Serengeti 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.
Accommodations and Facilities:
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 forgotten.
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.
In 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 River.
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 December the Migration arrives at the short-grass plains, in time for the rains.
