Get in Touch to Book a Retreat in Tsavo East National Park

Galdessa is a safari-style camp situated along the banks of the Galana River, within the very heart of Tsavo East National Park. The conservation "not for profit" template for SWT eco-lodges ensures all proceeds from staying in their beautifully appointed properties go directly back into wildlife preservation, specifically supporting projects within Tsavo.

A truly unique part of joining our Tsavo retreats is the adoption of your orphan elephant and as a foster parent, you will be able to visit one of the Elephant Reintegration Units, meet your adopted elephant and learn more about the project first-hand. With this adoption, you will receive; a personalised adoption certificate, access to unique content, the latest Keepers' Diaries, videos and photos, and monthly email updates on your orphan and the project during the lead-up to the retreat.

A Little More Info

Summarised Itinerary

The essence of our days in Tsavo revolves around safaris and wildlife. This might involve visiting the Elephant Reintegration Unit, enjoying game drives, indulging in bush breakfasts and watching the sunset in unique corners of the National Park.

Lunches take place in the camp, followed by a few hours of relaxation and solitude, giving you the freedom to decide how to spend your time before gathering again for a yin yoga. Afternoons can be spent delving into a book, engaging in conversation with one of our guides, treating yourself to a massage, or taking a refreshing swim in the pool, the camp is enveloped by pure wilderness, with wildlife activity all around.

Luxury Eco Lodges

The conservation-focused templates for the properties we stay in Tsavo East National Park ensure that all proceeds from our stay directly contribute to wildlife preservation and support various projects within Tsavo. This means that on this retreat, you are actively giving back to the environment and local initiatives that you get to enjoy.

Sundowners & Starry Nights

Each afternoon at 4 pm, we come together for a relaxing session of Yin Yoga or Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation. Following this calming session and a daily highlight during our retreat is a short early evening game drive, followed by a magical sundowner in a secluded spot within the National Park. Here, we savour drinks, and nibbles, and witness the enchanting sunset, succeeded by the moon's rise. It's the perfect end to the day before returning for an in-camp dinner and a peaceful night's sleep, serenaded by the soothing sounds of the wilderness.
