Perfectly situated to watch the annual migration through the south-central Serengeti, Serengeti Pioneer Camp offers the nostalgia of a 1930’s mobile safari camp with modern amenities that still leave no footprint on this spectacular environment.
Accommodations at the camp consist of ten luxury canvas tents and one two-bedroom family tent. The enclosed tents have canvas-covered floors adorned with throw carpets, plush furnishings, and a writing desk with its own stationery set. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with a flushing toilet, vanity basin, and period-style hot showers. Guests sleep on comfy queen-sized mattresses surrounded by mosquito netting next to bedside tables adorned with period lamps for staying up late to read a book or journal about their adventures. There is also a dresser and hat stand. The roomy family tent is made up of a double tented room and twin tented room adjoined by a comfortable sitting room area. A canvas-covered awning is furnished with lounge chairs for viewing the wildlife roaming by.
The camp enjoys a prime location in the Serengeti, the perfect place to witness the annual Great Migration calving season, which occurs January – March. During this time, some 400,000 calves are born while the herds reside in the Southern Serengeti region with their corresponding predators following in eager pursuit of a meal. The Serengeti is famed for being home to the Big Five. The dramatic landscape of the Serengeti was originally formed by volcanic activity but now varies greatly from open grass plains in the south, savannah grasslands with scattered acacia trees in the center, hilly wood grasslands in the north to extensive woodland, and black clay plains to the west.
