I felt 'explorers' is the best fit.

Here in this sentence pioneer is used as a noun so its best meaning is "SETTLERS".
As an verb its best meaning is "Explorer".
As an adjective its best mesning is"inventor".

Does not Pioneer mean someone who has mastered something?

Explorers and inventors are also collective nouns and not otherwise. Settlers is not the best answer i suggest that Explorers is the correct choice.

Pioneer means Leader. Settlers are not necessarily pioneers. If anything, it should be explorers.

According to Google:
Pioneers (3rd person singular present, plural of pioneer)
A person who is among the first to explore or settle a new country or area.
Develop or be the first to use or apply (a new method, area of knowledge, or activity).
So why isn't explorers correct?
