Knowmad Travelers: Galapagos Marvels All To Yourself

“Getting vaccines in February and March made it possible for us to travel now! We are so happy that we went ahead with the trip this year because so few people were there.

…Safari Camp was wonderful. They gave us a cooking lesson. Food fantastic! Blue Paradise was perfect, only 12 people and an incredible guide! Peter made our trip interesting. A wealth of knowledge! We were the only boat for 5 1/2 days!!

Paradise to ourselves. I would suggest for others to go now before the rest of the world opens up!” – Norma & Jim
