SUSTAINABILITY

We believe that sustainability should be a choice based on common sense and love of nature. The Galapagos Islands’ fragile ecosystems are affected daily by human presence and tourism. However, there is a welcome trend of responsible thinking that helps balance sustainable development and protection of the environment. At Galapagos Safari Camp we set the standard for responsible practices both at a human and environmental level. Our reforestation program together with our cacao plantation pioneer sustainable conservation efforts.

DAY BY DAY GALAPAGOS TOUR

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, locally-sourced lunch at a farm in the western hills. Take 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 the abundant bird life of the area. End this day at Galapagos Safari Camp with a sunset cocktail followed by dinner.

This island, brimming with life across its rocky surface, hosts blue-footed booby and frigate mating colonies. Land iguanas also frequent the area, seen along the 2-mile trail that loops around the southern section of the island. As we begin our walk, we come across nests of comic-looking blue-footed boobies. Galápagos mockingbirds and yellow warblers are often spotted. As we draw near to the frigate colony, the remarkable birds seem to be nesting in every surrounding tree. Males inflate their red, basketball-sized pouches to attract mates. Back in our dinghy, we head to Mosquera islet, in the channel between Baltra and North Seymour. Here we can find a large sea lion colony, full of pups, bulls and females of different ages.

This beautiful 4 - hour tour starts at 8 a.m. from your hotel with a private transport up to the place known as Salasacas from where we enter the national park until a point where we start a short walk (20 minutes) to the heavenly place. This is o ne of Santa Cruz’s most peaceful and tranquil settings, the 3 kilometers (1.8 miles) of sand that compose El Garrapatero Beach is a tropical paradise. It is about 20 kilometers (12.5 miles) northeast of Puerto Ayora and is well worth the trip. Surrounded by beautiful mangrove trees, the beach is home to an inc redible array of birds, most notably, flamingos and mockingbirds. You can also find marine iguanas, oystercatchers, patillos , Galapagos pelicans amongst the white sands and clear blue water. Return to Pto. Ayora. Free time for lunch. In the afternoon at 2 p.m. we will start our bay tour with a relaxed naviga tion in Academy bay and going towards M osquera , an islet located in front of the island Santa Cruz . Depending of the water conditions , you will have the opportunity for swim ming and snorkel ing with sea lions , colorful fishes, marine iguanas . L ater , we will disembark for a soft hike to explore the shark’s channel . Walking further to Playa de Los Perros, we will meet colonies of marine iguanas while enjoying beautiful and colorful scenery. Back t o Puerto Ayora.

This island is among the oldest in the archipelago, with underwater lava formations dating back 3.9 million years. Its visitor trails are bursting with animal activity. Santa Fe is home to a healthy population of terrestrial iguanas including the Santa Fe yellow iguana, as well as the inky-black marine iguanas. Other residents include Galápagos hawks and blue-footed boobies. Friendly sea lions line the shores and swim besides you when snorkelling, while marine iguanas bask in the sunshine on shoreline rocks, or dart quickly past under the waves. We can also hope to observe sharks, rays, and colourful schools of fish.

TESTIMONY

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our thirtieth wedding anniversary with a trip to the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon rainforest yet were unsure how to manage kosher food and Shabbat. We were lucky enough to find Offir through an internet search, and from the moment we made contact with him, we saw that we would be taken care of. His services extended way beyond finding us a beautiful cruise ship and arranging to send kosher food there and to the lodge in the Amazon. He personally arranged our Shabbat accommodations, set up all hotel/airport transfers and found us a tour guide for the free time between. Offir met us at our hotel the evening we arrived and brought with him additional food and patiently answered all of our questions. He checked up on us during our stay to insure that each detail went smoothly and we felt that he would be there for us if any issues came up. It is hard to imagine how we could have managed this trip without his help. We are so grateful to Offir for all his help in making our vacation the trip of a lifetime!

"Ecuador Nature took care of every detail of our trip. We booked the trip at the last minute and thanks to Offir’s expertise, everything went smoothly. Every accommodation was fantastic and no detail was left to chance. He gave us a lot of personal attention and even arranged for special dietary accommodations for our family. We had the trip of a lifetime!”

Nancy and David (Harrison, NY)


On behalf of Great Grand Nachas & More group, Milton Pfeiffer, president and myself, I would like to express our deep gratitude and appreciation for a wonderful tour you organized for our group in Quito and the Galapagos Islands Last November.

You took care of all our kashrut needs, including preparing kosher kitchens, kosher food of high quality and accommodating all of our needs in a most beneficial and welcoming manner.

We also appreciate your great efforts and the friendliness everything was done on your side, which is not less important. We all had the feeling that there is someone who cares and worries about every detail, from arranging vans for our tours, excellent guides, full touring program, full Shabbat service to early comers up to having a rich and a 5 star service and meal standards in the islands.

Thank you so much for everything. We'll sure use your services in the future and recommend your company to everyone.

Best regards and a lot of success

Michael Tuchfeld
