Review

Located in the southern centre of the Serengeti, Pioneer Camp is the latest addition to the Elewana portfolio and is a superb option for those that would like a little more luxury while still experiencing a luxury tented camp. Featuring some of the best views we have ever seen, this is ideal for those heading to the Serengeti in the window between March and June and from November until January. Definitely one of our top picks!

Location

Located just around the corner from the equally good Dunia Camp, Serengeti Pioneer Camp nestles up against a rocky outcrop of Nyareboro Hill and looks out across the expanse of the central Serengeti. This region is within an hour’s drive of the main game area of the Seronera but is on the end of a game loop and, as such, enjoys complete privacy from the madding crowds as well. With great game in the area around camp, this is definitely how we like our safari camps!

Layout

The main areas of the property, as with many Elewana properties, have been designed to make the most of what must be one of the best views in Africa at the moment…looking out to the savannah’s horizon. The vast and spacious tents are then dotted along the hillside with varying levels of elevation or involvement in the bush. Serengeti Pioneer Camp is not a camp for those that are hard of movement but it certainly ticks all the boxes for us.

Rooms

Luxury is always a key phrase used when talking about the Elewana properties and Serengeti Pioneer Camp is no exception to that rule. Featuring pocket sprung mattresses, outside and inside relaxing areas and some fantastic views the accommodation is lavish and yet understated.

Activities

Being located right in the heart of the Serengeti means that you are always within a stone’s throw of spectacular game populations. As you are within the park boundaries it is not possible to drive off road or walk (as is possible to the north and to the south), but simply sitting in camp for a few hours will always reward with something to take a look at and, as one of the only small properties to have a swimming pool, the camp is an activity in itself.
