GALAPAGOS – LAND BASED SAFARIS
Inspired by the stylish tented safari camps of Africa but located roughly 620 miles (998 km) from the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Safari Camp (GSC) is perched in the wild highlands of Santa Cruz Island, with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Galapagos National Park. Giant tortoises roam freely beneath the raised tent platforms and a variety of native birds, including Darwin’s famous finches, flock in the surrounding canopy of endemic trees. GSC is family-owned by Stephanie and Michael Mesdag who have raised their children in the camp and welcome guests of all ages like family friends. A stay at the Galapagos Safari Camp is fully customized and flexible. Booking options include an all-inclusive land-based safari with excursions to surrounding islands, sometimes in conjunction with a shorter boat cruise or as a stand-alone add-on after a cruise, permitting awe-struck guests a few days of relaxation before returning to the mainland.
