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.

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,...
