We touched down in Balta and we whisked away to the VIP entry at the airport - the perfect way to start out seamless break in the Galapagos. Once our paperwork was done we were met by our naturalist guide and driver who escorted us to the Safari Camp via meeting the giant tortoises over lunch. Chris introducing himself as...

My husband and I travelled to 10 cities over a period of 5 weeks across Europe and South America with concluding it in Galapogous. We wanted to keep it very private and personalised and that's exactly what the safari camp had to offer. With such an impeccable service, it feels like you are being looked after with keep attention and...

I did not feel like I was "camping" at all. The tents have amazing views of the highlands and the ocean below. I really enjoyed relaxing in my hammock after a long day of activities and watching the sun go down to reveal a magnificent sky full of stars/constellations. The service is very attentive and warm - some of the...

I went to the Galapagos knowing it would be a trip of a life time. But the safari camp made it even more special. First of all, the staff is like no other. Katrien Bauters runs the place. And she is one of a kind. She sits down with you when you arrive and really talks to you and LISTENS....

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.
