Situated in the southern Serengeti near the Moru Kopjes, the Serengeti Pioneer Camp is a throwback to the traditional 1930s style of mobile camping, with ample style and luxurious touches. Ideally located, the camp offers you superb access to the annual Wildebeest Migration and the famous Big 5 that roam the endless plains, as well as stunning views of the Moru Kopjes (where you can visit Maasai rock art) and Lake Magadi.

Spend your days exploring this world-famous national park as you search for the Big 5 and other incredible wildlife. Between game drives, relax on the viewing deck where you can continue to spot wildlife as you sip on a refreshing drink.

"Beautiful camp located in the South Western Serengeti. The public areas at this camp are elevated offering one of the best views and vantage points overlooking the Serengeti plains. I loved the traditional look and feel of the tents and ofcourse enjoyed the pool which is definately a treat."
