Oliver's was our first camp on our first ever safari. We arrived with preconceived expectations about what the camp would be like, mainly derived from previous trip advisor reviews and Asilia's own website. We therefore thought it would be good, but nothing could prepare us for the truly unforgettable experience we had over 3 days.
From the outset, tumbling out of the jeep after the long journey from Kilimanjaro, being met with a cool drink and cold flannel was just the 'pick us up' we needed. Justin and Jacky were patient and wonderful hosts, carefully explaining camp rules to 4 rather jet lagged safari novices!
Unforgettable for us means sitting by the campfire for pre-dinner drinks with our guide discussing the highlights of the day and plans for the next, meeting fellow guests and the hosts at dinner for lively discussions, wonderful food (incredible quality and variety), the elephant which interrupted our showering whilst he casually carried out some garden maintenance, the views through the mesh screen, and seeing the sunrise with a hot flask of coffee.
The safari drives from Oliver's were exceptional and with the location away from the main tourist trail, we enjoyed the relative tranquility and exclusivity of the area.
The camp would not be so successful without the wonderful friendly and attentive staff, so a HUGE thank you to Justin, Jacky and the team. We shall not forget or time at Oliver's as the first stage in our amazing journey!
