~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. The luxurious accommodations at Oliver’s are of course spectacular but the best part is the friendly staff and wonderful location. Every employee we encountered made us feel welcomed and important. The value here can... More

This was my lucky 2nd visit to this most wonderful property deep in the Tarangire National Park. So happy to see Jackie, the Camp Manager, smiling face and experience her most welcoming personality again. The waitstaff cannot be generous with their service and smiles. They really become friends you don't want to leave! The food is outrageous and this time... More

Oliver's camp has most delicious cuisine and wines. Really, the food was exquisite--and we are foodies from a big city. We felt pampered beyond belief by manager Mark and the staff. Special memories--watching the elephants below us at sunset, with drinks in hand--wonderful dinners and stimulating conversations at the communal table with fellow travelers from around the world.

We stayed here for two nights after having visited the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. We drove into Tarangire National Park and immediately were blown away by the scenery: red gravel roads, gigantic Baobab trees, a beautiful swamp area with lush green colours, and mountains when looking to the other side. A true 'Out of Africa' feeling we also experienced... More

Very middle of the nature and be prepared to sleep with lions or elephants everynight. No wi-fi, no mobile signal, complete darkness and wildness at night. 90 minutes away from the airstrip and probably hours from nearest facility. I haven't feel the same in Serengeti. So if you are ok with that nothing to say bad about camp, perfect staff,... More

We spent 2 nights at the beginning of our family safari. The location is very good, deep within the Tarangire park and allows early morning game drives, very close to the best park area. The food at Oliver's camp is fantastic and the staff will make everything they can to make you happy. Highly recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Discover Africa, just as it should be. Oliver's Camp - in the remote southern reaches of Tarangire National Park - has just 10 beautifully appointed safari tents in a spectacular location close to the game-dense Silale Swamps and overlooking a flood plain of the Minyonyo Pools. Oliver's was inspired by the trailblazing camps that pioneered the early days of safari. It gives you direct access to the dense concentration of wildlife you will find year-round in this remote region, as well as the chance to enjoy walking safaris and fly camping. Oliver's is intimate and personal, staffed by a world-class team that has worked together for many years to perfect a safari experience that guests consistently rank among their best. ... more   less
