Although we weren't originally slated to be here, I'm glad we ended up this far into the park. Being near a "water feature" on a safari is great as so many interesting things are happening. Oliver's is near the large swamp and is very accessible by flight from Arusha if you don't want to do the drive in and out of the park. Ken and Michelle were great; they even had electrical tape to mend my son's glasses broken on day 3 of the vacation. Although there are no outlets in the tents, you could give your "electronics" to either of them and they would charge them for you up at the office and give them to you a few hours later. The family style dining is nice, folks are typically there for 2-3 days and everyone is excited. The campfire & drinks before dinner is really nice too. The "tents" are terrific even if the toilet is not fully enclosed from the room (there is a short half wall for some privacy. And the "outside bucket shower" is really just a slight joke. Although it does look like a bucket, it's actually great water pressure as hot as you want it, and open to the sky. We loved it.
