South America Galapagos Islands Land Tour

Galapagos Safari

On this customizable Galapagos Safari Camp land adventure, experience the Galapagos Islands in natural habitat while surrounded by breathtaking views and memorable encounters with wildlife, all in discreet luxury and at your own pace. Galapagos Safari Camp is a unique, family-owned property inspired by the magic of African safari camps that provides a customizable way to experience the Galapagos Islands, whether as a standalone tour or as an extension for independent Galapagos cruises.

Bordering the National Park in the Santa Cruz Highlands, the luxury tented camp is seamlessly integrated with its surroundings. Guests are immersed in the wild highlands while enjoying an attentive team with private guides that ensure comfort and safety. Possible activities include surfing; visits to a sugar cane plantation, coffee farm and fish market; and beach time with possible private picnics. Upon arrival, the staff is ready to listen and create experiences that suit guests’ personal interests.

The core model trip, the 5-day Classic Safari, is a combination of land activities and a boat excursion, all of which reveal iconic marine sites at one of the beautiful neighboring Galapagos islands of North Seymour, Bartolomé, Plazas, Santa Fé, Floreana or Isabela. The 5-day Dive Safari is designed specifically for dive enthusiasts and includes two dives per day as well as a land excursion upon arrival. Possible dive sites include Gordon Rocks (Floreana), Cousins Rock (North Seymour), Bartolomé, Mosquera Islet or Daphne Islet. Learn more about Galapagos diving.

The 6-day Family Safari, one of our Galapagos family tours, is diverse in activities and engaging educational experiences that complement the needs for parents to relax and children to be entertained. Activities like fishing adventures, picking coffee beans at an organic coffee plantation, Kid’s Club creations and explorations on North Seymour, South Plazas, Santa Fe or Bartolomé islands are perfect for the whole family, with the option for parents to leave children in capable hands. Many of the knowledgeable guides have their own families and understand the dynamics of children and the need for flexibility, patience and downtime. 

Finally, a 3-day Active or Relaxing safari is a great extension to take before or after your independent Galapagos cruise. The Active itinerary offers a menu of select daily guided activities while the Relaxing itinerary simply provides time to rest and enjoy this special property. Both options include the same transfers and meals as their longer counterparts.
