Serengeti Pioneer Lodge

Prime location for the Great Migration at Pioneer Lodge

Get that trip organised to East Africa and choose Serengeti Pioneer Lodge in Tanzania as your go-to base in a prime location for the Great Migration. Voyage2Africa rates Pioneer Lodge in the Serengeti for its year-round game and distinctive position to see the wonders of the Great Migration plus you get excellent guiding and a five-star luxury lodge to boot!

We love this camp in the deep vegetation of the south central Serengeti within the Moru Kopjes region, the panoramic views towards Lake Magadi and vast grasslands so typical of this area. In addition, Pioneer Camp is extra special because it is an eco-camp with a minimal environmental footprint on the surrounding wilderness so it offers special guests a true return to nature. Only 12 tented suites promise a luxury refuge for animal lovers including showers, flushing toilets, and tasteful old-world safari interiors of true quality amenities and linens.  

Head off on a safari full of unbelievable, once-in-a-lifetime moments when you book your holiday at Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp and have a tour elevated from amazing to absolutely magical. The setting, in the very heart of the Serengeti bush, is reminiscent of a safari from a bygone age, but with every mod con possible, from hot water to wi-fi. The lounge offers stunning views, with the bonus of experiencing the most incredible sunrise imaginable. The food is worthy of any 5-star hotel you will find anywhere in the world and is served in a setting twinkling with lanterns and the glow of a log fire. 

Add to this attentive staff, friendly and personable guides who will do all they can to enhance your stay. Get to view tons of animals including large prides of lions, leopards, cheetahs, thousands of zebras, baboons, hyenas – and the tiny things in between. Chat to Voyage2Africa about your personal tour into the Serengeti with a few nights in Pioneer Lodge and a few nights in another bush camp for that combo safari holiday.



Find the exquisite Serengeti Pioneer Lodge perfectly situated in south central Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, within the Moru Kopjes area. Visitors choose this luxury bush camp specifically to witness the drama of the annual migration of wildebeest and zebra to greener pastures and then they take in the Big 5 and birds galore too. The panoramic views from the camp make it all so worthwhile, way across the huge plains to the Moru Kopjes and Lake Magadi beyond. 

Enter a camp that is indeed based on the pioneer explorer days when the likes of Livingstone and Selous discovered the Vic Falls and the Lakes, in awe of this landscape, just like you will be. Quality tasteful décor of the 1930s safari era but despite all the antiques and mod cons, Serengeti Pioneer Camp is an eco-camp with a zero footprint aim and a penchant to just merge into nature, not impact on it. 

Just 10 refined luxury tents boast hot showers and fantastic linens, private decks and plenty of privacy for guests wanting to commune with nature. Stroll over to the dining tent for meals or enjoy private bush meals in hidden destinations where you are alone with the animals and the skies. This is the captivating Serengeti and Pioneer Camp staff ensure that all guests come to see, leaving no negative impacts whatsoever.

The aim of the camp is to highlight the importance of biodiversity in the bigger picture and to show humans that we too rely on natural resources to survive so conservation in Africa is vital for our own survival. Plan a safari tour to the Serengeti and add a game drive in the Ngorongoro Crater region and a trip to the Great Rift Valley too while you are at it!
