We stayed at Oliver's Camp for 2 nights in late February 2017 as part of a two week safari with the Wild Source. The Asilia Camps are high quality camps, the staff were professional and helpful. It is quite a ways from the park entrance to get into Oliver's Camp, but the wildlife along the way in (especially the elephants)...

Large comfortable tent with primo outdoor shower (indoor shower as well). Viewing platform at lodge. Friendly staff and great food. You can't believe the number and variety of animals we saw at Tarangire National Park. (up close and personal). Thank you TrueAfrica and Asilia!

Dear Janet, It was lovely to host you and our family here and we are extremely happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay here with us. Tarangire truly is a hidden gem with such diverse wild life and it was good for you to flycamp – right in the wilderness of it all. Till next time, Team Oliver’s

On arriving we were greeted by Tanzanian Host Dickson, who was brilliant. One of the first things he told us was that Oliver’s Camp was all about community and sharing meals and experiences with other travellers in the lodge. We found this to be a real winner, given the other lodges we stayed at people were a little more isolated...

A great wilderness tented camp. You are warned not to keep any food in your tent as the honey badgers will break in to eat it. The camp site looks west over a valley. Sunsets from their viewing deck are great - served with the your drink of choice. The campfire before dinner caps the day off well. Our tent...

Many thanks for your review and we are so glad you had no break-in’s. You were very obedient in handing over your ‘contraband’. The sun downer deck is a wonderful addition – nothing beats a nice beverage whilst watching the sun go down. Hope you will have fond memories whilst looking through your pictures. Team Oliver’s

Jackie and her staff at Oliver's Camp were simply amazing! This was our first camp/lodge stop during our Safari, that we planned via Planet Africa Safaris. This camp was wonderful given its rural location, deep inside Tarangire National Park. It is set in a beautiful locale, with lodge and room views so close to the animals. The rooms are clean,...

I will preface my review by saying Oliver’s was the first of a 3 Asilia-camp stay on safari over 9 days for my wife and I. As many have written, this is a very special place and upon reflection, it was probably our favourite camp of our entire trip. THE PEOPLE: Our guide was George, a young, energetic, positive and...

We stayed here for one night in February (too short of a stay) and it was wow! This was one of the most amazing places we have stayed at. The food, service, rooms - all perfection. The outdoor shower was incredible. We already talking about when we can come back here!
