This was the first camp we stayed in 2011. Since then we have stayed in Tree Camp twice, and Founders Camp once – we stayed in Founders Camp when we brought our daughters family with us (Kira, Justin, and our granddaughter Lolayna – then 7). We hope to return in 2020 (for my 70 birthday (March 2), and our 50th wedding anniversary(September 5)) with our daughters family, it will be in your winter season due to school recess. So it won’t be on the exact dates, but we will still celebrate these auspicious occasions.

Bronwyn, The upgrades look so inviting. Not sure how you managed to improve something that was so beautiful before, but your team did just that. Great job

Classic safari style with splashes of modern thrown in to suit today’s travelers, makes this a perfect destination for couples or families. I noticed a few similarities between this camp and Founders namely the bathtub, bed and plunge pool. Those three things made my room time really special.

Super video as well as the blog!!

What wonderful memories come flooding back while viewing the refurbishing of Pioneer Camp. John and I have stayed at Tree Camp once and Pioneer Camp twice. Our absolute favourite is House #1 in Pioneer. It looks so bright,peaceful and refreshing and certainly became our “safari home”. Shan what a fabulous job you and your team have done. Congratulations!
