A Galápagos Safari
Custom Travel | 8 Days
- Meet blue-footed boobies, centenarian tortoises, and seagoing iguanas
- Sleep in safari-inspired luxury tents on 135 private, mist-cooled acres
- Flexibility: Explore bay to cloud forest by foot, bike, kayak, and boat
- Learn from top-notch naturalist guides and savor delicious cuisine
This unusual adventure fully immerses you in the fascinating wildlife and other-worldliness of the Galápagos while keeping your nights comfortably on terra firma. Based from a sensational safari-style camp in the Santa Cruz highlands, you may feel like just another cloud-forest creature—perching in a hammock, dillydallying alongside tortoises, twittering with finches—were it not for the delectable cuisine, gracious hospitality, and infinity pool. Expert naturalists share geologic, floral, and faunal wonders as you island hop by boat, stroll beaches with sunning sea lions, snorkel with spotted eagle rays, and mountain bike to lava tunnels.
We loved almost everything about the trip. The Galápagos Safari Camp was just tremendous. I would highly recommend that to anyone as opposed to five days on a boat. The actual tents were so much fun, and the team took such good care of us. We also really bonded with the other people on the trip, so that worked out very well.– Kathleen L.
