I stayed at Oliver's camp for three nights during a two week safari. The camp moved recently to this new location in the deep south of Tarangire NP. It is away from all the crowds in a good location with a nice view and the added benefit that walking safaris are allowed. Since you're pretty much constrained to the safari vehicle the rest of the time, I enjoyed the walk along Tarangire river a lot. The camp is pretty close to Silale Swamp, maybe the most spectacular part of Tarangire, and we had a herd of elephants visiting the camp a couple of times and nightly entertainment was provided by a pair of jackals and the occasional leopard roar.
The camp is small with large tents which feature a king size bed, an additional twin size bed, an en suite bathroom with a flush toilet and a shower with 24h hot water. The common areas are very spacious and look beautiful. Food was delicious and everybody enjoyed the nightly campfire chats and drinks.
Camp staff was excellent and made me feel right at home, just like at the other two Asilia camps I visited on the trip, Dunia and Olakira.
If you're looking for a remote wilderness experience in Tarangire with the comfort of a permanent tented camp, Oliver's is as good as it gets.
