Galdessa Camp Game Viewing and Activities

Tsavo National Park is still very much pristine and without mass tourism which does not come to this remote yet magical part of the park. Tsavo West is an international wildlife and environmental treasure chest. It contains a variety or habitat, geological soil types, plants, animals and birds. Tsavo West is hillier, rockier, greener and more vegetated than Tsavo East. Wildlife regularly use the campgrounds, especially elephants at least 8 000 in number. The camp is located in one of Africa's most successful conservation projects, and Galdessa works closely with Kenya's Wildlife Service's black rhino re-introduction project. They are lucky to have 51 black rhinos in its direct vicinity, Africa's largest unfenced black rhino population. Lion, cheetah, serval cat, genet, Masai giraffe, waterbuck, impala, lesser kudu, Perter's gazelle, dik dik, zebra, fringe-eared oryx, eland, mongoose and monitor lizard frequent this area of Tsavo. The park is also rich in birdlife, with birds migrating from as far as Malawi, Oman, Iran, Germany and Russia.
