Londolozi Pioneer Camp

Kruger safaris to Londolozi Pioneer Camp

For a sophisticated bush experience at a famous family-run safari outfit, we recommend Kruger safaris to Londolozi Pioneer Camp. Welcome to this incredibly easy-going luxury safari camp in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Why not tailor make your fully inclusive five-star package in only 7 bohemian style chalets? This is luxury safari accommodation at its best, for families who want to be near the Kruger National Park. 

The most relaxed of all the Sabi Sabi luxury camps, Pioneer Camp is just that – the first camp to be created in such a way as to be able to change with the needs of the groups, in style. Décor harks back to days of those original safari homesteads where elegant antiques line the walls and quality carpets and fabrics embrace the visitor.

Walk into exquisite individual luxury suites that can be transformed into a private bush home for family groups of eight adults and six children using unique glass sky walkways to link the family units. Your exciting adventure with dedicated game rangers begins here – absorb their extensive knowledge of the biodiversity of the Sabi Sand, Kruger National Park territory.

So secluded and tranquil, Pioneer Camp is unlike the other Londolozi Camps in its remote individuality as it peeps out from splendid old ebony trees. Only three large suites offer the perfect wilderness safari setting for honeymoon couples who can book out the entire camp, or families and friends comprising four couples and their kids. 

Special guests feel as if they have stepped back in time when they enter Pioneer Camp, so cleverly does it remind safari enthusiasts about the history of wildlife viewing. But it brings to this era plenty of decadence and wealth in the use of high-class materials and architecture, décor and furnishings. 

​​Travellers seeking less structure and more freedom to make decisions around game viewing, dining and relaxing times can stop here. This is the safari holiday you personalise for your safari needs and decide when and how to do it – bring close friends and gather around the interactive kitchen for meals together, eat out on the huge deck and do lengths in the long swimming pool. 

Pioneer Camp is the most intimate family-run safari homestead in Southern Africa. Become a part of the Kruger bushveld in a very personal way if you want to seek out real nature and authentic comfort in every nuance of your vacation.

Londolozi Pioneer Camp Overview

A sense of colonial safari history prevails when you walk into Londolozi Pioneer Camp and see evidence on the walls of the safari pioneers themselves from the famous Varty Family. This family designed elegant bush experience is unique in that guests can be flexible. Less pressure on being organised and schedule-free in spacious suites designed for fun and rest. These are linked with unique glass sky walkways to ensure the connection between family and friends groups. Sophistication at its best in a home away from home atmosphere. 

Come to Pioneer Camp to reconnect with the wilderness and thus yourself. Find time to be alone and get involved in specialised bush walks where you learn all there is to know about the wilderness biodiversity and what people can do to save it all.

Londolozi Pioneer Camp is committed to professional and rewarding morning and evening game drives and walks in nature so that guests in their family groups can get close to lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo, not to mention herds of antelope and zebra. Look out for majestic raptors such as the African Fish Eagle and the Hooded Vulture.

What do past clients say about this destination?


The wife and I recently went to Londolozi Pioneer Camp in the Kruger, and I had such a great time. We were treated so well by the staff and I can honestly say there is nothing we can even think to complain about.
