About Little Oliver’s Camp, Tarangire

Little Oliver’s Camp was first opened in 2013 as a celebration of its sister camp, Oliver's Camp, 20th anniversary. The style and attention to detail replicates that of Oliver's except it is more private with just five luxurious tents available- perfect for larger groups or families to stay exclusively. There are renowned guides always on hand to teach you about your beautiful surroundings.

Lodge Details


A small and intimate camp with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.


Situated to the South of Tarangire National Park, just around the corner from its larger sister camp, Oliver’s Camp.

Accommodation & Facilities

All of the stilted tents are en-suite and majestically situated within the private plain of the Minyonyo Pools on the banks of the Tarangire River. Each of the tents are traditionally furnished including large wooden framed beds and Maasai bead lampshades. The bathrooms are separated by the linen wardrobe and are complete with both indoor and outdoor showers- it is an incredible experience to return after an exciting days exploring to a relaxing shower beneath the stars with the sounds of wildlife surrounding you. Each tent also has a private veranda which is a welcome spot for a sundowner before dinner.

There is also a communal mess tent which also doubles as a dining area- as it is open on one side do not be surprised if you have an uninvited guest for breakfast! There are a number of comfortable chairs and tables filled with wildlife books and magazines which is ideal for relaxing post morning game drive and brunch. There is minimal internet and phone access, and it is requested that you do not use your mobile phones in the communal areas. A hand washing laundry service is available at Little Oliver’s. 


All meals are included at Little Oliver’s Camp with many of their ingredients locally and organically sourced. Both breakfast and dinner is served in a buffet style with a selection of hot and cold dishes accompanied by traditional fruits and salads. Dinner is a little more formal with three dishes served at the communal table; a perfect time to get to know your fellow travellers and exchange your exciting stories of the day.


Little Oliver’s places huge emphasis on ensuring its guests witness as much of the incredible flora and fauna in the surrounds as possible. There are daily game drives which often take place early morning when the animals awaken or during the night when there are often many predators around. The knowledgeable guides also have specific permits which allow them to take guests on guided walks within Tarangire National Park itself. There is also the opportunity to go fly camping where you will pack small bag and drive into the wilderness; where you will stop is dependent on where the wildlife is.
