Lodge, Camp and Safaris
We have a variety of accommodation including miombo chalets, safari 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 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
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.
