About our Rate Options

Experience Africa Your Way

To us, it is important that you experience Africa YOUR way. We know that you work hard for your money, and we respect your budget & value your expectations. That is why we bring you three day-rate options: Economy, Luxury & Splendour. 

Pioneer’s “Economy” option is a first for the African hunting industry. In simple terms we are now offering the resident hunting experience to international clients. You are accommodated in the same luxurious lodges as all our clients but have few included line items ensuring a much lower day-rate. You can add optional meals, services & other items as and when you wish. Economy is an exciting new option which is opening Africa up to the new generation of hunters. 

Luxury” is what most hunters who know Africa has come to expect. Luxurious accommodations, three meals with a three-course dinner, daily cleaning & laundry, drinks and beverages, and many more included services and amenities to ensure you have an amazing time. At Pioneer however, we take the experience you expect to a whole new level.

Our “Splendour” option is exactly what it sounds like. From hunting services and gear to lodge accommodations and staff; everything is as you would expect it to be in a world-class, 5-star lodge – but for hunting! If you are the type of man who has spent unimaginable number of hours to achieve your goals, it is only fair that you treat yourself to Splendour!
