This was our first trip to Africa and the first camp we stayed in. The staff at the camp was very knowledgeable about the terrain and the animals. They were very accommodating for all of our needs and the camp manager Michelle was a great hostess. We felt the food was good and the campfire and meeting all of the... More

Only stayed one night. Lovely hospitality and great food. Very nice thatched roof and canvas walled suites on raised platforms. The external shower is a great experience as is the isolation of each suite. You can only charge cameras etc in the lobby but that was ok. Drinks at sunset around a fire watching stars appear in the cool of... More

Justin manages a wonderful camp at Olivers. All in all, our Africa trip was one of the best vacations ever - and Oliver's camp was one of the highlights. The tents were comfortable and peaceful. The wildlife sitings were outstanding. The food was very good, and great wine. The game drivers were extremely capable, smart and fun to be with.... More

Jackie and Justin were remarkable hosts! The camp is spectacular - the get all the details correct. Freshly french pressed coffee in the tent with a wake up call, amazing food, plenty of hot water! We have stayed at remarkable properties all over the world - they could all learn something from Oliver's!

This is a fantastic camp with great accommodations, great food and excellent hospitality. I highly recommend staying here and please note that you should book at a least 1 year in advance else you would most probably not be able to secure a room.

A very welcoming experience for our first safari. Having never really camped or stayed in the bush - we were slightly apprehensive when we arrived. The team were very friendly and the manager Alex and Abel (Asst Man) were both easy going, friendly and provided good banter. The food was great - fresh and plentiful and we looked forward to...

Oliver's was our first stop of our safari in Tanzania and we stayed for 2 nights. It was absolutely amazing! Jackie and Justin are just the ultimate hosts! They are so genuine and kind - always inquiring about your plans for the day and sharing their experiences from the Camp and other travels. They are so welcoming and happy to... More

My husband and I stayed at 3 Asilia properties during our Tanzanian safari adventure and Oliver's was our favourite. I think a lot of it has to do with the warm and welcoming nature of it's hosts Jackie and Justin. They welcome you into their "home" and make you feel like the most special guests. Our stay was in tent... More

Jackie & Justin team hats off to you guys. I still remember the food. Best hummus I have had in Africa. Great accommodations and loved the outdoor shower. But please do not take a shower after dark as bugs are waiting. Our stay was excellent and like the fact that there is no wifi. We really had family time because... More

My husband and I stayed in Oliver's camp for just 1 night of our safari honeymoon around Tanzania. In hindsight we wish we had stayed for longer as it was the highlight of all the accommodations we visited - and we had done our homework using trip advisor to select each one. The hosts Jackie and Justin were very welcoming... More
