From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Similar in concept to Londolozi's Granite Suites, Pioneer Camp, owned and operated by the Vartys (South Africa's first family of safari) has been entirely rebuilt in the shade of a 500-year-old riverine forest, its three thatched-roof suites' decor capturing the romance of safari. Picture windows and sliding doors with mosquito-proof panels bring in the outdoors, a concept furthered by a suite deck with a circular plunge pool and outdoor shower with an elevated perspective over the Sand River, its elephants, and prolific birdlife. Smart sustainability underpins every aspect of the camp, from the power-saving master switch at the front door of each room, to the local mineral water in glass bottles, to the aromatic yet biodegradable bath amenities. Interaction with staff and other guests is encouraged, and centers around a main thatched lodge with indoor-outdoor dining and lounge areas, bar, wine cellar, lap pool, and the show kitchen, where the deceptively simple pan-African dishes are inspired by local ingredients like salmon trout, venison, subtropical fruits, and macadamia nuts. While the service is relaxed, it's orchestrated with military precision to maximize guests' time on safari: Twice-daily game drives to track Londolozi's famous leopards are complemented by bush walks, fishing, sleep-outs, massage, and yoga. —2011 Hot List

Which room to book: The three suites are essentially the same, but Nos. 2 and 3 can be linked by a passage, making them ideal for families.
