We spent only one night at Oliver's Camp, and wished we could have stayed longer. Pricey but worth every cent. We were greeted by a friendly and attentive staff, who were waiting for us with cold facecloths and a glass of juice. Very welcome after the bumpy and broken road to get there! Farther than other camps, we were told, but worth it. Just unforgettable. Delicious food, amazing setting. Our tent faced out onto a sort of clearing, and we saw the sun set behind acacia and baobab trees. Magical!

Note: no wifi

Room Tip: Try to get tent #2 for gorgeous sunset views

The food, setting, rooms, and ambiance is just spectacular - one of the best experiences we had on Safari. Be sure to try out the guided "walking safari" from the camp. We didn't see any big game, but had a chance to explore part of the valley on foot - an experience I'll never forget.

My husband, two children and I spent two fabulous nights at Oliver's last June. It was our first stop on safari, and what a magical introduction it was. The camp is actually inside Tarangire NP so wild animals are all around. We heard elephants and lions in the night, and the bird life in the mornings was phenomenal. It's important to note that children are not allowed to walk around the camp by themselves, even in the daylight, and no one is allowed to walk alone at night. The tents are spread out, which is great for privacy, but we weren't comfortable having the children (12 and 10) that far away so we split up into adult/child pairs. This was the most wild of all the camps we stayed at, and for that I loved it. The tents were clean and the beds were comfortable. Who wouldn't love a hot water bottle at night and coffee "wake up call" in the morning? Flush toilets and sinks inside the tents; hot shower outside. The managers (sounds like they've changed since we were there) invited guests to sundowners around the campfire and offered smores to the kids. Communal meals were interesting and tasty. Good variety of food. Ask for a kitchen tour--fascinating to see how the staff prepares such elaborate meals in the bush.

My wife and two teenaged kids stayed at Oliver's camp for one night in late December. What a terrific experience. Our travel agent was "forced" to book us one night there because Treetops was full after two nights there. Oliver's has lots to offer. First, it is in the southern part of the park where, it seems, fewer visitors reach. Note, that it is IN the park, and wild life abounds near (and in) the camp ; more so than Treetops at that time of year. Second, their cocktail hour was the best we ever had given the lodge staff introducing themselves and participating in fascinating conversations. Third, the "tents" were the most gorgeous accommodations we saw in Africa and we were sorry to spend just one night in them. Fourth, we didnt see lions in the camp but we heard them close by all night (very exciting!) Finally, the walking tour was special. The guide for our walking tour was so friendly during our dinner and cocktail hour. He was tolerant of the thousand questions we asked about living and guiding in East Africa, and growing up in corrupt central African countries leading to facinating accounts of his life. The education for us (but especially our kids) was priceless. As to the walking tour, I was hoping that would be the highlight of our trip reminiscent of "out of Africa" footage. However, we didn't understand that animals view humans on foot as dangerous predators and keep far away. It was special being out in the bush without a vehicle (and two armed guides) but the experience fell short of my uninformed expectations. Oliver's provided great service ( not quite to the level of Treetops) in a more intamte setting. It is a great option for a stay in the park.

Room Tip: All the rooms are spectacular with short views overlooking the river valley.

This camp is truly a great camp. Managed by Justine and Jackeline, he is canadian and she is from South Africa. Great hosts. Dinners was served around a big nice table. The guests around it were the hosts, a couple from NY (Kevin and Donya) an English man wigth his two daughters also in a safari. The food was superb! Starter was duck pancake, main dish had asparagus (my favorit) and meat. I charged my laptop at the charging station in the main lobby. It felt like a true safari camp . We enjoyed it very very much!
