ELEWANA SERENGETI PIONEER CAMP - SOUTHERN SERENGETI
Perched high on a kopje and enjoying stunning views across the Serengeti and Lake Magadi Elewana Serengeti Pioneer Camp has its own individual style and feel of the mobile camps of the 1930’s. The camp has a ‘zero footprint’ and allows guests to feel close to nature in a beautiful setting.
The camp is located in the Southern Serengeti within the Moru Kopjes area and is ideally situated to offer access to the annual migration during season.
The camp has just twelve very comfortable tented rooms with ensuite facilities including a flushing toilet, vanity basin and showers. There are 11 ensuite Luxury Safari Tents which can be either twin or double and each tent is furnished in a traditional safari-style and has the feel of a 1930's mobile safari camp with modern day luxuries. There is one Family Ensuite Tent - an incredibly spacious tent with a double ensuite tented room and twin ensuite tented room joined by a sitting room area.
There is a comfortable sitting area built on a kopje with amazing views and is the perfect place to enjoy your sundowners and drinks before dinner or sit and read inbetween game drives. The dining tent hosts guests for both breakfast and dinner whilst lunch is taken either in the camp or in the bush al fresco style.
Game Drives - the camp's prime location allows you to be in the midst of the drama of the annual migration calving season which occurs from January to March. An evolutionary phenomenon - in the short span of just a few weeks some 400,000 calves are born while the herds stay in the Southern Serengeti region to take advantage of the nutritious grazing. The calving season attracts numerous predators and you shoud have the chance to see lots of action! When the herds of wildebeest and zebra have left on their journey back north, what remains in the area is an abundance of wildlife and excellent game viewing year-round. The Serengeti is famed for its superb wildlife and you will have access to some of the best game viewing opportunities in East Africa.
Bush Meals - stay out longer and take your breakfast or a lunch hamper on a game drive and enjoy a delicious gourmet meal while taking in the views over the Serengeti.
Lake Magadi - is a large soda lake and seasonally home to thousands of pink flamingo. Year round the lake is home to numerous bird species and is an easy drive from camp.
Moru Kopjes - a rocky outcrop with great historical significance to the Maasai people, Moru Kopjes features ancient maasai paintings on many of its boulders. Another fascination of the kopje are the gong rocks - a geological phenomenon of rocks that produce musical sounds when hit and which were used as a communication tool by the Maasai people.
