With just five en-suite safari tents in a magnificent location deep in Tarangire National Park – one of the most magnificent places in Africa for game viewing – Little Oliver’s is intimate, personal and small enough to call your own.
Delicious meals and drinks are served under canvas in the spacious dining area at the heart of the camp. While away the afternoon in the separate mess tent – a wonderful spot to sit back, relax and watch the never-ending ebb and flow of wildlife on your doorstep.
Our home-made gourmet-style food is quite delicious. Because of the early start for morning game drives, breakfast is a satisfying spread. The menu includes cereals, muesli, fruit, yoghurt, French toast, eggs, bacon, sausage and occasionally a cheese board. The buffet lunch is accompanied by a variety of salads followed by dessert. Dinners are a delectable three-course affair. If you’d like to eat in the bush, you can request a packed breakfast or lunch to take with you in the morning, or choose a bush breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements – our camp chefs will be happy to cater for your needs.
Tucked discreetly into the landscape, Little Oliver’s is visited by much of the wildlife that lives in this region. Look out for:
- Spotted hyena
- African wild dog (rare)
The very best time for rewarding game viewing is in the cooler early mornings and late afternoons, when the animals are at their most active. Depending on the season, your day may start slightly earlier or later, but the general pace of life in camp is focused on giving you the very best possible game-viewing experience. If you have booked a private game-viewing vehicle do discuss personal schedule preferences with your guide.
