Oliver’s Camp

Oliver's Camp by Asilia Africa is a small and friendly luxury camp with excellent guiding deep in the heart of Tarangire, northern Tanzania.

Tarangire National Park Tanzania

  • Superb game viewing location in Tarangire National Park
  • Excellent quality wildlife guiding
  • Jeep safaris and walking safari in Tarangire
  • Drinks by the firepit
  • Chance to sleep under the stars fly camping

Oliver's Camp, created by the pioneer Paul Oliver in 1992, is situated in the centre part of Tarangire National Park. The camp is ideally placed to access the yearly migrations of wildlife, and to view impressive concentrations at waterholes and in the spectacular Silale swamps. This area offers the best chance of seeing lion, leopard and cheetah and, especially during the dry season, the swamps are filled with elephant, buffalo and zebra.

The camp features 10 beautifully furnished guest tents. Solid wooden furniture, beautiful cloth and gorgeous warm showers that can be taken under the Tarangire sky. Every evening guests relax or read in the lounge and library tent, or drink sundowners at the fireplace.

Game drives from Oliver's Camp are usually carried out in open vehicles, giving a feeling of absolute freedom, and the depth of knowledge and experience of the camp naturalist guides makes the experience one to never forget. Being centrally located in the park, Oliver's Camp gives you the opportunity to easily go north or south for game viewing.

Walking safaris can take an hour or a whole morning or afternoon, but combined with fly camping, they can take several days, letting you discover the most remote parts of Tarangire. The lightweight fly camp is an extension of the main Oliver's Camp. The fly camp is typically booked as part of a walking safari or simply as a completely private night away from the main camp. Tents are made of thick mosquito mesh, separating you from bugs, but allowing you to see skies filled with stars and passing animals at night.

Fly camping is about adventure, not luxury: beds are comfortable and the crew cooks amazing meals in the middle of the wilderness, but tents are simple, with outside shower and bathroom facilities. For those who appreciate the true luxury of absolute proximity to nature and the private, intense and overwhelming experience that fly camping is, this experience at Oliver's Camp is one that will stay with you for a lifetime.

All in all, Oliver's Camp is a highly recommended permanent bush camp.
