Like the other tented camps we stayed at in Kenya and Tanzania, Oliver's is beautifully set out with a welcoming lounge area and dining area. We saw heaps of amazing wildlife on our drives from here including more brods than anywhere else we travelled. However the heat was intense and the tsetse flies plain awful. Our tent was not sited under trees and therefore was uncomfortably hot during the day so there was nowhere to escape the heat (I got heat stroke).
The fly-camping and walking safari experiences were absolutely brilliant. Being in the middle of nowhere with just a tent, a roaring campfire and camp staff and of course the wildlife was exhilarating and I recommend it as an awesome experience. We had a lion roar right behind us while watching the sunset - a real adrenalin rush!!! Our guide Onno had a gun so we probably were never in danger but it was a buzz!
