Oliver's Camp Tarangire

Oliver’s Camp is our favourite camp in the Tarangire National Park.  It is a lovely, friendly, rustic camp in probably the best game viewing area in the park.  It’s definitely worth a visit if you’re interested in a real, authentic safari experience.  Providing that you go between July and November, this camp offers one of the best experiences on the northern circuit.

Oliver's Camp Tarangire - The Facts 

Oliver’s camp was first established by Paul Oliver, one of the anti-poaching pioneers of the Tarangire.  It is now owned by Asilia but they have managed to keep that adventurous spirit that Oliver originally created.  It is, therefore, a great option for someone desperate to get into the Tanza nian safari spirit.
Oliver’s has the park’s best location by far.  It is situated about 30 minutes away from Kuro Airstrip.  The camp overlooks the flood plains, popular amongst the park’s huge number of elephant.  It really is remote, making it a great base from which to explore the untouched southern section of the Tarangire.
The tents blend seamlessly into the surrounding vegetation, and are decorated with the elegant splendour that becomes a traditional Tarangire safari camp.  The location gives a feeling of exclusivity that is not so common on the northern circuit.
The main area is full of interesting paper-backs on the surrounding region and its wildlife.  A few well worn, deep, leather sofas provide a great place to sit down, have a gin and tonic and soak in your surroundings.
Two particular activities of note at Oliver’s are the walking safaris and the night drives.  The guides are always very experienced and the night drives come equipped with a night vision scope that really makes for a mind blowing experience.
