An exclusive and private tented camp.
In the exclusive southern region of Tarangire National Park.
Accommodation & Facilities
The camp design and atmosphere provide a classical bush experience: solid wooden furniture, comfortable chairs and a library with books on the surrounding nature & wildlife. The tents have excellent bathroom facilities, with flush toilets, running water and bush showers looking out over the Minyonyo floodplains. After a day of safari activities, guests can reflect and relax on their private veranda or in the lounge/library tent.
Dinners are served in the dining tent or under the Tarangire sky beside the camp fire. The camp crew has been a close team for many years and this clearly shows in the deep knowledge of the park and the quality of food and personal service.
Oliver’s Camp offers a diverse range of safari activities: game drives, fantastic walking safaris and fly-camping (private light-weight camping under the Tarangire stars) inside the national park. This all makes a stay at Oliver’s Camp a classic safari experience.
Oliver's Camp offers the unique opportunity to leave the vehicle behind and experience Tarangire National Park and its wildlife on foot. Walking safaris are guided by experienced walking guides and an armed ranger accompanies the walks. Guests learn about nature, wildlife behaviour and animal tracks on walking safaris. Although animals are usually spotted on walking safaris, the goal is not to get as close as possible to the wildlife, but rather to observe their undisturbed behaviour. Walking can best be done in the morning. Walks longer than half a day are available upon request. Walking can be done by children of 16 years and over and at the discretion of the guide. Participation in walking safaris is at own risk and participation of children is at parents risk.
One (or more) nights of private fly camping under the Tarangire stars, with animal sounds all around, is unforgettable for adventurous safari guests. Fly camping tents are made of thick mosquito mesh so that stars can be seen from the bed (fly sheet for inclement weather). Fly camping is adventure, not luxury: fly camping tents are lightweight, with a shared outside short-drop toilet and shower cubicle. Fly camping can be done by children of 16 years and over.
Children younger than 6 are not allowed.
Camp Closed: April-May
