Serengeti Pioneer Camp
Nestled beneath the rocky kopje in the South Central Serengeti is Serengeti Pioneer Camp.
This region of the Serengeti is a prime destination for thrilling wildlife viewing. With panoramic views of the surrounding rolling plains, the Moru Kopjes and scenic Lake Magadi, the landscape forms an impressive backdrop for exciting game drives through the area. Adding to the appeal of a safari to the South Central Serengeti is that from March to June, Serengeti Pioneer camp is an ideal spot to witness the movements of the Great Migration.
Serengeti Pioneer Camp is a unique mobile tented camp which aims to bring to mind the style and feeling of safaris from bygone eras such as the 1930’s –distinctive in its styling. The 12 en-suite canvas tents provide full comfort for guests with lush furnishings and facilities. The design reflects its “zero-footprint” on the environment and aims to blend seamlessly into the surrounding landcape.The camp has a main dining area where guests can enjoy all of their meals as well as a small pool to cool off in after a day spent on safari before an evening spent under the African sky.
“After a long drive through the savanna landscape we arrived at this little haven hidden away between the rocks which fit in beautifully with nature around it. It has the most amazing views where you can simply see for miles and miles, with spectacular sunrises and sunsets over the landscape.
The camp is situated in an area where you will find some of the best game viewing with resident lions in the areas, and often Leopards are seen. And the wildlife viewing during the Great Migration is fantastic. One factor to note is that it is not a ‘flat’ camp and older guests and people with difficulty in climbing steep stairs will have a problem getting around the camp.
The tented luxury accommodation is of great standard. The tents are large and spacious with all the luxuries that you would need. There is a lovely outside area where you can sit and enjoy your sunset drink in the late afternoon or that first cup of hot coffee when you wake up to watch the sunrise. The tent’s interiors are warm, homely and pay homage to luxury safari tents from the 1930’s. Once inside the room you won’t even think that it is a tent because it is that well put together. One of the highlights is dining under the stars. With the dining tent at the foot of the kopje where you will be able to enjoy all your meals. Sitting next to the camp fire before and after dinner is another highlight with a star filled sky hanging above you and while listening to the wild life in the distance.
The staff at the lodge is amazing. They are so helpful and proud to be working there. The whole experience is memorable and Serengeti Pioneer Camp has one of the nicest atmospheres– warm and great hospitality.”
