Oliver's Fly-Camp: Our full report

From October 2019 Olivers fly-camp will no longer be operating.

Any existing bookings will be honoured and properly facilitated, but no new bookings will taken.

If you want to experience true wilderness in Tarangire National Park, then head out to Oliver's Fly-Camp. This is set up just for you and can be booked in combination with nights in the main camp.Sleep in small dome tents, dine under the stars and spend the days on walking safaris. There is a team here who will look after you and do the cooking – so this is by no means roughing it. However if you are an intrepid traveller, the opportunity to stay away from the main camp with nothing between you and the bush shouldn't be missed.

Our view

Oliver's Fly Camp was an adventurous addition to Oliver's Camp, which unfortunately stopped operating in 2019. If you would like to find out more about fly-camping in Tanzania please do give us a call to chat to our team.

Oliver's Fly-Camp sustainability

Encouraging a balanced human-wildlife co-existence

Oliver’s Fly Camp, exclusively located in the game-dense Silale Swamps of the Tarangire National Park, offers Oliver Camp’s visitors the opportunity to spend a night away from the main camp, with local wildlife right on their doorstep. Venturing out into the savannah with nothing more than a light tent and a small crew of staff to sleep beneath the stars, surrounded by wilderness, does not only create an authentic bush camp feel for the guests, but also helps support the local community.

In this sense, meal experiences form an important sustainable aspect of the camp. Using cast iron black pots and grills, the on-site chef prepares three-course dinners which consist of traditional Maasai dishes such lamb stew served with ugali - the Kenyan version of Polenta. The fly camp not only looks to immerse tourists in an authentic Kenyan meal experience, but it also provides employment opportunities and supports local entrepreneurs. Ingredients are sourced locally from Arusha, and honey is supplied to the camp by a local women’s project.

For empowering local people, Oliver’s Fly Camp receives the support of Northern Tanzania Rangelands Initiative, fighting together to create a thriving landscape where people and wildlife co-exist.
