Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room or outside on the veranda. Every meal is carefully prepared and the presentation is exquisite. The chef has both local and international cuisine in his repertoire, and features plenty of fresh local produce.Delicious vegetarian and fish meals can also be provided.
There are two common areas with stone fireplaces, where you can read or enjoy a cocktail along with complimentary water, tea, coffee, and snacks. The outside fireplace is also a good place to gaze the stars at night.
An infinity pool is tucked amidst a forest of native trees, which is a perfect place for a refreshing dip.
The farm has an abundance of wildlife, ranging from birds and local species of trees, to the giant tortoises. The site also has an observation platform or a sunset deck, which is a wonderful, large, raised platform with a great view to the north and northwest. It is a superb place to have a glass or two of wine with your loved ones.
The site operates in harmony with its environment. For example it collects water and sells the extra water back to the local business.
In the near future the site will start a cacao farm which will grows high quality coco beans. Nearby there is an organic coffee and sugarcane plantation which are very proud of their artisan ways.

The safari camp is in the property of a 130 acre farm in the high lands of Santa Cruz Island.
On the farm you can spend time walking, bird watching and spotting visiting tortoises.
The area near the farm includes attractions ranging from a tortoise reserve to lava tunnels and a volcanic crater. Walking, cycling or horseback riding can be arranged upon request.
The lower part of Santa Cruz features white sandy beaches where you can snorkel, dive, kayak, surf or swim.
The location of the camp is central to all areas of the Island. The activities on the island of Santa Cruz include seeing the huge tortoises, visiting the Charles Darwin Station and kayaking in Tortuga Bay. The marine life in Tortuga Bay is astounding, you may encounter dozens of sharks, sea turtles, manta rays of several varieties, marine iguanas and maybe even a blue footed booby.
There are daily organized land and boat excursions and also safari packages with private guides on shared boat trips to the nearby islands, like Bartolomé, Seymour and Plazas. Also worth mentioning is that the crew prepares impressive home-cooked lunches each day from scratch in the tiny galley of the boat on those island excursions. The hand-picked guides are very knowledgeable.
Bartolomé Island offers a nice short hike to the top of the old volcano where you will be treated to stunning views. There are also some gorgeous beaches on both sides of the island.
Both Plazas Island and North Seymour Island are nice nesting sites for animals such as frigates, boobies, land iguanas, and also sea lions and marine iguanas on the shore.
