Oliver's Camp is a lovely tented camp situated in a low, sandy ridge. Open from June to the end of March, it is particularly good for game in the height of the dry season, when the marshes attract huge herds of buffalo, zebra and wildebeest.
Oliver's Camp Highlights
Open from June to the end of March, it is particularly good for game in the height of the dry season, when the marshes attract huge herds of buffalo, zebra and wildebeest. Oliver's Camp is situated in the remote south-eastern part of the park, in the middle of Tarangire's unspoilt wilderness. A comfortable yet luxurious camp retains the rustic accommodation feel with open-air rainshowers which, although designed to look like a bucket shower, are fully plumbed. Enclosed by a wooden fence, these showers allow you to refresh while watching the sunset in privacy. There are no power sockets in the tents, but you can charge any batteries in the main office.
- Off-road driving makes wildlife drives more intense and interesting and allows you to get closer to the action.
- An extension of Oliver's Camp is a fly camp, typically booked as part of a walking safari or simply as a completely private night away from the main camp.
- You can arrange to do a hot-air balloon safari over Tarangire National Park.
Oliver's Camp Game Viewing and Activities
Tarangire is known for its large herds of elephant and majestic baobab trees. You can find many of the large African mammals here, including lion, leopard, buffalo, and lesser and greater kudu. The park hosts an enormous variety of birds - more than 500 species. Oliver's 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 is the perfect base to explore the busier baobab-country in the north of the park, but at the end of the day, guests return to the absolute exclusivity of Oliver's Camp. Off-road driving makes wildlife drives more intense and interesting and allows you to get closer to the action. Walking and fly camping add another unique element to a safari that is hard to find in other parts of Tanzania. The park's stunning natural beauty is ideal for wildlife and nature photography.
Swala Camp is one of the best camps in Tarangire National Park. It is situated in a remote area in the western section of the park. The park is famous for elephant which can frequently be seen in and around the camp as well as at the camp's waterhole.
