In Tsavo East National Park, on the banks of the Galana River lies Galdessa Camp. This distinguished safari camp is tastefully built and is designed to blend with the environment using earthy colours and natural woods throughout.
The camp 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.
Accommodation is in comfortable and spacious bandas (thatched, semi-tented bungalows on wooden platforms) each of which has en-suite bathrooms, verandas and are situated a good distance apart to provide privacy. Two of the bandas have a separate veranda on stilts (Banda A & 7). These bandas are recommended for Honeymooners as you can sleep under the stars, while being surrounded by elephants and hippos. The bathrooms are large and have traditional bucket showers, flush toilets and basins with running water.
The airstrip, Manyani, is a short 1 hour flight from Nairobi and the transfer from Manyani to camp is a 30 minute drive. By road, the camp is easily accessible, 3.5 hours from Mombasa and 4.5 hours from Nairobi.
Conservation: Galdessa works closely with Kenya Wildlife Service with the black rhino re-introduction project. Within Galdessa's vicinity there are 51 black rhinos, Africa's largest unfenced black rhino population. The camp has been built with great care not to adversely impact the environment and recycles its waste, uses solar power for electricity and has installed a water treatment plant.
