Having vast amounts of excess baggage we decided to do a road trip incorporating a safari in Tsavo instead of our usual internal flight from Nairobi to Malindi. We were told the journey would be 6 hours first day, overnight at Kalalu then 2 hrs onward journey to Malindi. It took considerably longer than that....almost double the time in fact.... More

This is an amazing location for a very small (6 tents) game lodge. Due to its size the service and food are excellent, and you have the chance to watch the moon rise over the galana river whilst drinking sun downers. The game in the Galana conservancy is a bit hit and miss, although I have regularly seen lion, however... More

Kulalu is a wonderful little camp on the banks of the Galana River, right across from the Galana Conservancy. It is about 20 min down the road from Tsavo East. Kulalu has a broad stone terrace overlooking the river, where you can watch elephants bathing, hippos, crocodiles, and the baboons and antelope on the farther bank. Galana Conservancy is a... More

I have just returned from Kulalu Camp after spending two weeks in the Galana Conservancy on a volunteering trip. This place is amazing! The setting is perfect, the staff are experienced and very willing to help with anything, the accommodation is in really good 'glamping style' tents with proper toilets. The surrounding wildlife came to the river regularly and safari... More

I've been three times and had a terrific experience each time. Imagine sitting at the end of your bed and watching a kingfisher four feet away on a post by the river. Then imagine a croc waiting for dinner and wondering if the warthogs are going to make it (or be it). The night drives are fantastic and a rare... More

It is situated on the banks of Galana River making it a wonderful location. Everything around was very dry but the river was gushing with water. The chef was fantastic and even managed to cater for vegetarians even though he was informed last minute. The caretaker was also lovely and very helpful. It is quite expensive but a nice place...

The experience in kulalu camp was fantastic.The staff were friendly and jovial.We could watch animals drinking water from their restaurant and at the tents entrance.For those who like reading there was a mini-library with interesting books and if u prefer fishing the tools were there. At night I could hear lions roars. The design of their bathroom is very unique... More

Only 5 tented camps located on the river. First tent is a family tent can accomodate 5. The bathrooms are really interesting but too many bugs coming in, gets abit annoying. Tents are spacious and service is good. Free laundry, drinks inclusive. Fishing and sundowner available. Food is good...loved the kitchen! Friendly staff....would recommend

This is a beautifully run little private camp. You can tailor your stay here to suit your interests. The staff are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, The tents are well separated with very comfy beds, good mosquito protection and a fan, and all of them overlook the river with their own little veranda. The stunning bathrooms have typical trickley camp showers,... More

Living in Kenya for the past 18 years, we travel extensively, love safari, visiting new hotels and lodges. Kulalu Camp just outside of Sala gate of Tsavo National Park was an unexpected surprise. We travelled with Kenya Museum Society on 4 days Easter trip to Malindi through Tsavo East National Park, entering at Manyani Gate and exiting at Sala Gate.... More
