Oliver’s Camp is located in the middle of the Tarangire National Park amid dense game populations and unparalleled scenery. The camp overlooks Ngorongoro, the Great Rift Valley, and Lake Manyara in addition to Tarangire, making it an excellent location for learning about the delicate ecosystem of the park while enjoying the breathtaking beauty found in Tanzania.
Oliver’s Camp comprises 10 beautiful tents featuring solid wood furnishings and wonderful décor. The tents each have en suite bathrooms with flush toilets and open-air showers from which to enjoy the stunning Tarangire sky.
Guests are invited to join the Oliver’s Camp family as soon as they set foot in camp. The team here has been together for many years, and they are delighted to share their knowledge of the park and its inhabitants. The expert naturalists can not only find you a resident lion pride but can also point out the individual pride members and explain their characteristics and habits.
In addition to game drives, Oliver’s Camp is most well known for its walking safaris. For many years, walking was not allowed in Tarangire, but the camp has taken full advantage of the park authorities’ decision to allow excursions on foot. Your guide and ranger will assure that you will be very safe as the point of a walking safari is not to disturb the animals, but to be able to observe their natural behavior. Walking is usually done in the mornings for half a day, but longer excursions can be arranged.
Fly camping is another important part of the Oliver’s Camp experience. You can arrange for fly camping to be combined with walking safaris, allowing you to discover the most remote regions of the park, or to have one private night away from the camp. The simple, lightweight fly camp tents are made of thick mosquito mesh that allows you to experience sleeping under the stars and animals passing in the distance at night. Though not as luxurious as the main camp, the tents do have comfortable beds and outdoor showers and bathrooms, and the overwhelming beauty of the experience will make for a lifetime of memories.Request Information
