Galapagos Safari Camp
Highlands, 25 km from Puerto Ayora (Santa Cruz (Indefatigable), Galapagos)
Nine luxurious safari-style tents with views over the Pacific and western and northern Galapagos islands. Infinity pool and fine restaurant in the central lodge. Altitude is 450m.
Relax, admire the views and local wildlife. Giant tortoises are often found nearby. Riding available locally. Various packages available that can include local tours or boat trips to nearby islands.
Tents are spacious (27 square metres), have electricity, en-suite bathrooms, and balconies. Owners' house (not a tent!) also available as a family suite, with lovely views from a wraparound veranda.
Stephanie Bonham-Carter and Michael Mesdag have realised their dream! Perfect for a rest before or after a Galapagos cruise, or as part of a land-based Galapagos visit. Real attention to detail.
When to go
Warmest (and wettest) December to June, garua (mist) season (September to November) tends to be more benign than elsewhere due to the local microclimate.
Client comments and reviews
The Safari Camp was a brilliant suggestion and we enjoyed it both ends of our visit to the Galapagos. It was real glamping with the most tastefully designed tents and main building. Stephanie and Michael were very welcoming and absolutely charming as were all their staff. Here we experienced the best food throughout the whole of our stay in Ecuador. They had a brilliant couple of young chefs who were keen to experiment on new combinations of food and the result was absolutely delicious. We would certainly recommend this to anyone visiting the Galapagos. - CH, Feb 2013
