Glamping | Galápagos Safari Camp, Galápagos Island, Ecuador

October 1, 2009

Galapagos Safari Camp-Galapagos Island-ECUADOR 5The fact that Galápagos Island is among the most coveted places in the world to see nature at its best, is well known. The other fact that many experienced travelers realize is the lack of accommodation on the island, resorting to a boat-stay which is the main means of traveling to the island. This of course is deliberate, and for a good reason, to ensure that Galápagos remains the same and to avoid any unnecessary impact from overdevelopment.

So here’s a novel choice of accommodation on the island, glamping! Galápagos Safari Camp is a new hotel breed, more commonly found in African Safaris.

Galápagos Safari Camp is a 55-hectare farm in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island bordering the national park, 30 minutes from the sea. The farm is rich in birdlife with finches, warblers, mockingbirds, galapagos doves, egrets and owls — tortoises also make frequent visits. The farm has many local species of trees, such as scalesia, guayabillo, and palo santo which are rapidly regaining a foothold after years of cattle farming.

The camp has 8 luxury safari tents perched on a hill, providing comfort and privacy in the wilderness. All tents have a balcony with views of the park and the ocean — they are spacious, attractively decorated, and each has a private bathroom, with hot shower and toilet.
