Set on the edge of an extinct volcanic cone, within the untamed highlands of Santa Cruz Island, the Galapagos Safari Camp is an ode to nature. Teetering high up to overlook the tree canopy and the ocean, this authentic retreat enjoys views of the sunrise and sunset thanks to its clever design. You’ll stay in one of the African-inspired safari tents, hidden away in the forest. Listen to the sound of finches and mockingbirds as you sit out on your terrace, or on the camp’s viewing deck where drinks and fine Ecuadorian meals are served. This is a family-friendly lodge, and both kids and adults alike will be in awe at the endless wonders of the Galapagos Islands.

Rooms at Galapagos Safari Camp

There are just a handful of luxury tents that make up the accommodation at the Galapagos Safari Camp. Each one is propped up on stilts and surrounded by greenery. They come with a private balcony with hammock, electrical sockets, hot showers (powered by solar energy), and double, twin, or triple beds. These glamping hideaways are more spacious than you’d think, and feel deluxe with their hardwood floors, living areas, en suite bathrooms, and French windows that open out to a furnished deck with ocean view. There’s also a Family Suite that has room for 6 guests, decked out with a master bedroom plus two twin rooms, and private bathrooms for each. There’s also a playroom on the lower level.
