Things to Do at Oliver's Camp

Oliver’s is the destination for those who really want to experience everything. We offer a range of activities, from walking through the park to exploring it at night.

Game drives

Our game drives depart first thing in the morning and late in the afternoon, when the temperatures are cooler and animals are more active. We use open-sided vehicles where everyone has a window seat. They even have power points and fridges, to keep your cameras charged and drinks chilled. Please enquire if you are interested in booking a private vehicle, ideal for those who have special interests. Please note that families with children under 12 must be in a private vehicle. 

Night drives

At Oliver’s, we have the opportunity to head out into the park at night. You can stay out later if you’ve spotted something interesting or head back into the bush after dinner to spot nocturnal animals. Our vehicles are equipped with powerful spotlights to make sure you don’t miss a thing. 

Walking safaris

Our expert guides, accompanied by an armed national park ranger for safety, lead fascinating walking safaris that allow you to stop and examine the small things — ants, termites, dung beetles — often overlooked on a drive. Try your hand at tracking by learning to identify animal spoor and dung. And you might even have the thrilling experience of passing right by some of Tarangire’s larger animals. 

Hot-air balloon trips

For romance, drama and excitement, it doesn’t get better than a sunrise flight in a hot-air balloon. Sail across the plains, spotting wildlife and watching the dawn light illuminate the grasslands below. Hot-air balloon trips are at extra cost and are weather dependent. Booking is essential.
