Oliver Camp in Tarangire National Park
Oliver’s camp, located in Tarangire National Park’s remote region, provides visitors with an ideal environment to view wildlife. Activities offered here include night game drives, guided walking safaris and fly camping inside the national park.
At this lodge, there are ten luxurious safari tents featuring spacious en-suite en suite facilities, designed with comfort in mind while not adding unnecessary extras; perhaps an outside shower might be considered indulgence!
Early Life and Education
Oliver’s Tented Camp lies in a serene corner of Tarangire’s south eastern section, perched atop a low ridge that offers magnificent wildlife viewing in this time of year. Established by Paul Oliver himself, it has long been regarded as an essential stop on Tanzania’s northern circuit due to their expert guiding services, walking safaris and fly camping offerings.
At Camp Amani, there are ten ensuite tents with twin or king beds and indoor and outdoor showers, complete with private decks.
