Galapagos Safari Camp
- Galapagos Safari Camp is a unique, luxury tented camp, nestled in the wild highlands of Santa Cruz Island, close to the giant tortoise reserve.
- Very much an off the beaten path location, part of a 55-hectare farm, in harmony with nature. Galapagos Safari Camp was inspired by the magic of African safari camps, and represents a new concept for Galapagos Islands travel.
- Services include nine luxury tents (27 sq metres), with private bathrooms, and one family suite for up to 6 people. Well kept social areas include gardens and an infinity pool.
- Enjoy wonderful vistas over the Pacific Ocean from the viewing terrace, as well as views of the western & northern islands of Isabela, Santiago, Pinzon, Baltra, Rabida, Guy Fawkes & Daphne.
- Galapagos Safari Camp represents a wonderful alternative to the normal Galapagos cruise and island hopping packages.

What Our Clients Say
Michael B, U.K
We stayed at Galapagos Safari Camp for 4 nights. We were the only guests at that particular time. The service was exceptional. All of the staff were outstanding. The nature of the accommodation means it’s not going to be the most comfortable, but if you go with that in mind, you won’t be disappointed
Deanna & Mark, U.S
We (me, my husband, our 15-year old daughter, and 12-year old son) stayed four nights in the family suite and had the best time! The kids loved having their own bedroom and bathroom, and we loved that we were all in one building. The view from the private deck was unbelievable!
Susan W, U.S
Lucky us to stay in this superbly managed and unique place! I will always remember waking up in my tent and seeing the beautiful water in the distance. Also the food is AMAZING. I want to go back!!
