Oliver’s Camp

Tarangire National Park

Established by pioneer Paul Oliver in 1992 this camp is for safari enthusiasts wanting more than the postcard-snaps of the Big Five. Set in the secluded Tarangire National Park, it is a camp that celebrates back-to-basics luxury in one of the most uncrowded corners of East Africa. Oliver’s Camp consists of 10 en-suite safari tents of Oliver’s Camp. They are really well spaced, ensuring a feeling of exclusivity and intimacy. The camp design and atmosphere provide a classical bush experience: solid wooden furniture, comfortable chairs and a library with books on the surrounding nature and wildlife. The tents have excellent bathroom facilities, with running hot and cold water, flush loos and proper showers looking out over the Minyonyo floodplains. After activities, guests find a place to reflect and relax on their private verandas, in the lounge, library or dining tent or around the fireplace. Dinners are service in the dining tent or under the Tarangire sky. The camp crews have been a close team for many years and this clearly shows in their deeppknowledge of the park and the quality of food and personal service.Oliver’s Camp is a camp where the blood-red leather armchairs match the ochre soils beyond the decking; where headboards are hand-carved from African mahogany and baobab trees puncture the horizon from your private veranda.Come nightfall, little more than canvas separates your king-size bed from the restless wilderness beyond. Meals are taken communally at the main lodge, while around the campfire whiskies are poured and safari tales told late into the night.Just 1km downstream from Oliver’s Camp is Little Oliver’s. Offering the same high level of service and authentic safari experience as Oliver’s, Little Oliver’s has 5 en-suite tents and works particularly well for a group or family travelling together, sleeping up to eleven.
