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

Staying here is a special experience. The hostess is warm, welcoming, and helpful. Tent accommodations are classy and well designed. The food is locally sourced, and creatively prepared. There is a lovely pool, walks around the property, and a spacious lobby with WiFi access and comfortable chairs.

This resort is a nice choice if you want to go off the beaten path from the cattle call bus and boat tours to the galapagos. A quiet reprieve nestled in nature away from the fray. You will feel your blood pressure go down as you commute from the town into the wilderness ;). the drive there is half the... More

The Safari Camp was not our first choice in accommodations but we found ourselves here after the boat we were to be on broke. While working out the details of our trip the months prior, our tour guide had learned I was very picky when it came to lodging. I was planning this trip for a group of friends and... More

I stayed there with my girlfriend on our last night in the Galapagos, once we has been beached-out, and we were extremely happy to have splurged. The lot is far away from the main road-- a few minutes of driving really-- and the setting is absolutely beautiful. If only for the fact that this food was great-- a rare experience... More

A friend and I stayed here as part of a tour with the GeoEx company. We found the service to be excellent and the food was very good. We definitely did not go hungry. The location was a bit remote and it was quite far from town - this added time to our excursions each day and it made the... More

I was so lucky this June as I was able to stay in Safari Camp Galapagos. It was difficult to make up my mind to either stay on land or on board a boat for the week. In my opinion I made the right choice. Safari Camp had it all including the best guide and driver you could ask for.... More

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.
