Olivers Camp


About

Overlooking the popular floodplains in Tanzania’s outstanding Tarangire National Park, Oliver’s Camp offers a low-key yet luxurious experience thanks to its tastefully decorated tents, its superb location, and its excellent walking and vehicle safaris. Established by respected conservationist Paul Oliver in 1992, today the camp is owned by Asilia and retains its original bushcamp feel. The camp is located in the remote south-eastern reaches of Tarangire National Park. It overlooks floodplains frequented by the park’s huge herds of elephant. The ten tents at Oliver’s Camp are en suite with indoor and outdoor showers, king-size beds, hand-carved mahogany headboards, and private verandas that offer views of Tarangire’s horizon studded by iconic baobab trees. The tents are raised on wooden platforms and rest under thatched roofs. Oliver’s main area is a double-storey wood-and-thatch structure that is open sided to take full advantage of the views. The lower level is where guests gather for meals, enjoying communal dining at the long table, while the upper level is where guests can spend hours reading or looking out towards the grazing game. For a traditional game-driving safari, the dry season (from August through to October) brings vast numbers of wildlife to the wetlands that fringe Oliver’s Camp. This time of year, Tarangire boasts unparalleled concentrations of mammals, including large herds of elephant and buffalo as well as plenty of big cats. Guests at Oliver’s Camp can also go on night drives, hot air balloon safaris, and fly-camping trips. When the annual rains come to an end (in April and May), the lush grasslands offer a superb time to take part in the walking safaris. These can range from an hour to a full day, exploring the wilderness zones and tracking animals on foot. The birdlife in Tarangire is arguably the most diverse in Africa, with more than 550 species attracted to the swamps – so binoculars at the ready!
