After breakfast you will be transferred to Arusha airport for your flight to Kuro Airstrip. On arrival you are met and transferred to Olivers Camp for the next three nights. It’s a camp that celebrates back-to-basics luxury in one of the most uncrowded corners of East Africa. Oliver’s Camp is situated in the remote south-eastern reaches of the Tarangire National Park. This relatively undeveloped park – celebrated by safari travellers looking to head a little off the beaten track – offers a welcome respite from the crowds of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater to the north.
Tarangire boasts large herds of elephant and buffalo, plus a large concentration of big cats and arguably the best bird diversity in East Africa with more than 500 species. But there’s more to Tarangire than the game and birds. This rugged landscape offers a unique safari backdrop that transforms from rolling grasslands and vibrant swamps to forests of enigmatic baobab trees; according to legend, planted ‘upside down’ for growing too tall and proud.
Your stay will include then opportunity to do morning, afternoon and night drives in an open game-viewing vehicle – this lets you sit at different levels and gives everyone a ‘window’ seat.
You’ll also have the opportunity to experience a walking safari, a specialty of Oliver’s. One of the experienced and highly knowledgeable guides and an armed national park ranger allow you to discover the most remote parts of Tarangire.
