We stayed at the Galapagos Safari Camp for only 2 nights. Wished we could stay for the entire summer. The place, staff, Katrien (General Manager) were all amazing. Each tent was well appointed, very comfortable. It had all the modern comfort but set in a natural, rustic environment. We got the best of both worlds. Best place to unwind.

Take the Santa Cruz highway to the end then keep going. No discos, no traffic, no stores just peace and beauty. One thing that is not well understood in rating properties is that the most over the top physical properties can't get a 5 star rating unless the service is up to par. The service at Safari Camp is beyond...

With Katrien at the helm of this luxury camp, the service is flawless. She leads a great team of staff and goes out of her way to make her guests feel like welcomed family. The tents are comfortable, clean, and spacious enough. If you want more privacy and to be further away from neighbors, ask for T9. If you want...

This is an eight year old luxury facility and don't let the word "camp" deceive you. The only suggestion of a camp is that most of the rooms are tented but that does not mean that you would be roughing it in any sense. Because of the number of beds we needed we stayed in the "family suite" which was...
