During our safari trip to Serengeti and surrounds, we stayed in four tented camps and Oliver's was the best. The rave reviews are justified. The dinner was top notch. The food would do justice to a 4 (our of 5) star restaurant. Breakfast was quite good, with a hot egg item provided. Remember that this is tented camp deep inside... More

Oliver's Camp was a unique experience. I enjoyed the "family style" dining experience, giving us a chance to listen to others' experiences and getting to know who is in the camp. Jackie and Jason are so welcoming and engaging. I felt that if I needed something, they would try to help. Food was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beds... More

Visited Olivers Camp in Tarangire over New Years, had an absolutely fantastic time! The camp is great, big and spacious tents and the most amazing out door showers, the tents are also far enough from each other so you have privacy. The managers are great there, very attentive and very knowledgeable. The staff and guides at the camp are also... More

Love the outdoor showers, attentive service and super-comfortable tents. Excellent guided walking opportunities too - amazing way to see this beautiful national park. My guides Milton and Josh had very impressive naturalist knowledge and contagious enthusiasm. Incredible place and people - definitely going back!!

Oliver's Camp was my first stop on my first-ever safari and I was immediately blown away. The location is beautiful, with an incredible view over a valley which is constantly offering a peek at one group of animals or another making their way to the river. Justin and Jackie were great hosts, very kind and accommodating and I immediately felt... More

We spent 3 nights at Oliver's camp and would gladly have stayed longer. We were met at the airstrip by our marvellous guide Joshua who took us straight on a fantastic drive, cheetahs/lions/amazing birds etc with a stop for a scrumptious picnic lunch with a lovely view - we had only arrived from the UK that morning but were quickly...

The 'J' team of Jackie, Justin and Joshua combined to make our 3 day visit one of the highlights of this holiday. Jackie and Justin are the perfect host and hostess, Joshua an excellent guide, spotter and companion. The ambiance is warm and friendly but highly professional. Every need is anticipated before you know you have it! Then there's the... More

Sorry to say that Little Oliver’s was the low point in our trip. The manager, Alex, is intrusive and a real detriment, unfortunately. He insists on sitting with you at every meal and expounding on his views. We could hardly wait to get away from him. We also had a tent with a terrible sewer smell. Once we switched tents,... More

What can I say! Olivers is one of my fav camps on my Kenya and Tanzania safari. Justin and Jackie were amazing hosts and definitely made me feel at home. I really enjoyed the the communal dinning and being able to meet the rest of the guests (being a solo traveller this was a great perk!). It looked like everyone... More
