Ecuador Safari Holidays

Safaris in Equador are some of the best in the world; with the incredible wildlife, dramatic scenery and biodiversity of the Equadorian Amazon Basin, the magnificent highland cloud forests and the spectacular Galapagos Islands - that strange and ancient paradise of species - it is easy to see why. These incredible regions make Ecuador an unmissable stop on your tour through South America.
The Galapagos Islands are one of the world’s foremost wildlife viewing destinations.  It was here that Darwin developed his theory of evolution, and you will clearly understand why when you safari here for yourself.  The abundance of wildlife on these islands is truly extraordinary.  On land, you might find yourself face to face with a 200-year old tortoise, witness the energetic mating dance of the blue-footed booby, spy on prehistoric-looking marine iguanas and lava lizards or watch playful penguins interacting.  In the water you can kayak, swim, snorkel and dive with fur seals, sea turtles, manta rays dolphins, whales and hammerhead sharks. This is ultimate safari land.

Where to stay

There are some quiet eco-lodges on the Galapagos Islands, but we recommend you that travel and stay on one of the boats that we list below, for your optimum safari experience.  This way, you can spend a few days travelling on sea and land in order to cover a greater number of islands.
