Galdessa Camp is situated in the heart of Kenya's largest park, Tsavo East National Park, on the banks of the Galana River. The site is 15 km upstream of Lugards Falls, famous for its beautiful rock formations, where there is also an airstrip, which can be used for private aircraft transfers. In the pristine wilderness of Kenya's largest wildlife reserve, each day of your Kenya safari is dressed in a new colour whether on foot, at night, or in one of the open safari vehicles.
Galdessa Camp has 12 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.
One of the true delights of being on safari is a bush breakfast after an early morning walk or game drive. Guests are taken to a dry, sandy riverbed to find a table laid with pristine linen and china under the shade of the doum palms. Waiters appear from the bushes with cold, refreshing face towels to take your orders, as the welcome smell of freshly cooking bacon and sausages wafts through the air.
The perfect ending to a day in the bush is with an ice cold cocktail and hors d’oeuvres in one of the park’s most spectacular settings. Brightly colored rugs and sofa cushions are laid out on the large boulders overlooking the Galana River where you can lay back and relax and watch the sun slowly set over Mount Kilimanjaro.
