Oliver's Camp was given a major overhaul in April/May 2010, so we were some of the first guests to stay at the "new" Oliver's camp. "Incredible" is an understatement! The tents are wonderfully appointed, with large bathrooms and, in our case, showers both in and outside! No more bush showers - each tent has running water and a flushing toilet. Our favourite area was the new mess. It has a beautifully thatched roof, a large table for communal dining, and is scattered with plush armchairs, interesting artifacts, and books. Just beyond is the firepit where drinks are served at sundown. The food was delicious and the staff were great.
When we visited Oliver's, most of the game was slightly north, so we had to drive a fair bit to see most of the wildlife we saw, and unlike the Masai Mara (Kenya) and parts of the Serengeti, you are not allowed to drive off-road in Tarangire (to get closer to the animals). That said, we saw plenty of amazing creatures including thousands of elephant, three cheetah, and a few leopard (among others).
We loved our stay at Oliver's and would highly recommend it!
