Galapagos Safari Camp was built out of passion. Michael & Stephanie Mesdag stumbled upon the property while visiting the islands. They gave up their former life in Europe to build a dream that was conceived while up in a tree looking at the mesmerizing views where the lodge now sits. After many years of travelling, they found a place where they rooted their life; it reflects their passion and love for travel. As a result, GSC encapsulates their conception of aesthetic harmony with nature, every detail has a personal touch and every element has a history.
The Tented Camp borders the National Park in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island’s “transition zone” and is close to the tortoise reserve. The 55-hectare farm is on a ridge with magnificent views over the Pacific Ocean & the famous western & northern islands of Isabela, Santiago, Pinzón, Baltra, Rabida, Guy Fawkes & Daphne
The stylish central lodge is perched on a hill with panoramic views from its spacious veranda. The open-plan interior draws the eye to the islands scattered on the horizon below. Relax in the lounge and bar, with their cozy fireplace. Savor the local and international dishes created by our creative chef with home-grown produce in the dining room.
Nine luxury tents are located closely below the central lodge. They are erected above the ground on wooden platforms and are sheltered by three protective layers, one specifically for the sun, another one for the rain and an inner sealed canvass shell forms the bedrooms. Their interiors are comfortable and spacious (27m2). The custom-made furniture was designed with comfort, practicality and elegance in mind. Twin beds join to become one comfortable queen, there are cupboards, a writing desk and a fan/heater for temperature control. We can also add a sofa bed for children under 12. The en-suite bathrooms are tastefully designed with hot power showers and flush toilets. All tents have a large balcony with a hammock and chairs from which to take in the enchanting view.

The infinity pool is an ideal place for guests to enjoy the nature and tranquility while cooling down on hot days.
The farm has an abundance of birdlife with finches, warblers, mockingbirds, Galapagos doves, egrets and owls—tortoises also frequently potter between the tents. As a result of our conservation work, many local species of trees, such as scalesia, guayabillo, and palo santo, are rapidly regaining a foothold after years of cattle farming.
