Oliver's Camp

Discover Africa, just as it should be. Oliver’s Camp – in the remote southern reaches of Tarangire National Park – has just 10 beautifully appointed safari tents in a spectacular location close to the game-dense Silale Swamps and overlooking a flood plain of the Minyonyo Pools.

Oliver’s was inspired by the trailblazing camps that pioneered the early days of safari. It gives you direct access to the dense concentration of wildlife you will find year-round in this remote region, as well as the chance to enjoy walking safaris. Oliver’s is intimate and personal, staffed by a world-class team that has worked together for many years to perfect a safari experience that guests consistently rank among their best. Families with children aged five and older are warmly welcomed in Oliver’s Camp. Established by Paul Oliver in 1992, Oliver’s reflects the glory days of African safaris. The camp has a low-key simplicity enhanced by discreet creature comforts and truly welcoming hosts. Expert guides give you access to the wilderness beyond. In the main area, deep comfy sofas invite you to relax and watch the restless wilderness beyond. Come nightfall, meals are taken communally in the dining room. Whiskies are poured around the campfire and safari tales told late into the night.

Oliver’s 10 en-suite safari tents epitomize bush elegance in a spectacular setting: blood-red leather armchairs match the ochre soils beyond the canvas walls, and headboards are hand-carved from African mahogany. All suites come complete with flushing toilets, spacious indoor and outdoor showers. Private verandas have magnificent views of the horizon punctuated by the silhouettes of the ever-present baobab trees. Accommodation includes one family tent (sleeps four) and a honeymoon suite.
Guest Tent - 2 people

There are ten luxury tents at Oliver's Camp in total. The tents have the option of being twins or doubles. There are two triple tents available on request. The tents all feature king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms with a lovely outdoor shower, with views of the surrounding area. Fully plumbed running water and flush loos. Hot water is always available and provided by solar heaters. The tents at Oliver's have thatched roofs and private wooden decks with day beds.

Family Tent - 4 people

Oliver's Camp features one family tent specifically designed to accommodate two adults and two children. Larger than the usual tents, the emphasis here is on creating enough space to accommodate a family without it feeling cramped. These tents have king-sized, double or single beds available for individual guest needs. There is a bathroom with flushable toilets and an outdoor shower looking onto the surrounding views.

Game Drives

With a reputation for fantastic guiding, Oliver’s game drives take you to the heart of the action every time. Drives are offered twice daily in the cooler mornings and evenings. Most of our game drives make are in an open game-viewing vehicle – this lets you sit at different levels and gives everyone a ‘window’ seat. Our open vehicles have power points where you can recharge your devices, and are fitted with fridges to keep your drinks deliciously frosty. We do also have a closed game-viewing vehicle that may be used if available which is fitted with a cooler box for chilled beverages. Private vehicles are available at an additional cost. (Note that families with children under 12 must book a private game-viewing vehicle.)

Night Game Drives

There’s also the opportunity to see some of Tanzania’s famous ‘nightlife’, with unforgettable night drives permitted within Tarangire.

Walking safari

Walking is the absolute speciality of Oliver's Camp. The privilege of walking in these natural areas gives you an exhilarating feeling of adventure. Although you'll usually get close to large mammals such as elephant, giraffe, buffalo or even lion, walking safaris are very safe. The experienced guides at Oliver's Camp and an armed national park ranger will accompany you on every walk. Walking safaris can take an hour or a whole morning or afternoon.

Family safari

You’ll find Oliver’s Camp in the remote south-eastern reaches of the Tarangire National Park. It’s perfect for families with a longing for adventure. Oliver’s Camp can accommodate a family of up to 4 with children 5 years and over. Your family will stay in a comfortable tent with en suite facilities and an outside bucket shower. Game viewing at Oliver’s is excellent and includes game drives (night and day) and walking safaris in the company of superb guides.

Twende Porini

Twende Porini is Asilia's flagship environmental and community program. Every year a group of children from local communities in the areas surrounding the camps are hosted for five days in one of our camps where they learn about wildlife and the environment. Lessons are combined with games and fun activities, including playing sports, talent shows, and storytelling to help the children learn about sustainable tourism and conservation, and the benefits that these have for them and their families. Check out the video HERE.
