Set in the game-rich Tarangire National Park, Oliver’s Camp embodies the romance of the glory days of African safari camps.
Accommodations at the camp consist of ten luxury tents with thatched roofs. Each tent has the option of two twin beds or one double with one being able to convert to a triple upon request. The en suite bathrooms features plenty of running water heated by solar power, flush toilets, and both an indoor and a romantic outdoor shower with amazing views but complete privacy. A large private deck furnished with comfortable daybeds overlooks the stunning bushveld. There is one larger family tent that can house up to two adults and two children without feeling cramped.
Established by Paul Oliver in 1992, the safari camp is located in Tarangire, the sixth largest national park in Tanzania occupying 1,096 square miles southwest of Arusha. The park is famous for its huge number of elephants, baobab trees, tree climbing lions, resident zebra, and wildebeest. Plus, the park is a bird lover’s heaven with over 550 species. The swamps are concentrated with the largest selection of breeding birds anywhere in the world and great place to see the yellow-collared lovebirds. A place of widely diverse landscape and vegetation, it encompasses hills dotted with baobabs, dense bush, and high grasses. This varied landscape is also famous for the termite mounds that dot the landscape.
