One kilometre away from its big brother, in the centre of the Tarangire National Park, Little Oliver’s Camp is a more intimate home for guests seeking greater solitude and quiet.
Small and decadent, Little Oliver’s main thatched area is open and airy, allowing daylight and cool breezes in. At night it’s the perfect spot to pull up a leather chair from the lounge and watch the stars blazing along the twisting stretch of the Milky Way.
With only 5 tented-suites, this is possibly the most exclusive camp of its kind. The interiors have been hand carved from pieces of traditional boats that traded the land in forgotten times. The mahogany floors, plush beds and pinned ceilings create an ambience of space, tranquillity and harmonise with the marshes that are in full view of the tent. Each suite has a bathroom with flushing toilet, indoor and outdoor showers and hot water, so that you’ll never have to sacrifice your comfort. Children over 5 are welcome at the camp, where they’ll love the activities, space and bountiful creatures of the Tarangire.
Wildlife & Activities
The flood plains of the Minyonyo are a great place to start your game viewing. Here, throughout the year you’re bound to come across a full gambit of roosting birds, as well as a surplus of mammals in the winter seasons. Herds flock here when the water dries up in other parts of the Serengeti. Game drives lead you into the hidden nooks and crannies of the Tarangire, where the game live unhindered by humans.
Night drives teach you how to see in the dark, sharpening your senses like no other experience. Bush walks place your feet on the earth, feeling the contours of the ground the way the animals themselves experience them. Fly camping gives you a thrilling chance to sleep in true wilderness, whilst hot air balloon rides lift you into the heavens for unbeatable views of the Tarangire National Park. You may desire solitude, excitement or rejuvenation, but at Little Oliver’s you get it all.
