We have found Tanzania’s best-kept little secret deep in the captivating Tarangire National Park and that is Oliver’s Camp, an authentic and intimate camp taking you back to the days of early East African safaris when things were done with wild panache.
We have found a little gem of a safari camp, set in the furthest reaches of the Tarangire National Park, not far from Silale and Lormakau swamps. It’s Oliver’s Camp, and its baby brother, Little Oliver’s, both now offering an extraordinary Tanzanian safari experience in the splendour of the African bush.
The two camps have recently been joined to become a single most stunning camp in a single most stunning destination designed now as two wings linked with delightful raised wooden walkways. A total of 15 designer rooms stretch out, 10 on one side and 5 on the other side, each of these wings featuring a lounge, dining area and deck, and all rooms share the inviting, crystal clear swimming pool as the central focal point.
Guests mingle and merge as they will and get out twice a day on thrilling game drives into the park or experiencing top-quality interpretive walks to find out more about the biodiversity of the area.
Travel with Voyage2Africa to find the enormous Tarangire National Park in Tanzania’s Manyara Region, a vital refuge for wildlife that takes its name from the Tarangire River crossing the region. This Tanzania wildlife retreat covers nearly 3000 square km of picturesque granitic ridges, river valleys, and swamps. Game drives explore a mix of Acacia woodland, Combretum woodland, seasonally flooded grassland, and baobab trees.
The 10 luxury tents at Oliver’s Camp are spacious and attractive and can host families and groups when triple tents are requested. The special family tent is specifically designed to accommodate two adults and two children so that no one feels cramped and everyone has a great place to sleep and read a book. We recommend a few nights here, in this intimate camp, before jet-setting off into the rest of Tanzania on your combo game reserve tour to see the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater too.
