Found in the south of Tarangire National Park, Oliver's Camp offers an authentic safari experience, echoing the adventures of a bygone era. The camp is nearby the Silale and Lormakau marshes and is a great place for game viewing, the dry season in particular brings wildebeest, buffalo and zebra, to the marshes.
Previously a mobile camp, Oliver's retains a real back to basics, bushcamp feel with a luxurious edge. The camp boasts 10 en-suite tents with an outside shower and flush toilet. Accommodation features a private veranda and interiors that reflect the natural colours of the wilderness outside. Tents are not unnecessarily luxurious but possess all of the essential amenities and furnishings for a comfortable stay, with a king size bed and red leather arm chairs.
Dining at the lodge is an intimate affair, with communal dinners served at the main tent. The campfire is another focal point of interaction and relaxation, with daring safari tales told late at night over whisky. There is a laundry service provided and power in the lodge is supplied via solar power as well as a generator. For charging camera batteries, there are charging facilities available.
