Rooms at Oliver's Camp

Oliver’s is low-key and comfortable, reminiscent of the safari camps of old. Sink into one of the sofas in the lounge and dining area with a good book or keep an eye out for passing zebras and elephants from your deck. Their 10 en suite tents overlooking the floodplain are decorated in earth tones to mirror the landscape. The beds are twin or king-sized. Bathrooms have flushing toilets and both indoor and outdoor showers. Your private deck is the perfect place to sit with a cold drink and enjoy the stillness and serenity of the African bush.  

Meals are cooked in-camp and served al fresco whenever possible. Start the day with a continental breakfast or bacon and eggs. Lunch is a light buffet and dinner is a three-course sit-down meal. Every week, they host a big barbecue for all guests. If you’d like to spend more time out in the bush, they can prepare a picnic breakfast or lunch.

Location of Oliver's Camp

Oliver’s is in the remote south-eastern reaches of Tarangire National Park, in northern Tanzania, close to the game-rich Silale Swamps. In April and May, at the end of the annual rains, the landscape is lush and dotted with wildflowers. From August until October, herds of antelope and zebras pass through Tarangire. At this time, the park has the highest concentration of mammals in the country.  

Throughout the year, Tarangire is home to large herds of elephants and buffalo and a high concentration of big cats. There are also animals such as wild dogs, kudu, oryx and gerenuks that won’t be found in the north of Tanzania. And for birders, there are more than 550 species, many of which are attracted to the park’s swamps.

Activities at Oliver's Camp

Game drives or walks tend to be first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon when temperatures are cooler. Exact times differ slightly with the seasons, but they aim to get you out and about when the animals are at their most active. If you have booked a private vehicle, you can discuss your own schedule with your guide.

Start the day with an early morning wake-up call and a cup of tea or coffee. Have some breakfast before you depart for a game drive or walk or opt to take a picnic with you to enjoy in the bush. By mid-morning, you’ll be back in camp with some time to relax and freshen up before lunch.

It’s siesta time for most of the afternoon, when temperatures reach their peak. Take the opportunity to relax with a book or have a nap. Then it’s on to afternoon tea before you depart for a game drive with sundowners. Round off another perfect day in the bush with drinks by the campfire and dinner with good company.
