Galdessa is an exclusive award-winning camp on Kenya’s east coast. The camp is located in Tsavo East National Park on the Galana River, sited under palm trees and overlooking the Yatta Plateau. Galdessa has a relaxed coastal ambience and is deliberately designed to blend with the environment, using earthy colours and natural woods throughout.

Accommodation consists of 11 comfortable and spacious thatched and semi-tented bungalows built on raised wooden platforms, each with an en-suite bathroom and private veranda. The bungalows have been built a good distance apart from each other, while natural foliage conceals neighbouring bandas, ensuring guests’ total privacy. The bathrooms are large and have traditional bucket showers, flush toilets and basins with running water.

Private Galdessa consists of three spacious thatched and semi-tented bungalows that can be booked on an exclusive-use basis.

Activities include game drives in open vehicles, walking safaris, sundowners and bush breakfasts, and visits to the nearby Rhino Camp conservation project. Galdessa works closely with Kenya Wildlife Service’s black rhino re-introduction project; within Galdessa’s vicinity there are 51 black rhino, Africa’s largest unfenced black rhino population.

The camp has been built with great care and sensitivity and is designed not to adversely impact the environment. It recycles its waste, uses solar power for electricity and has installed a water treatment plant.

Galdessa is close to both the Malindi/Mombasa coast and the Chyulu Hills, which by private charter are approximately 35 minutes away. The camp is a one-hour flight from Nairobi.
