Serengeti pioneer camp romantic dining with a view 2400

Serengeti Pioneer Camp

Discover Serengeti Pioneer Camp

Serengeti Pioneer Camp is a stunning gateway to the annual great migration and the Big 5, offering luxury accommodation and phenomenal game viewing. From camp you can drink in captivating views of Lake Magadi and the Moru Kopjes while relaxing under canvas to the sounds of the African wilds. Pioneer Camp aims to be green and leave little footprint on the land all the while bringing you as close to nature as possible.

Possessing a distinct colonial air, the camp is reminiscent of the mobile camps of the 1930's: transporting guests back in time to the safaris of yesteryear. There are only 12 tents on offer at this exclusive camp. In the evening, having spent the day exploring, watch the sunset sitting out the front of your tent and enjoy fine dining under star filled skies. The dining tent is usually where the camp's delicious meals are served but for a slightly more adventurous culinary affair lunch in the bush is a must do experience.
