Lodge, Camp and Safaris

We are attending WTM CAPE TOWN this April. We would love to meet you there! If you wish to make an appointment with us, please email 


PIONEER CAMP IS OPEN AGAIN!!! After re thatching our main bar area, although we are still working on the extension of the dining area and some other small jobs around camp, we are now open as usual. 


We have a variety of accommodation including miombo chalets, safari chalets, pioneer chalets and  pioneer tents as well as a two bedroomed cottage, all set within our 25 acres of miombo woodland.

All chalets are designed to be in-keeping with your African safari. All miombo chalets have ensuite facilities, with private verandas and lovely woodland views, the safari chalets are to the same specification but smaller and the Pioneer tents and chalets are our basic range for those travelling on more of a budget. There is an incredibly relaxed feel to the whole property.

You can safely walk around the property, which is surprisingly good for birding too.

We’re located just 16 kms (30 mins) from the international airport or Lusaka’s shopping centres, so Pioneer is the ideal place to be if you need to be near Lusaka but don’t want to be in it.

How to find us
GPS Coordinates:
S 15.23.78
E 28.27.02
IMPORTANT NOTE- if using Google Maps, we currently have a problem with the search of 'Pioneer Camp Zambia', the information provided is wrong. Please use Pioneer Lodge, Camp and Safaris' when searching for us on Google maps. We are in the process of correcting this. 
If you are travelling from Lusaka, head to the airport roundabout, You take the road for Chongwe/ Chipata (straight over the roundabout) and continue straight until you reach the police checkpoint. Immediately after the checkpoint there is a right turn onto a dirt road, this is Palabana Road, you drive for roughly 4km and turn right at the sign for Pioneer, continue for 1km and you will reach our gate.

Pioneer Safaris can also plan your Zambian adventure, take a look at our safaris page to see some sample packages and information on the various destinations.

We can also transfer you by road anywhere in Zambia in an air-conditioned 4x4, see our transfers page for more details.
