Galapagos Safari Camp
Galápagos Safari Camp is an exquisite property which follows the example of Africa's luxury safari camps to offer true comfort under canvas.
The exquisite Galápagos Safari Camp, perfect for total relaxation, is based upon the model of Africa's top-of-the-range safari camps, offering true comfort under canvas.
The main lodge, built from volcanic stone, sits astride a ridge with panoramic views of the straits and volcanoes of Isabela island beyond. The nine luxury tents occupy their own vast wooden platforms and each has a balcony, bedroom and separate bathroom. Inside, the décor is a marriage of understated contemporary style and the rustic ambience that lends the camp its sense of adventure.
There's a small infinity pool, horses or mountain bikes for hire, and informative guided exploratory walks to be enjoyed within the grounds. Nearby, you can explore the island's unique lava tunnels, the ceilings of which soar to the height of a Gothic cathedral. Giant tortoises roam wild in the surrounding scrub and grasslands.

A holiday in Ecuador/the Galapagos is a once in a life time experience. A four day cruise whilst being an excellent 'overview' is just not long enough. Encourage all your customers to take the longest possible cruise.DW, Lingfield

The Galápagos Islands were out of this world.DJ, Chesterfield
The sealions were brilliant fun and the pups so cute, and so close. All the wildlife was great and seeing it all up close as nothing is afraid of humans, was amazing.KH, Weybridge

The highlight was always going to be the Galápagos and it lived up to our expectations. It is a unique place and unlike our last visit we came away with hundreds of photographs to remind us of the trip.NW, Wells
The Galápagos - just breathtaking - walking in woodland with wild giant tortoise grazing in clearings, watching wild land iguanas amble through long grasses, peering at eye level into the nests of red footed boobies, watching penguins and sea lions hunting fish whilst snorkelling, and as a finale, watching huge sharks circling in the boat lights during our final evening meal.JW, Newcastle
Impossible to choose between the Galápagos and Easter Island - both are magical, special places.SM, Wandsworth
The Galapagos animals, scenery and sea were out of this world, just fabulousCH, Epsom
The trip around the Galápagos was spectacular and I have never experienced anything like it before.LB, Enfield
A couple of days in the Galapagos when we didn't see any other people. Intimacy of swimming with sealions, turtles & being chased in the water by a flightless cormorant!TC, St Albans
The most memorable experiences were walking in woodland with wild giant tortoise grazing in clearings, watching wild land iguanas amble through long grasses, peering at eye level into the nests of red footed boobies, watching penguins and sea lions hunting fish whilst snorkelling, and as a finale, watching huge sharks circling in the boat lights during our final evening meal.JW, Newcastle
It's very difficult to pick out one thing. Seeing the animals everywhere we went was amazing. We fell in love with the sea-lions. I loved the walk up to the view over Pinnacle Rock and then being on the beach by the rock afterwards. Seeing a white tipped shark from the beach was something I never expected.NR, Swindon
The Galápagos Islands were something else- quite outstanding for the wonderful wildlife and abundant sea life while snorkelling.CP
The Galápagos were above expectation – the best thing we have done.DL, Dulwich

Our time on the Galápagos Islands was unique to us, the wildlife was fabulous, we enjoyed every minute of it.BT, Ware
