Pioneer Camp is situated just outside Lusaka, twenty minutes from the international airport - and this location is key to why we sometimes recommend it. If you have an early morning flight out of Lusaka, then spending your last night here might make sense. It's in a fairly rural setting, which contrasts sharply with the city-based hotels as an option for a stop-over.
Our view of Pioneer Camp
Pioneer Camp is a simple, laid-back camp which works well for an inexpensive stopover in Lusaka to connect to the BA flights. If you don't like large, impersonal hotels, and don't mind quite simple, rustic accommodation, then this is a good option.
