Tarangire National Park, the most underrated park in the region, is by far the best place in Northern Tanzania to see elephants and its landscape is hauntingly beautiful with ancient baobab trees dominating the landscape making it a lot of people’s favorite scenic park. There is a good diversity of predators and with many itineraries skipping Tarangire and instead jamming into the small Lake Manyara National Park you can better escape crowds and enjoy the vast environment of this wonderful park.
Oliver’s Camp is situated in the remote south-eastern part of the park, in the middle of Tarangire’s unspoilt wilderness. 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 the swamps attract 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.
Oliver’s Camp’s crew has been a team for many years and as a result, a stay in camp feels like joining into a warm family. A family that will not only prepare amazing meals for you, but one that will also share with you a deeper knowledge of this stunning national park and its inhabitants.
The camp features 10 beautifully furnished guest tents. Ensuite bathrooms have running water sinks and showers and flush loos. Every evening, guests relax or read in the lounge and library tent, or drink sundowners at the fireplace, from which superb views of landscape and sunset can be enjoyed. This is one of Tanzania’s most special camps.
Walking safaris (extra cost) and off-road driving are possible in the area around Oliver’s Camp, thus ensuring you discover Tarangire in an intense and unforgettable way.
