We are so impressed by our experience at Galapagos Safari Camp. We are a family of four and our two children, 10 and 12, stayed in the tent next to us (about 20 steps away). The tents are spacious, clean, beautifully set up, and have good plumbing and reliable hot water and pressure in the showers. They are beautifully equipped...

This was our first time to the Galapagos Islands, and we opted not to do a sea excursion but still wanted to see as much as we could while spending the nights on land. After a few hours of research online, the Galapagos Safari Camp kept coming up with the highest reviews for experiencing all of what the Galapagos Islands...

We stayed for 5 nights at the Galapagos Safari Camp in April, 2017 It was a wonderful experience! The camp itself was beautiful - very well appointed and comfortable. The main building was just amazing.. the wooden furniture from Bali, the fireplace, and the beautiful door from Goa (with Ganesha on top!) at the entrance were all a pleasure to...

I didn't want to spend a week on a boat but did want to explore several islands, so when my travel agent (Jena at Latin Excursions) recommended the Safari Camp I immediately knew it was for us. It is about a 30 minute drive up into the hills of Santa Cruz, in a beautiful and serene setting. Gorgeous sunset and...

We recently spent 4 nights at the Galapagos Safari Camp- while the facilities are okay (if you've been to a 3 star resort in the Caribbean you've seen better), the service and the food were TERRIBLE especially considering the price- ~$1800 per night for my wife and I. I can't begin to explain how awful the dinners were- examples include...

Galapagos Safari Camp is an oasis in the highlands of Santa Cruz in the Galapagos. Everything from the views to the lodge, the tents, the pool and the amazing food is beautiful and luxurious.
