Galapagos Safari Camp- Classic Safari

Description

It's one thing visiting the amazing Galapagos Islands, it's another to take this fantastic Classic Safari, during which you combine land activities and boat excursions that take you to beautiful neighbouring islands. This unforgettable journey, seeing rare animals and birds, is filled with opportunities for adventure and relaxation. And you can even choose to have a fully private trip with chartered boat and your own guide or opt for the semi-private version when the boat excursions are shared.

Day 1
In search of the giant tortoise

Welcome to the Galapagos! An English-speaking naturalist guide meets you at the VIP lounge at Baltra Airport to escort you on your excursion of the highlands of Santa Cruz Island. Enjoy a delicious lunch at a farm in the western hills before taking in the area’s natural beauty, pit craters, lava tunnels, and learn more about the Scalesia and Guayabillo forests. At the Tortoise Reserve, share some time in the giant tortoises’ natural habitat, surrounded by abundant bird life. End the day at Galapagos Safari Camp with a sunset cocktail and dinner.

Day 2
Explore neighbouring islands

The next two days of your tour are spent exploring neighbouring islands. After an early breakfast leave the safari camp and board your motorboat to travel to one of the nearby islands which include North Seymour, Bartolomé, Plazas, Santa Fé, Floreana and Isabela. Each island is an endemic treasure to explore and enjoy. The scenery changes with every island you visit and the rare land animals, birds and marine life is a joy to behold. Overnight back at the Safari Camp.

Day 3
Explore neighbouring islands

Another early start today as you travel to more of the neighbouring islands either on your own private boat or one you are sharing with others. Today you will visit the Galapagos Marine Reserve, which is the second largest marine reserve in the world, and you will have the opportunity to swim or snorkel off the boat seeing some of the marine creatures and fish close up. Destinations will change for every cruise and you will be given details once you have booked for a certain date.

Day 4
Experience the east

A morning drive takes you to the eastern part of the island. At 490m above sea level, Cerro Mesa Reserve offers spectacular views of the largest crater on Santa Cruz Island, exotic plants, and seven unique subspecies of finch and the elusive vermilion flycatcher. After lunch explore Garrapatero Beach, with stunning contrasts of mangroves, black lava, white sand, and turquoise water - including a flamingo lagoon. Kayaking and mountain biking are optional activities today.

Day 5
Sunrise walk and departure

Enjoy the serenity that Galapagos Safari Camp has to offer. Relax, walk, or enjoy the sunrise from the observatory before departure to your next destination. After this fun safari trip you can stay on in the Galapagos and make trips to other islands or join other groups for more tours. After making the most of this incredible adventure, why not catch a flight back to Ecuador or another country and see more of South America before beginning your journey back home.

Always good service - never been disappointed. This is my fifth or sixth time I've used DialAFlight. It's so nice to speak to someone who can answer all your questions and know you can ring at any time for support from a pleasant and efficient team member.

We forgot to check In online for the return journey. Assumed we couldn't, only to find all 6 seats apart from 2 dotted all over the plane for flight from Bogota to London.

Don't use Iberia for long flights. It was very poor.

|
Flew to Quito

Gavin always understands exactly what I want, and delivers. Quick, no fuss, good price and the reassurance of actually talking to a real person! Recommended flights were excellent (Avianca) though some people may find the food limited - good quality, but not a great quantity. As I have a small appetite, this wasn't a problem for me. Otherwise, perfect.

Dennis was very efficient and sorted my flights out within an hour. He was on the ball enough to pick up a couple of months later that the airport we were returning from was closing and our travel schedule would need to be amended.

I had a very complex itinierary in South America in just under three weeks and my sales advisor was able to accomodate it all without hesitation. In addition, we needed to contact your offices whilst on holiday and the out of hours service was very prompt and got us the relevant documents immediately. I have returned with amazing memories of a fantastic once in a lifetime trip, thank you.
