Galdessa is a small eco-tourism up-market tented lodge in Kenya's largest park. The accommodation and activities are geared at the discerning traveller looking for a private experience in the African bush. The camp is divided into 2 separate entities, each with its private lounge and bar which can be reserved on exclusive use basis. Throughout the Galdessa, the view is overwhelming. The Yatta Plateau, the world's oldest fossilised lava flow, overlooks the Galana River as it flows by, curving the sand bars and giving life in its wake.

The camps environs draw large elephant herds, antelopes and prides of lions - some, they say, descending from the famous Man-eaters of Tsavo. A stay with Galdessa is an authentic and intimate encounter with nature. The camp was designed to preserve the natural beauty of the site and epitomizes the true feeling of a safari camp in harmony with its environment.


Under the shade of the doum palms, the camp's 8 spacious "bandas" are comfortable, fresh, and elegant. Set well apart, they all face the river and the Yatta Plateau, the world's largest fossilized lava flow (over 200km long). The term "banda" is an African word describing a bungalow-like structure enhanced by the best attributes a true-tented camp accommodation has to offer. Two of our bandas are organised in suites, with their own, separate thatched sitting room where private meals may also be served. Our most remote banda is ideal for honeymooners in search of privacy, with its own sitting room, viewing platform and water wallow. The Camp's location on the river makes it ideal for sightings along its bed, either side of Galdessa Camp.
