We stayed at the Safari Camp for 3 nights after a three night cruise. It was a really nice change being in the highlands and the lodge and our tent had a great outlook over the island and sea and distant islands. The tents are comfortable - beds are a little firm but the staff are happy to add a... More

My wife and I took our 3 kids on a trip to the Galápagos Islands and had to decide between going on a cruise or staying on land and doing daily excursions. Because of a number of reasons, including having sons that are 6'7" and 6'8", we decided that the ship idea wouldn't be the best. We are glad we... More

We decided to make day trips out to explore the Galapagos. This hotel was one of the best reviewed and unique kind of stay which is why we decided to spend our time in the Galapagos here. Since your room is a tent there is not much luxury (to me at least) as others mentioned. The bed was comfortable, I... More

We stayed at the Galapagos Safari Camp for 4 nights in April this year and wish we would have stayed there the entire time in Galapagos. The setting is beautiful, peaceful and quiet, relaxing and the staff led by Katrien is courteous and catered to our every whim. They took care of our every need from first aid, travel plans,...

The Camp is a delight situated privately in the hills, The tents were luxury (similiar to our African experiences) The FOOD was absolutely the best, fresh and prepared by the staff. Katrien Bauters the manager is a delightful person, friendly, organized and a great ambassador of the Galapagos, she looked after our every need, coordinated our activities and excursions and...

This is a fantastic option for those who wish to explore Galapagos through day-trips instead of a cruise. My wife and I don't do well on boats cause of sea sickness so this resort was ideal. We also like the freedom to plan and move about as we wished which we would not have had as much on a boat.... More

We spent two nights here; one before our cruise when travelling in a Group with Inca travel and one as independent travellers the night after our cruise. The latter experience was vastly inferior to the former and pretty poor value for money, given the £420 paid through our travel agent for Half Board excl lunch, especially as the breakfast was...

We constantly monitor client satisfaction, take feedback very seriously and act upon it. From our inception we strive to satisfy our visitors and have gone out of our way to make sure their experience with us is... More

Galapagos Safari Camp brings the African-style luxury safari experience to The Enchanted Islands and leaves its guests fulfilled in more ways than one. The nine spacious tents are very comfortable, with a welcoming veranda, wooden floors, firm but comfortable beds and full-size baths -- including flush toilets and hot showers. The camp's setting in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island,... More

Everything from Katrien's warm welcome to Wilson's magical food make this destination a true joy to visit. Excellent facilities and stunning scenery make you believe you have hit the jackpot! If you make it to the Galapagos then go see the highlands and enjoy the Camp!

We stayed here for 2 nights following a hectic cruise and loved every minute of it. It was wonderful to relax with the only sounds being the birds singing. The tent was well equipped with a terrace that had a view to the sea. Katrien, the manager, was amazing from the first greeting to everything that she arranged so professionally.... More
