Nestled amidst forest and brush, Galápagos Safari Camp is a luxurious tented camp offering a unique new way to explore the Galápagos. From a wooded perch on Santa Cruz Island, embark on excursions to see the wildlife and beauty of this treasured region.
Nine tents on raised platforms comprise the accommodations at the camp, each protected by three layers of specially-designed outer canvas. Pass through the tent on the elevated wood balcony to find a spacious interior set off by custom furnishings and an en-suite bath. Relax on the hammock and balcony furnishings or sit at the writing desk to plan and reflect on the day’s travels. An electric fan and heater, flush toilet, hot shower, and plush bedding provide comfort in the seemingly-rustic spaces. A spacious three-bedroom home custom-built by the camp owners is an additional retreat, ideal for families or groups of up to eight.
Spare time is best spent at the elevated main lodge, soaking in magnificent panoramic views from the floor-to-ceiling windows and wrap-around veranda. Outside, a cozy fireplace creates the perfect setting for enjoying a drink from the bar or a game of chess in the lounge. Dine from the local and international menu, prepared fresh by hand using organic produce and meats tended on the 55-hectare farm. Sheltered by the flora and overlooking the forest and sea, the camp’s Infinity pool offers a welcome cool dip amidst tranquil surroundings.
Set out to explore the “highlands” of Santa Cruz Island, the plains once used for cattle farming, now being reclaimed by native trees with the help of the camp’s conservation project. Visit the neighboring tortoise reserve to meet the ancient denizens, or hike through the farm to see bird life including finches, warblers, Galápagos doves, and owls. Head toward the coast and the “lowlands” of Santa Cruz for snorkeling and relaxing on the white beaches. Day trips to other islands can also be arranged, combining the best of the Galápagos’ land with the sea.Request Information
