Galdessa Camp – Tsavo East

This exclusive camp is spread along the river under doum palms overlooking the Galana River and the Yatta Plateau.

Accommodation is in 11 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 separate sitting rooms and a large veranda on stilts and they are highly recommended for Honeymooners. The bathrooms are large and have traditional bucket showers, flush toilets and basins with running water.

The central buildings house a spacious dining area, a bar, and a large, comfortable lounge. The thatch roof, Galana stone floors, and deep, bed-size sofas give it a charming coastal atmosphere.

Galdessa is featured as one of Africa’s top 10 lodges by Lucia van der Post for UK Vogue, January 1998.
