Experience The Nostalgia Of A Bygone Era At Pioneer Camp On The Serengeti Plains
Serengeti Pioneer Camp is themed after the original safari camps of the 1930s, a nostalgic era that excites and interests a few.
Located in the central region of the Serengeti within an area called the Moru Kopjes, an area where one gets to view the great migration but also the "Big 5".
Built on the slopes of a kopje, the camp offers guests wonderful views out over the surrounding National Park teeming with wildlife and birdlife. The views are up there with the best that the Serengeti and Masai Mara can offer.
Serengeti Pioneer Camp is ultra-stylish in an old-fashioned style, and attention to detail is excellent all the way from the main guest areas to the private suites. An exceptional camp by any stretch of the imagination, perfect for small families, couples and single travellers alike.
Serengeti Pioneer Camp offers travellers 12 tented suites (including 1 family suite) that have been positioned far enough apart to ensure good levels of privacy. A covered viewing deck leads into the main bedroom with either a king-size or two queen-size beds, and to the back of the suite is the en-suite bathroom with a flushing toilet, show and basin.
The suites (and the camp) are decorated and furnished in a 1930's style with a neutral colour scheme blended with dark wooden furniture.
A two-bedroomed family suite is available for those on a Serengeti safari with the family in tow.
- Queen size mattress beds with mosquito nets
- Indoor Lounge chairs
- Canvas-covered awning with outdoor furniture
- In-room safe
- Personal room attendant
- Hot water 24/7
The main dining tent is the main area of the camp from which one gets the chance to taste the varying and delicious menus for all palates over either breakfast, lunch or dinner.
A selected premium wine list is available, and so too is a good beer and alcohol selection, as well as cool drinks.
Other dining options when on safari at Serengeti Pioneer Camp;
- Campfire dining under the African stars
- Private and intimate dining options (bush or private deck options)
