Tarangire National Park

Oliver's Camp

Overview

A timeless safari camp

Oliver’s Camp, located in Tarangire National Park, is a place for those who want to experience an adventurous safari with ample comforts.

With 15 tents, split between two wings, Oliver's is low-key and comfortable, reminiscent of the safari camps of old. Sink into one of the sofas in the lounge and dining area with a good book or keep an eye out for passing zebras and elephants from your deck. Meals are served communally in the dining tent, after gathering around the campfire for a nightcap and safari tales.

Throughout the year, Tarangire is home to large herds of elephants and buffalo and a high concentration of big cats. And this classic safari camp is in the perfect spot to explore the surrounding bush.

Community & Culture

Asilia’s vision in East Africa is for both the local people and nature to benefit from crucial wilderness areas thriving. They work with local communities and offer primary, secondary and tertiary educational scholarships. Twende Porini, meaning ‘let’s go to the bush’, is a project which takes a group of children from their villages close to the areas in which Asilia operates, to one of their camps for several days. Whilst at the camp the children are mentored by Asilia guides and staff as well as local school teachers and engage in a range of activities from lectures to game drives in order to assist their understanding for the need for conservation in the wild areas close to their communities.

Oliver’s, specifically, supports the Northern Tanzania Rangelands Initiative in Tarangire which works to ensure five priority livestock and wildlife movement corridors in the northern rangelands which will support the communities and wildlife both ecologically and economically.

Footprint

Sustainability efforts in Asilia’s camps include banning the use of cling film in their kitchens, using biodegradable lunch packs and providing guests with reusable bottles to reduce plastic water bottle waste.

Conservation

Staying at any of Asilia properties, owners of Oliver’s, sees guests automatically contributing to community and conservation projects through their park fees and a $5 per person conservation fee. By staying at Oliver’s guests are also supporting their in-house training schemes and responsible tourism efforts.
