Our family visited Olivers just prior to Xmas 2013, 17-19th Dec. 3 things make this place precious. 1) The People. From Jackie and Justin to all the staff it is very special. Our teenagers loved Blessed, one of the most knowledgeable persons on Africa any of us have ever met (animals/plants or otherwise). 2) The Service. From the food to the 'bush television' drinks, it is extraordinarily welcoming and open. The night cameras gave everyone additional insights, (no Honey Badgers this time for us). The crew who got us out when we got stuck in the safari mud were just hilarious. Talk about enthusiasm and swift action! 3) The Ambiance. The place feels and sounds like the Africa you might hope for. You are right amongst nature, birdsong and night-sounds. The layout of the camp and style encourages you to be a 'natural' part of this experience. In short, this is an experience for all ! While this camp may 'peak' in terms of animal density at other times of year as some of the animals migrate further North or out of the park at/after the short rains, there is no shortage of interest. Would love to return and spend more time, maybe as part of a 2 stop tour in Tarangire (north and south). The beauty of the park is hard to put into words. Vast elephant herds, giraffe and beautiful baobab trees make it very special indeed. Worth supporting the camp charity/environmental project too. It looks very forward thinking as well as crucial to the ecosystem.
