Galdessa Camp In Tsavo East Is An Essential Stop On Any Great Kenya Camping Safari

Galdessa is a premier Kenya Camping Safari Destination, and is small and up market, being situated in Tsavo East which is Kenya’s largest park. It is easily accessible by road from the east coast resorts, but is small with only eight tents or Bandas. Totally non trendy, Galdessa is geared for the family or couple with good taste who want an exclusive type experience on a Kenya Safari, and not mass market.

Galdessa sits above the Galana River, which continues to have a good water flow even in the dry season, and thus good game viewing and great wildlife sightings from the lounge and dining room which means not having to leave the camp when you are on a Kenya safari holiday.

The whole impression is one of laid back sophistication, and yet the guest feels in close and intimate contact with the Kenyan bush, and completely off the beaten track.

There are 11 comfortable and spacious tented bandas which are thatched, sitting on wooden platforms, with a wooden verandah, far enough apart and hidden by bushes and trees, so you don’t really notice your neighbors. There is solar powered electricity, traditional bucket showers, flushing toilets and running water.

Of course the purpose of a Kenya camping safari is to see, and get close to the animals, and at Galdessa, there are two main activities.

The first is the traditional GameDrive, and the riverside location means the four wheel drive vehicles follw the river, giving opportunity to see lions, cheetahs, elephants, buffalos, and rhinos who al come to the permanent pools along the river. If the trip is an all day affair, then lunch will be taken at a lunch camp site, and is normally three courses with cold drinks. Bush breakfasts can also be arranged, as can Dinners.

The second thrust is a walking safari where you are always escorted by an armed ranger, and you have the chance to see, and get quite close to lions, cheetahs, giraffes, waterbucks, impalas, zebras, dik diks, crocodiles, hippos, and occasionally leopard.

When you return to Galdessa, after another incredible day in your Kenya Safari, you’ll always be very happy with the high standard of cuisine, and the top flight service you will receive.

You can sit out viewing the river, hearing the sounds of the African Bush and watching the animals coming to the water.

If you are intent on a Kenya Camping Safari, visit Galdessa
