Camping

Enjoy browsing our Camping trips

Is camping an experience you love at home, or something you want to try? Why not try this in some of the most exotic and amazing countries in the world!

We tend to offer camping nights or camping trips where other accommodation isn’t available. By camping this allows us to explore off the beaten track, away from tourists sites and really get under the skin of a country. When camping with Pioneer you will truly be in the heart of many of our destinations, as well as in touch with nature and the culture you may never have encountered before! A camping night in Madagascar is always a great way to meet the locals.  Our team wants to offer you unforgettable memories with turning such a simple experience (like camping) into something extraordinary and completely exclusive to you.

As with all Pioneer trips we care about the places we visit and communities within them, we work with small local operators and design trips to ensure they are sustainable.
