My husband and I spent two days at Oliver's camp on our honeymoon. I cannot say enough nice things about the managers of the camp, Ken and Michelle, as well as all the staff. The game viewing was just wonderful outside the camp and the food was incredible! Definitely worth the long drive from the entrance gate. We chose not to do the night safari but we did enjoy the walking safari and would recommend it to other travelers as it provides a nice change of pace and gave us the opportunity to see new things and experience the wildlife in quite an interesting way. We received the warmest welcome and a surprise upon arrival as newly weds and simply could not have imagined a better camp to spend part of our honeymoon. Highly highly recommend it and really worth every penny!

Exactly how you want to experience an African safari. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful, from the coffee delivered to your door in the morning to the end of the day drinks around the fire pit. I highly recommend the walking safari. Great education in the animals and ecosystem. Amazing to stay right in the middle of it all, elephant walked by our door at midnight. It was so cool. I would go back in a heart beat.

Oliver's camp was the first of our Tanzania safari, although we have enjoyed several other african safari's.
From the main gate at Tarangire Park it is quite a drive after long flight and we wished we had flown into the local airstrip.(We flew into Kilimanjaro airport, then drove to Tarangire)

However, once we reached Olivers we could relax, it is a lovely camp and as previous reviewers have said the managers Ken & Michelle are a delight and very knowledgeable. The accomadation is wonderful with amasing views, comfortable, understated luxury.

We enjoy the 'family' dining arrangements everyone discussing the highlights of their day,and sitting around the camp fire sipping the drink of choice. The food was excellent, it never cease's to amase me how the chef's manage to produce such wonderful food in 'the middle of nowehere'!!
We did a safari walk one morning which made a nice change and a couple of night drives, we saw some wildlife we had never seen before eg honey badger's, caracal,up close with genet's and chamelion.

The downside for us were the tetsy fly, we were bitten to death, very painful bites and long lasting itch!
But on the whole our stay at Oliver's was wonderful, a real friendly family atmoshere. We were then heading for Lake Manyara & Ngorongoro crater to contiue our trip.

Wow! Ken and Michelle are great people and great managers. They employ absolutely the best staff, chefs, and guides. It was great sitting on the front porch of our tent and watching elephants and waterbuck stroll by. The food was great and could be served in any of our nice restaurants at home. At mealtime guests all sat together at one table with Michelle and Ken at every meal listening to and entertaining us. One of the guests did have a problem when a honey badger invaded their outdoor shower and kept them at bay for a while. Although the showers at Oliver's are ensuite, there is one side open to the outdoors. The guides, Mesenga and Erasto, were outstanding and knowledgeable about all the wildlife and birds. This was our first game experience and everything was a wildlife highlight. We had lions roaring at night and elephants eating the brush outside our tent at night. We went on 2 night drives, which were fine, but they need to do something better about spotting wildlife in the dark (perhaps a spotlight on each side of the vehicle instead of a single handheld light with the spotter).

My wife and I stayed at Oliver's Camp on our honeymoon and everything about our stay was perfect. Rooms (well, tents) were spectacularly well appointed given that we were in the middle of nowhere. The lounge area, dining hall and fire pit were wonderfully put together and gave the camp a warm friendly feeling that brought all the guests together, and the food was always incredible. But, the most amazing feature of Oliver's Camp was the view. Sat in a lounger outside our room we could see families of elephants walking across the valley to a nearby watering hole. Later in the day we watched them come back. How many places can offer that?

Managers Ken and Michelle were a delight. Professional wildlife photographers both, they were warm, friendly and shared stories of working in the bush, the changing wildlife photography business and offered us tips on giving our own photos a boost. They even arranged for a welcome bottle of chilled prosecco to be in our room on our arrival as a honeymoon treat.
