After 5 days in several parks and camps we spent 3 days at the pioneer camp. No words to express the feeling you get here. Everything seems authentic: the magnificent tents, the cosy lounge, the wonderful meals with an awesome view. The romantic candlelight diners with lions just

We spent 2 nights there on October 24th and 25th during our 2 week-trip in Tanzania/Zanzibar and, among the beautiful lodges/camps we went to, the Serengeti Pioneer Camp was our TOP 1!
There, we really enjoyed a customized experience, and went "back to 1930" in our luxurious tent

I am planning a trip for January/February. How far is Serengeti Pioneer Camp from Sanctuary Kusini? Are they both in the southern Serengeti or is one in Central Serengeti? Is there a map anywhere with all the lodges shown?
The Pioneer Camp is in central Serengeti. We realized that there are different types of hotels and camps, most of them secluded and with access restricted to guests. Serengeti is really huge, so everything is far from any place. You should better contact a tour company to guide you. There are a bunch of them for different budgets and bilingual guides.

I plan a visit with friends to Serengeti in Jan 2016, I would like to know the best place / camp near where can see wildbeest migration?
Hello from Elewana. Thank you for your email. january is not the best time to come and see the Migration as it is really only travelling through the Serengeti between early June and late August. I would very much like to share a link with you via our website but Trip Advisor does not allow us to do this, for some strange reason. However if you go to our site at Serengeti Migration Camp or Serengeti Pioneer Camp, you will see a link for the Migration route and times of the year. Check this out so that you can see the Migration path. If you are coming in January, there is so much to see at Tarangire, Ngorongoro and still in the Serengeti. It is one of my favourite times of the year as it is quieter, not as hot and a little quieter in terms of tourism, especially towards the end of the month. Should you wish to contact me (Jason Barry) please go to our contacts page on the elewana Collection website and seek me out. Then we can communicate directly. Best regards Jason barry Group Director - Elewana

"All rooms were about the same. The solar powered heating could prove an issue some days."
"All the tents appeared equally good."
"This is a very small and specialized camp. No need to choose a room. All tents are great!"
"all the tents are the same"
"dont be afraid to chose a tent far from the camp"
