Established by pioneer Paul Oliver in 1992 this camp is for safari enthusiasts wanting more than the postcard-snaps of the Big Five. Set in the secluded south eastern reaches of the Tarangire National Park, it’s a camp that celebrates back-to-basics luxury in one of the most uncrowded corners of East Africa. Tarangire boasts large herds of elephant and buffalo, plus a large concentration of big cats and arguably the best bird diversity in East Africa with more than 500 species.
At Oliver’s the 10 en-suite safari tents offer bush luxury without superfluous frills; the spacious outdoor shower perhaps the one extravagance you’ll happily allow.
Come nightfall, little more than canvas separates your king-size bed from the restless wilderness beyond. Meals are taken communally at the main lodge, while around the campfire whiskies are poured and safari tales told late into the night.
Away from camp, Tarangire offers a wilderness experience that’s often lacking in the more famous reserves further north. Off-road adventures, night drives, walking safaris and wilderness ‘fly’ camps’ are all on offer in this slice of untamed Tanzania, where some of the best guides in the business lead you through a corner of Africa that offers everything from herds of buffalo to forests of baobabs.
