Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I want to know how the wildlife walks and rides work. Are there package plans? Do arrangements have to be made in advance or can we do activities ala carte and decide while we are there? Does this require traveling with large amounts of cash? What is the best way to make the most of staying here?

Does Galdessa provide walking sticks for the nature walks please? We will be there in about 10 days and if we don't have to bring them with us from Arizona, it would be nice to know. Thank you.

I would be travelling from Bristol uk to I guess nirobi? perhaps you can tell me which day is best to book from the uk as we are flexable..I would love a private game drive on the 14th unless you offer everyday..perhaps you could team us up for the beach for a couple of days too? many thanks wendy evans 07795432653
