Guest Testimonial

My wife, Cindy, and I travelled with A&K this September. Saying that we were “very satisfied” would be an understatement. I did not feel that the survey I received provided a way for me to say how satisfied we are and to commend some individuals.

- DM, London



Modelled on the luxurious mobile camps of the 1930's, a stay at Serengeti Pioneer Camp will transport you back to a bygone era when an African safari was truly a journey into the unknown. Ultra-stylish and supremely comfortable, the ten beautifully-appointed tents are adorned with throw carpets, period-style lamps, luxuriant soft furnishings and writing desks. Each tent has an en suite bathroom with a flushing toilet, vanity basin and hot showers with a quirky ground sheet for the flooring completing a true camping feel.


The attention to detail here is excellent: the staff will soon know your favourite tipple and nothing is ever too much trouble. The food is a top notch, with breakfast and dinner served in the dining tent. You can opt to have lunch either in the camp or in the bush, although we recommend the latter! With the 'Big Five' and the annual migration on the camp's door step, the experiences you have here are guaranteed to stay with you long after you return home.
