Oliver's Camp, Asilia Africa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 October 2012

Oliver's is in the southern part of Tarangire, which separates it from the majority of the camps in this park. It takes a little longer to get there, but then there are fewer vehicles to jockey with for game viewing. The hosts are very attentive and the meals are communal. We encountered some of our fellow guests later in our safari, and it was like running into friends again. Safety is clearly a priority but when we had an elephant circle the dining tent during lunch, we certainly had a memory worth saving, and savoring.

- The Camp manager Ken picked us up at the Tarangire airstrip, and every one else on our flight went to other vehicles, so we had the most amazing personal first safari before going to the camp. We even saw Wild Dogs.
- Oliver's camp is fantastic, the accommodations, Ken & Michelle really made us feel welcome and like everything we saw on our drives or walks were important. The staff, from Andrew who looked after us with wake up calls, our room, and evening escorts was so friendly, the rest of the staff were so great... you never told us we would put on weight, food was fantastic!
- The guides; Mizanga our driver, and Alex our walking guide were not only informative, but had amazing eyes, told us such great stories and history, and we all had a lot of laughs.
- Highlight included our first day and not being able to return to our tent because a group of elephants were on the trail, or just sitting on our little deck and watching the elephant troops wander across the valley in front of us.
- We were really sad to leave our first camp, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back their again... Tarangire is stunning!!!!

Came to Oliver's as the first stop on safari having climbed Kilimanjaro. Fantastic camp - amazing wildlife and exemplary hospitality and amenities. The walking safari a definite highlight of the trip.
Will definitely recommend to others. Thanks!

This luxury camp is situated outside of the Tarangire National Park when coming from Arusha. When we were there the usual managers had taken a break and Tania was their replacement. She is everything a manager should be, welcoming, warm, instructive, full of personality and a leader. The tents were clean and comfortable. They in fact do your washing for you as part of the price you pay. Nice touch. The eating facilities are very welcoming and gives you a chance to meet fellow travelers, firstly over drinks and nibbles (free) and then over a delicious dinner cooked to perfection. The same applies to breakfast. The lunch boxes supplied to us were also delicious. It is a privilege to stay here and when you leave you will not regret paying for this service.

Room Tip: Ask for a tent as close as possible to the dining area

My husband and I went there for 2 nights and really loved it. It is very high end but you are really out in the bush with all the wonderful game around you. I was so sad to have had to say goodbye but hope to come back one day.

My daughter and I stayed 2 nights at Oliver's camp in Tarangire. The camp has all the amenities of a luxury hotel and yet it is in the middle of wilderness. Every little details inside the cabin tent are well thought of. The service and attention that the staff provide to each guest room are fabulous. The food is also very good. The outdoor shower is the best thing. The walking safari is worth to pay extra for, after all the times traveling by car for safari drive.
I recommend Oliver's camp.
