The main 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 this Tsavo Luxury Camp, as the game seeks relief from the heat of the day in the cool waters of the river.

Galdessa has a coastal/bush relaxed feel and is designed to blend with the environment using earthy colors and natural woods throughout.

Rooms & Suites:

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.

Food & Wine:

The Galdessa Camp has its own lounge and dining room where guests enjoy hearty meals and can relax during their free time from activities.


Activities at Galdessa Camp include game drives in open vehicles; walking safaris along the Galana River and sand rivers; sundowners and bush breakfasts; and visits to the nearby Rhino Camp conservation project (15 minutes from Galdessa). The camp's direct area is home to over 50 black rhino.

Tsavo East National Park is a wilderness area of great biodiversity. Uncommon species seen include lesser kudu, gerenuk, fringed-eared oryx, Hirola and Peter's gazelle. The area is renowned for elephants particularly during the dry season: the last count (1999) recorded 8100.

Tsavo is particularly rich in birdlife, with birds migrating from as far as Oman, Malawi, Iran, Germany and Russia.
