I live in NYC and have traveled to Africa many times, including multiple trips to the bush. Oliver's Camp rates as my top bush experience -- and this is going up against very high end lodges such as Londolozi in South Africa.
The camp is intimate, with "permanent" tents, which gives an open air experience with the comfort of luxury appointments. The food and service could not have been more terrific, and our guide was truly exceptional (which is the most critical part of any bush experience). Tarangire offers a truly dense population of many species, including a massive population of elephants. The hosts are laid back -- available but not intrusive. The only downside was the quality of wine. Bearable, but off the mark for the quality of everything else.
