Oliver’s Camp, located in Tarangire National Park, is the perfect camp for those with an appetite for adventure. Set a little off the beaten track, beside marshland, Oliver’s offers basic luxury and a great escape from the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crowds.
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 elephant from your deck.
Their 10 ensuite 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.
Start the day with an early morning wake-up call with a cup of tea or coffee, have breakfast, then depart for a game drive or walk. By mid-morning, you’ll be back in camp with some time to relax before lunch. Enjoy siesta time for most of the afternoon, 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.
