We had 2 fabulous days here. It reminded me of safari tent camps we've stayed at in Kenya. Don't think you'll be roughing it though. This is a beautiful facility with a wonderful breakfast and dinner. It is a bit of a drive to the city and snorkeling, etc. but well worth it.

This place is not to be missed. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service is second to none. The food is first rate and the wine list is quite acceptable for the location. The tents are comfortable and in excellent condition.

This is a very beautiful spot in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island. Modeled after the luxurious camps in East Africa, this is a real treat. It is expensive, and you get what you pay for: peaceful surroundings with superb service. The staff are so friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. In addition, they work with guides they have selected for excellence, so... More

The Safari Galapagos Camp was the perfect way to end my stay in the Galapagos Islands. I stayed for four nights in late June 2014. The Camp and all of its luxury are quite similar to the luxury safari camps in Africa. Each individual unit is elevated on stilts and is well equipped with a large sturdy canvas tent, electricity,...

The Safari Camp was recommended to us by Ecoventura, the cruise company we went with and we were so glad they did! We wanted a few days to relax and this hotel was the perfect destination to pamper ourselves and splurge a little. We spent the day swimming in their infinity pool, reading in the hammock with a cocktail in... More

We stayed three nights at the Galapagos Safari Camp. We were hosted by Katrien who hails from Belgium and offers outstanding service and doles out recommendations with the discretion of a top notch concierge. We arrived after lunch hour but were immediately served the first of many gourmet meals which rival any of the finer restaurants in our hometown Chicago.... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed here for a week in April and had a fantastic time. Our day trips were organized through the lodge as well and there wasn't much we would do differently. They cater to whatever your needs are, from your trip specifications to your dietary requirements. Breakfasts and dinner were all scrumptious to say the least.... More

After we had done a wonderful trip around the Galápagos Islands on a live-aboard boat, we wanted to have a few days to relax and explore a bit more of Santa Cruz Island before heading home. Galapagos Safari Camp was absolutely perfect, and we are so glad we spent the extra three nights there. I absolutely recommend it, and suggest... More

We usually stay in simple family hotels, but we knew we'd have a long journey to the Galapagos so we splashed out and spent our first two nights at the wonderful Galapagos Safari Camp. No regrets! It's a magical place. You step through the front door—welcomed with a perfect glass of fresh strawberry juice after many hours of travel—as if... More
