Pioneer Camp (Southern Serengeti National Park) Tanzania
Located in the Southern Serengeti (within the Moru Kopjes
area), Serengeti Pioneer Camp is ideally situated to offer
superlative access to the annual migration and the ‘Big 5’
withsweeping views overlooking Moru Kopjes, Lake Magadi and
the endless plains.
Each of Elewana Collection’s camps and
lodges has its own individual style and feel. Serengeti
Pioneer Camp continues this tradition.
Paying homage to the mobile camps of the 1930’s, a time
when an African safari was truly a journey into the unknown,
Serengeti Pioneer Camp’s ‘zero footprint’ and close
proximity to nature combines to make an unmistakably
distinctive and truly individual offering.
Comprising of ten-tented accommodations, all of which
have en-suite facilities including a flushing toilet, vanity
basin, and showers, the tent interiors are designed to evoke
the very best of an era long-gone but certainly not
A dining tent hosts the Camp’s guests for both breakfast
and dinner, whilst luncheons are taken either in the Camp or
in the bush during what will no doubt be yet another
enthralling day in the Serengeti. Serengeti Pioneer Camp captures the original essence of
the mobile African safari, engendering nostalgic wonderment
whilst unlocking the adventurous spirit within all of us.
Activities / The Wildebeest Migration Pattern
Due to varying weather conditions and other such factors,
the Migration can differ in its location at any time of the
year. However a general prediction for the Migratory pattern
month-by-month can be summarised as follows:
In January herds of the wildebeest are to be found in the
southern Serengetion on the short-grass plains.
February the Migration has spread out across the short-grass
plains of the southern Serengeti.
In March the Migration
is now spread across southern Serengeti, Loliondo and
Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
In April the migrating
herds start moving north through the areas of the Moru
Kopjes and Seronera.
In May the Migration heads north through Seronera towards
the Western Corridor.
In June the Migration collects in
the area of the western corridor before crossing the Grumeti
In July the Migration continues to cross the
Grumeti and across the Grumeti Reserve.
In August the
Migration continues up into the far north-west of the
Serengeti National Park.
In September wildebeest herds in
the north of Serengeti National Park and in the Maasai Mara.
In October wildebeest grazing in the far north of the
Serengeti - and across in the Mara.
In November the
Migration starts its first trek south through Loliondo and
via the eastern extremities of the Serengeti National Park.

in time for the rains.
