Oliver’s Camp

Tarangire National Park

Oliver’s Camp in Tarangire National Park is located close to the Silale and Loamkau marsh areas. The lodge has been built on a sandy ridge affording beautiful views over the marshes with buffalo, zebra and wildebeest constant sightings from camp. Open from June to the end of March these times are particularly good for game viewing.

The main lodge area of Oliver’s Camp is a double story wooden lodge with thatch roof that looks out over the surrounding African bush. Dinner in the evenings is one long table accommodating all guests and ensures a very warm atmosphere from which to share stories of the days activities.

In front of the main lodge is a fire area that is the perfect location for pre dinner drinks. There is also a smaller deck off to one side for private dinners for honeymoon couples. The breakfast deck has stunning views over the Tarangire River.

Tented Suites

With ten spacious tented suites that have been raised onto wooden platforms the camp has minimal impact on the environment. Each room is well appointed with king size beds, twin beds or triples for families with children. The honeymoon tent has been set apart from the other tents and has a beautiful en suite double headed shower. Two tents can be made into triples if necessary and there is also a family tent that sleeps four.

Tarangire National Park  is well known for vast herds of elephant and buffalo with large prides of lions that stalk the buffalo constantly. Wild Dogs, Kudu and Gerenuk that are not often seen in the other parks can also be seen in this area. Some 550 species of birds are attracted to the swamps making Oliver’s a premier birding destination.
