Activities at Little Oliver's
There is nothing quite like gliding serenely over the vast plains of the Tarangire as the wildlife teems below, on a romantic and evocative balloon safari.
You’ll find Little Olivers Camp in the remote south-eastern reaches of the Tarangire National Park. It’s pioneer country and perfect for families with a spirit for adventure. Little Oliver’s Camp welcomes a family of 4 with children 5 years and over. Your family will be accommodated in a comfortable tent with en-suite facilities and a ‘true-blue’ outside bucket shower. Guiding at Little Oliver’s is unsurpassed and includes game drives (night and day), walking safaris and ‘fly camping’ outside your comfort zone.
Fly & Bush Camping
The fly camp is typically booked as part of a walking safari or simply as an exclusive and private night away from the main camp. This small and intimate lightweight camp is a fantastic experience for those seeking something a little more adventurous.
Game drives are offered twice daily from Little Oliver’s in open-sided game-viewing vehicles. Our highly skilled guides will share their detailed understanding of this wilderness and all its creatures, both great and small. All vehicles have power points where you can recharge your devices, and are fitted with fridges to keep your drinks deliciously frosty.
Night Game Drives
When darkness falls, enjoy a night game drive and look for the nocturnal animals of Tarangire with a powerful spotlight, or simply turn off the engine and enjoy the stillness of the dark African night.
Walking is the absolute specialty of Little Oliver's Camp. The privilege of walking in these natural areas gives you an exhilarating feeling of adventure. Although you'll usually get close to large mammals such as elephant, giraffe, buffalo or even lion, walking safaris are very safe. The experienced guides of Little Oliver's Camp and an armed national park ranger will accompany you on every walk. Walking safaris can take an hour or a whole morning or afternoon, but combined with fly camping, they can take several days, letting you discover the most remote parts of Tarangire.
