ACCESS & LOCATION of Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp

Serengeti Pioneer Camp is perched on its kopje in South Central Serengeti, close to the Moru Kopjes and affording dramatic views of the Serengeti plains that drift endlessly into the horizon. The landscape, originally formed by volcanic activity, has been sculptured by the ever-changing climate and now varies 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.

Seronera airstrip is a 1hr flight from Arusha airport and a 50-minute drive from camp.

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.

Expert Review of Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp


This is a beautiful camp in all ways. The location, “tents” and lodge are beyond charming and comfortable with a spectacular view at every turn. The staff was warm, and welcoming and went out of their way to anticipate and make sure our every need was met. We were sorry to leave this special place. Until we meet again at Serengeti Pioneer Camp!
