We went on our first Safari trip and Little Oliver's was our first -- and by far our best -- stop. We had such a great experience there that we wondered why we were bothering to go anywhere else. We stayed 3 nights, with a walking safari and fly camping on the middle night. The permanent tent was spectacular -- especially the outdoor shower with great views over the bush. Food also very good -- quite a surprise to us out in the middle of the bush!
But for us, what really made this such a great experience was the atmosphere -- friendly, efficient and informative people all around us. Angel and Alex were a great management team, but all of the other people there were wonderful and we really enjoyed talking to them in front of the campfire and during the times we were back in the camp.
Needless to say, our days out on the bush were incredible--mainly because our guide, Richard Joseph, was so engaging, interesting, informative and incredibly patient with us. When we were met at the airstrip, Richard's previous group raved about him being "the best guide ever" -- we weren't disappointed! We saw so many animals on our first morning with him, that we felt we should start paying more attention to birds. Richard's ability to spot them at a distance, and then identify them, was truly amazing -- we never tired of looking at them. And, we did keep seeing many different animals throughout our 3 days there.
Altogether an incredible experience, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Little Oliver's to anyone!
