The Galdessa room is set under a thatch structure for coolness and comfort, with a spacious en-suite bathroom/dressing room. Perfectly adapted to the environment, it is a refined expression of the safaris of yesteryear.

 

The walls are made of canvas and mosquito netting tastefully set in timber frames. The natural woods, thatched roofs, stone tables and mosquito netting form a romantic interior which enhances the contact with the rhythms and sounds of the natural world outside.


Galdessa Safari Camp Tsavo East is situated under the shade of doum palms and is divided into downstream and upstream camps. The central buildings house a spacious dining area, a bar, and a large, comfortable lounge where guest will have their meals and relax during their free time from activities.

 

This main area is located along the Galana river, where the majority of the game aggregate during the dry season. The thatch roof, Galana stone floors, and deep, bed-size sofas give it a charming coastal atmosphere.

 

Tsavo East National Park is still very much pristine and you will live your experience without the inconvenience of mass tourism, which does not come to this remote yet magical part of the park.

 

Wildlife regularly use Galdessa Safari Camp-grounds, especially elephants at least 8,000 in number, constitute Kenya's largest population, a daily sign that the Galdessa Safari Camp and Friends of Tsavo Organization have succeeded in minimizing the impact on the environment.
