Don't expect four season style luxuries... who cares at the end of the day when you're in the bush.. olivers provides the best of everything, either that's service, tents, food, security, you name it. I'd go back in a NY second. Great experience. I wouldn't suggest to stay more than 2-3 nights. That amount of time is more than enough

Dear Alex and Loli, Thank you very much for your candid review – it is so true – Oliver’s Camp is really an authentic bush experience. We describe it as, nothing more but nothing less, meaning you have all the basic creature comforts but without all the extra frills. We are very happy to see you enjoyed your experience here...

Such a lovely review – many thanks. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us as well as our tents and bush cuisine. It is so true – having no wifi is great as it really allows you to disconnect. Hope to have you back again! Jacky and Team Oliver’s

I loved Oliver's Camp and felt very at home at there. I enjoyed sitting on the deck with coffee and hot chocolate watching the elephants in the distance. The facility was clean and the staff was super. I enjoyed watching bush TV round the fire with an Olivers Twist to drink. The food was fantastic.

I come from a bush upbringing and have always done self-drive Safaris. I have been driving through Africa for 8 years on my own. This is the first time I have done an organised Safari - a present to myself for my 70th! My expectations were high. After my experience of travelling for the month of November 2016 with Asilia...

One of the best places we have ever been to! Super friendly staff, excellent food, perfect location. Defininitely worth staying at. The camp has a very special atmosphere, one that is not to be found anywhere else. It was the first camp we stayed at during our safari trip through Tansania, and none of the other camps came anywhere close...

We were very happy with the accommodations, food, staff, and service at this tent camp. Everything was great. They accommodated my gluten allergy so that I actually ate too much. The views out the tents were amazing with elephants walking out in the morning and returning in the evening. The sunset balcony with drinks was also a plus as was...

~The Asililia name is gold.~ On our most recent trip to Tanzania we stayed at three different Asilia properties all of which far surpassed our expectations.
