Kulalu Camp is run by friends and family and that is the ethos of the place; a Board of Directors who are committed not only to the smooth running of the camp and high standards for our guests, but also the wellbeing of the wildlife and the local community, the Watha tribe.
Tina Allen is a co- investor and Chair of the Kulalu Board. She has known and loved Kenya for 28 years, and has been a keen supporter of community projects in the area, including health matters and education opportunities for the “Hidden Children” suffering from polio. Along with Sue Aldersey co- director, they set up the dispensary at nearby Danisa 20 years ago which was the start of Tina’s long tern support for the Galana community. Tina is at her happiest entertaining guests along with Bob the bush dog.
Gai Cullen is both a board member and investor, she is proudly Kenyan born and bred. She is the Executive Director of Wells Fargo Ltd & sister company Fargo Courier Ltd. Gai is devoted to environmental issues, and in fact we have lost count of the number of strings to Gai’s bow. She is also involved in farming, raptor rehabilitation, permaculture and food security. She is passionate about the issues that face our wildlife and their future. Gai never wants to leave Kulalu when she is lucky enough to be there. Who does!?
Sue Aldersey is a valued member of the team. She is a co- investor and board member of Kulalu Camp and a board member of the adjacent Galana Wildlife Conservancy. She has a huge knowledge of farming in the UK and a passion for wildlife makes her an integral part of the team. Sue first came to Kenya 26 years ago and fell in love with the country and her people.
Eric Mwashighadi is a board member of Kulalu Camp. He manages camp and sorts everyone out! He is a business man in Malindi. Eric is highly respected for his tireless work with the Rotary Club and church and numerous other projects as Eric is a great people person. He works with passion and energy for Port Riez School in Mombasa with Tina. Together they are currently seeking out what they call “Hidden Children” – children with physical deformities who never go to school. Eric is a very kind man with a heart of gold.

The Kulalu Camp consists of five spacious and luxurious en-suite tents. We have one family twin-tent consisting of a double bed in one room and two single beds in the other room, perfect for families with younger kids who are not comfortable being separated.
We have another double and three twins each with en-suite, flushing toilet and a safari shower. Each tent is thoughtfully positioned to ensure a breath taking view of the Galana River and the Galana Wildlife Conservancy and has its own beautifully appointed veranda for quiet reflections.
Kulalu offers exciting safaris to view the wildlife in the Conservancy and Tsavo East National Park. When it is too hot to go on safari, then it’s time to take a dip in the “Cuddle Puddle” and relax with a drink while watching the wildlife. Wildlife is never far from your view at the bar from the camp balcony.
