Galapagos Safari Camp
A trip to the Galapagos Islands is a once in a lifetime vacation so you’re going to want to make sure everything is perfect. The Galapagos Safari Camp, located on the Galapagos island of Santa Cruz, offers luxury and excitement in an environment unlike any other.
The Galapagos Safari Camp consists of a number of lavish tents "safari style", equipped with plush beds and modern facilities. The tents allow guests to feel fully immersed in nature without having to compromise their comfort. In the evenings a fresh breeze blows through the netted fabric of the tents walls, carrying with it the faint sound of birds chirping in the trees.
Just a few metres from the tents is the main lodge of the camp. Here, guests can convene in the evening around the fireplace to share stories about their day. There is also a library for those who want to indulge in quiet reading and a lounge for relaxing.
If you’ve just returned from a day of exploring the highlands of Santa Cruz island and are in need of a hearty meal, the onsite restaurant has you covered. The camp prides itself on it farm to table cuisine, which combines Ecuadorian staples with international dishes for a delectable fusion extravaganza. There is also a bar at the camp, where guests can treat themselves to a sundowner after dinner.
The main selling point of the Galapagos Safari Camp is its range of services to help you design the perfect Galapagos trip. The Classic Safari option that the camp offers includes spotting giant tortoises; visiting some of the nearby islands; and hiking around the eastern side of Santa Cruz Island. The tour is a great introduction to the Galapagos Islands and will allow travellers to see all kinds of exotic flora and fauna.
Those travelling with children can make the most of the Family Safari option. This tour takes families all over Santa Cruz Island by bike and kayak and gives you the chance to see marine iguanas, white-tip reef sharks and giant tortoises. The itinerary also includes some fishing with local fishermen; visiting the Charles Darwin Research Centre and the chance to discover one of the uninhabited islands of the Galapagos Archipelago.
A special Scuba Diving Safari is also available, designed especially for dive enthusiasts. Scuba diving in Galapagos is considered to be one of the world´s best. This program includes two dives per day and a land excursion on arrival.
Tours often include the chance to take a walk through Puerto Ayora, the main town on Santa Cruz Island. If the tour you are on does not include this then it is easy to do so in your free time. The biggest town in the archipelago, it is nice to spend a few hours there and feel like you are back in civilisation. In the evenings, guests return to the Galapagos Safari Camp where they can unwind and relax before more activities the next day.
The Galapagos Safari Camp is a great lodge option to combine with a Galapagos cruise. Many travellers like to stay here either before, or after their cruise to get more out of the islands and to simply enjoy the panoramic views of the pacific ocean before heading back home to reality. Either side of your tour, you may well want to see what else Santa Cruz Island has to offer. Fortunately, there is no shortage of things to do on this popular island. Travellers can easily fill their days heading to one of the beautiful and accessible beaches or delving inland and hiking through the rugged highlands that dominate the island’s centre.
