Little Oliver's Camp

Little Oliver's Camp

Although Little Oliver’s Camp may be remote and secluded, it is anything but boring. Guests in search of a camp off the beaten path are sure to be ecstatic over Little Oliver’s Camp, a safari destination tucked into the southeastern corner of Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park. Safari-goers may have heard of the main camp (Oliver’s Camp), but just a mile down the road is an even more exclusive camp featuring five luxury tents and a shared dining and relaxation area. Perfect for families or groups traveling together, Little Oliver’s is sure to provide an unforgettable safari experience.

Awake each morning and meander out to your own private deck overlooking a flood plain of the Minyoyo Pools that form part of the Tarangire river system. Relax and observe the diversity of wildlife on display before taking your outdoor shower (or indoor, if you prefer!). Enjoy room amenities such as furniture handmade from reclaimed dhows (East African coastal trading ships), en-suite bath, dressing table, crisp linens, and expansive deck with magnificent views.

As exciting as a game drive is, the professional guides and trackers at Little Oliver’s recommend walking safaris for the most memorable experiences. Easy morning walks introduce guest to tracks, spoor, flora, and fauna while three-day wilderness adventures provide opportunities to encounter the bush and some of Africa’s most spectacular mammals at close range—with your armed guide next to you, of course. Other popular activities include off-road adventures, night drives, and wilderness “fly camps.”

Year-round game viewing in Tarangire is exceptional, and guests can expect to see large herds of elephant and buffalo as well as impressive families of big cats. Bird species abound, with over 500 different species recorded. Wildlife isn’t the only natural wonder on display, so be sure to photograph the landscapes of rolling grasslands, vibrant swamps, and baobab forests.
