At the Heart of the Galapagos Archipelago
The Galapagos Safari Camp is located on Santa Cruz Island, in the middle of the expansive Galapagos archipelago.. It’s one of the most diverse islands of all, with volcanic heights swathed in forest in complete contrast to its drier coastline.
The Galapagos Islands belong to the Republic of Ecuador and are located 600 miles / 1000 km off the coast of Ecuador in South America.
The Highlands of Santa Cruz
Our camp is ideally placed to make the most of the island’s diversity, bringing you into contact with all of its ecosystems with ease. We are a fascinating 45-minute boat-ride-and-drive from Baltra airport, and 30 minutes from the port of Puerto Ayora (home to the Charles Darwin Research Station, shops, restaurants and local life).
Tucked away on the border of the National Park, we’re far from the crowds, immersed in nature, and minutes from hopping on a small boat to explore nearby uninhabited islands.
How to Reach Galapagos Safari Camp
The journey to our Camp begins in either Quito or Guayaquil, with an hour-and-a-half flight to the airport on Baltra Island (once the United States’ military base during the Second World War).
Having been greeted by your guide and made your way through the VIP Lounge and Galapagos National Park checks, you’ll travel by car to the Itabaca Channel for a short hop by boat across to the northern shore of Santa Cruz Island.
From there, it’s a 30-minute drive up from the arid coastal ecosystems and into the cloudforests of the highlands, home to intriguing giant daisy trees, called Scalesia, and many other species.
