Oliver's Camp

Oliver's Camp

Tarangire National Park

Oliver's Camp Location Map

Established by pioneer Paul Oliver in 1992, Oliver's Camp is situated in the remote south-eastern reaches of the Tarangire National Park. Reflecting the glory days of African safaris, the camp has a low-key simplicity enhanced by discreet creature comforts and truly welcoming hosts.

This relatively undeveloped Park - enjoyed by safari travellers looking to head a little off the beaten track - offers a welcome respite from the crowds of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. Tarangire boasts large herds of elephant and buffalo, plus a large concentration of big cats and arguably the best bird diversity in East Africa with more than 500 species. During the dry season from August through to October, vast herds of wildlife migrate to the watery wetlands on the fringes of Oliver's Camp, and at this time, Tarangire boasts the highest concentration of mammals in any of Tanzania's renowned National Parks.

With a reputation for fantastic guiding, twice daily game drives in open game-viewing vehicles head out in the cooler mornings and evenings. The open vehicles have power points and are fitted with fridges to keep your drinks cool. Closed game-viewing vehicles are also available.

Walking safaris are, however, the absolute speciality of Oliver's Camp. The privilege of walking in these natural areas gives you an exhilarating feeling of adventure, and a safari on foot can take an hour or a whole morning or afternoon, depending on what you want to do.

There are 10 luxury tents at Oliver's Camp in total and all feature kingsized beds and en-suite bathrooms with a lovely outdoor shower with views of the surrounding area. The tents also have thatched roofs and private wooden desks with day beds. There is also one family tent specifically designed to accomodate 2 adults and 2 children. Larger than the usual tents, the emphasis here is on creating enough space to accommodate a family without anyone feeling too cramped.

In the main area, deep leather sofas invite you to relax and watch the restless wilderness beyond. Meals are taken communally in the dining room, while around the camp fire whiskies are poured and safari tales told late into the night.
