With only three suites the very smart Pioneer Camp, like the Granite Suites, offers a highly personal service and safari experience. It’s also the most secluded of all the lodges at Londolozi Reserve thanks in part to a canopy of 500-year-old ebony trees. Then there are the wonderful views of the river.
Even though recently renovated this camp has still not forgone its name and initial purpose, so its design falls more in line with the classical era of the adventurer.
The overall feel is a sumptuously modern one but the use of old travelling chests, gramophones, nostalgic colonial antiques and more traditional-style furniture romantically reminds you of how safaris were first forged.
For families and small groups, the entire Pioneer Camp can be exclusively hired and its connecting sky walkways mean that the three suites can be turned into one bush home
