Dotted with groves of ancient Baobab Trees, Tarangire National Park, where Oliver’s Camp is situated plays host to enormous herds of buffalo and roaming elephant. With arguably the best diversity of bird life in the area and a number of big cats, wildlife enthusiasts won’t be disappointed on their daily game drives although it is the walking safaris that this luxury camp are known for. An armed national park ranger and experienced camp guide accompany walkers in their quest to view the likes of elephant, giraffe, buffalo or even lion in their natural habitat.
Whether a morning or afternoon’s adventure, a stroll along the Tarangire river banks with your Olivers Camp guides or an overnight fly camp experience, discovering Tarangire National Park on foot is a highlight. And with just eight luxury tents, privacy is most certainly a given.
After a day spent tracking elephant and other animals, guests freshen up in their en-suite tents then head for the camp’s lounge and library tent for pre dinner drinks. Open to the elements, dining this close to nature is an unforgettable experience – with the stars as your canopy overhead and the sounds of the wild as your soundtrack.
The aim of founder Paul Oliver was to offer guests an authentic bush experience and there’s no doubt that this is the real deal. Colonial style elements in the decor and details, an authentic life under canvas experience and a commitment to the surrounding community with their responsible tourism philosophies sets this unique tented camp apart.
Situated in the Tarangire National Park, Oliver’s Camp is a permanent tented camp where privacy and an unspoilt and remote position in the heart of the Tanzanian wilderness enhances the authentic East African safari experience.
