Set in the highlands away from Santa Cruz's waterfront crowds the unique Galápagos Magic Tented Camp has raised safari tents and elevated tree houses with gorgeous views.

Set in the highlands of the Galápagos island Santa Cruz (and away from the waterfront crowds), this unique property has six raised safari tents and four elevated tree houses with gorgeous views.

The lodge has an open-air fire, where fresh dinners are prepared, and for a truly unique and even eerie experience you can have a pre- or post-dinner drink in lava tunnels in the subterranean Lava Lounge.

The comfortable walk-in double safari tents have their own private bathrooms. The more basic screened tree houses are equipped with a flush toilet and a basin with running water, as well as a small deck and bench. Twin beds are provided and windows allow you to watch the stars.

Giant tortoises roam here throughout much of the year, and you might see a handful slowly moving through the grounds or dotting the meadow. Galápagos tortoises are probably the best loved creatures of all the endemic species of the archipelago. But they do need a bit of help to flourish. Galápagos Magic has launched an initiative to put aside 12 hectares of its property to create and restore the ideal habitat for tortoises to thrive; planting trees and creating water drinking pools. There’s an interpretive centre dedicated to the tortoises and an interpretive trail around the reserve for visitors.
