"Pioneer Camp is not great"
The evening meal was terrible. The breakfast was excellent. The length of time required for preparation was absurd
The Dutch "greeter" who fronted was a non salaried "newbie" who was drowning quickly. She did try very hard - so she said - to find our Bradt Guide which we had mislaid. The owner was away.
I would have preferred to haver overnighted in a standard hotel in Lusaka." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
"Pioneer Camp review"
Food was so-so - quantity over quality. If there is a modern hotel that is OK and closer to the airport I think I would stay there next time." See all these reviews: 7n in Zambia
"A good last night"
The only down side was the apalling road to reach it, made more comfortable in the morning by the use of a Land cruiser." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia
"Very handy for an early flight from Lusaka."
The camp itself was extremely well fitted out and the bar area was warm, comfortable and very well decorated. As our room was a bit away from the main lodge, the in-house driver dropped us off and collected us for a quick breakfast before taking us to Lusaka Airport.
Our room was very nicely decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable. Lots of room to scatter our luggage!!
Even though we arrived quite late, the stand-in manager, Phil, made sure we had toasted sandwiches to keep us going." See all these reviews: 12n in Zambia

"Africa at Pioneer, not the concrete jungle!"
The great way to relax in similar surround to that in the valley whilst retaining that Africa feeling.
Enjoyed the conversation and the archery at dusk.
Great steaks, the perfect way to end from what was the perfect vacation." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
"True Pioneer style."
The 'pick up' and transfer was very efficient and the usual friendly welcome and good breakfast that awaits soon after my arrival.
Safe and clean, good birding within the grounds this time of year.
Evenings spent socialising with different people, fellow travellers, sharing stories and enjoying the damn good steaks on offer.
Thankyou to Paul, Alfred and the Pioneer team." See all these reviews: 13n in Zambia
