Located in the remote south-eastern sector of Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park, Little Oliver’s Camp is set downstream from its famous sister, Oliver’s Camp. 

This intimate and exclusive camp overlooks a floodplain of the Minyonyo Pools that form part of the Tarangire River system, and provides safari and wildlife enthusiasts the perfect location from which to enjoy every facet of this incredible ecosystem. This uncrowded sector of the park boasts habitats ranging from open grassland to forests of ancient baobabs, and is home to large herds of buffalo and elephant as well as a substantial population of big cats. Game drives and walks with highly skilled guides give you the opportunity to enjoy thrilling wildlife encounters in a region that is known not only for its abundance of game but also for its ruggedly beautiful landscapes, making it a paradise for photographers. 

With only five tented suites, Little Oliver’s Camp guarantees an intimate and authentic experience, and it can be taken over on an exclusive basis for families or a group of friends. Perfect for experienced safari goers who wish to experience something different to the usual destinations, or for first-time visitors wanting to immerse themselves in a true African wilderness, Little Oliver’s is the ideal blend of comfortable lodgings, excellent guides and service in a truly remarkable wildlife region.

Facilities

The large mess building at Little Oliver’s Camp is beautifully crafted from timber and thatch, and quirky décor features include sculptural elements made from a reclaimed sailing dhow. The building houses an elegantly furnished dining area and lounge that leads out onto the front decking terrace, which in turn leads down to the fireplace, where many evenings are spent in languid conversations while gazing at the glittering canopy of stars.

Traveller Reviews

  • We had an amazing time. Everything worked out great. We saw far more animals than I could of imagined and so close up. Our guide Mohammed, from Timeless Dream Travels, was excellent. He had such respect for the animals while picking up right away on what and how we wanted our adventure to go. We loved Tarangarie and Little Olivers was perfect, the views from each room were amazing.
