This small eco-tourism camp is set in the middle of Tsavo East National Park, with high standards of accommodation and service. From day and night game drives in the open vehicles to walking safaris along the Galana River in Tsavo East National Park and wild luxurious meals in the bush, the experienced and enthusiastic staff at Galdessa knows how to make each day unique and exciting.
The camp has only eight luxury tented accommodation units (semi-tented thatched bungalows called bandas) spread over 9.5 acres for maximum privacy. Set well apart under the shade of the doum palms, they all face the river and the Yatta Plateau, the world's largest fossilized lava flow (over 200km long).
By road, the camp is easily accessible: 3 ½ hours from Mombasa and 4 ½ hours from Nairobi.
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 neighboring bandas.
The bathrooms are large and have traditional bucket showers, flush toilets and basins with running water.
