We chose Galdessa for our first safari based on TripAdvisor reviews (we booked independently). We spent 3 nights at the camp and then went to their sister property Alfajiri along the coast. Galdessa was fantastic. Syvlia the manager was incredibly attentive, and the game drives and walking safaris were unforgettable. The lodge is small which makes it very intimate, and its location ensures you rarely if ever see anyone else while on a game drive.
