Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

120 km from Arusha, Oliver’s Camp is in the ultra-wild Southern part of Tarangire National Park. It’s also a good base to explore the busier Baobab country in the North of Tanzania.

Rooms at Oliver's Camp

Raised up on platforms, and surrounded by sand and scrub, the 10 spacious tents at Oliver’s Camp have incredible views over the teeming marshes (bird-watchers in particular will be itching to get the binoculars out!) Beneath the thatched roofs, the rooms have a wonderfully rustic feel with chunky tree-trunk furniture, and in a screened-off area outside you’ll find a fully-plumbed “bucket” shower.

Food & Drink

Food at Oliver’s camp is high-energy and delicious – just what you need for a day of walking safaris – and in the evenings, a 3 course dinner is served on the tree-surrounded dining platform. 


You can sink into one of the leather arm-chairs in the library tent, or sit round the bush-TV (campfire!) with fellow campers and guides.

Activities at Oliver's Camp

There's no adrenaline rush quite like following Lion, Leopard, and Buffalo on a game-drive. Or, if you want to experience the rustles and roars of the bush, how about spending a night fly-camping?
