We travel to the Galápagos to be fully immersed in their otherworldliness, completely surrounded by their fascinating wildlife. It’s now possible to have just that kind of experience while spending nights on terra firma.
At the new Galápagos Safari Camp, you may feel like just another cloud-forest creature—perching in a hammock, dillydallying alongside tortoises, twittering with mockingbirds, snugging down in your airy canvas tent—were it not for the delectable cuisine, gracious hospitality, and infinity pool. Modeled after Africa’s superlative safari camps, this Galápagos gem nestles on Santa Cruz Island far from the Puerto Ayora hubbub.
By day, expert naturalist guides (who are more like friends) introduce you to some of the archipelago’s geologic, floral, and faunal wonders. You island hop between wildlife extravaganzas aboard the sleek 40-foot Narel, snorkel with tropical fish, kayak above manta rays, wander among lava lizards, and can even explore by mountain bike. When you’re ready to put your feet up, ease into a chair on the veranda and gaze at the isle-dotted horizon.
If that’s not adventure enough, this journey is easily combined with extraordinary private extensions elsewhere in Latin America. For more information, give us a call.
