Galapagos Safari Camp is a luxury tented camp nestled in the wild highlands of Santa Cruz Island. The camp offers an authentic inland experience with stunning views over the Pacific Ocean and the National Park.
The Classic Safari has a combination of land activities and boat excursions that take you to beautiful neighbouring islands. This unforgettable journey is filled with opportunities for adventure and relaxation.
On arrival to Baltra Island airport, you will be met by a bilingual naturalist guide who will take you to a farm in the highlands of Santa Cruz. Here, you will enjoy a delicious lunch locally sourced at a farm in the western hills.
After lunch, you will take a complete tour of the highlands. You will get a chance to explore the area and see different types of vegetation, walk around pit craters, through lava tunnels and get acquainted with endemic Scalesia and Guayabillo forests. At the Tortoise Reserve, you will observe the emblematic Giant Tortoises in their natural habitat and the abundant bird life of the highlands. Your tour will end at Galapagos Safari Camp where you can enjoy a sunset cocktail followed by dinner.
Today, have an early morning and take the motor vessel to one of the neighbouring islands: North Seymour, Bartolome, Plazas, Santa Fe, Floreana or Isabela. Each island is an endemic treasure to explore and enjoy.
Today you can visit The Galapagos Marine Reserve. This paradise is the second largest reserve in the world; you will be able to snorkel off the boat and experience the richness of the aquatic species. Alternatively, if you are scuba certified you can replace one or both day trips with diving.
In the morning you will be driven to the eastern part of the island. At 490 metres above sea level, Cerro Mesa offers dramatic views, has the largest crater on Santa Cruz and numerous endemic plants as well as up to 7 subspecies of finches and the Vermillion Flycatcher. After lunch, you will visit Garrapatero, a pristine beach where the contrast of mangroves, black lava, white sand and turquoise water, in addition to the buzzing coastal bird life and the small pink flamingo lagoon is sensational. Kayaking and mountain biking is available.
On your last day you can tour the farm at your leisure or enjoy the sunrise from the camps viewpoint before your airport transfer.
