Located 20 minutes from the Lusaka Airport, Pioneer Camp is a convenient stopover when attempting to avoid the Lusaka traffic.
Pioneer is not a luxury property, and guests should not judge the rest of their trip using this accommodation as a benchmark – it is simply a bed in a city. The best that can be said about Pioneer is that it is quite social and you will get to meet interesting fellow travelers.
The rooms are thatched cottages and, although there is no wildlife on the property, it has more of a safari-lodge feel about it than other Lusaka hotels. It also has a swimming pool and internet access.
Pioneer is for the budget conscious, families, or anyone who wants to avoid spending time in downtown Lusaka.
