More than the wildlife, which was literally everywhere, the staff at Oliver's made the experience. Jacky is the bomb; funny, competent and warm, and she has a staff there that shines with truly personal care. It was the first of four Asilia camps that we used and it could not possibly have been better.

Dear Richard, Many thanks for writing us this review. We are pleased to see you enjoyed all the various Asilia properties you visited. You are right – Tarangire is truly an elephant haven and our location is perfect as we have the river in front of camp – so being on the viewing deck with a sundowner in hand is...

Don't expect four season style luxuries... who cares at the end of the day when you're in the bush.. olivers provides the best of everything, either that's service, tents, food, security, you name it. I'd go back in a NY second. Great experience. I wouldn't suggest to stay more than 2-3 nights. That amount of time is more than enough

We stayed here for 2 nights and LOVED every minute of it here. The tents are very spacious and have great views from the extremely comfortable big bed. Also loved the outdoor shower.

Such a lovely review – many thanks. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us as well as our tents and bush cuisine. It is so true – having no wifi is great as it really allows you to disconnect. Hope to have you back again! Jacky and Team Oliver’s

I loved Oliver's Camp and felt very at home at there. I enjoyed sitting on the deck with coffee and hot chocolate watching the elephants in the distance. The facility was clean and the staff was super. I enjoyed watching bush TV round the fire with an Olivers Twist to drink. The food was fantastic.

I come from a bush upbringing and have always done self-drive Safaris. I have been driving through Africa for 8 years on my own. This is the first time I have done an organised Safari - a present to myself for my 70th! My expectations were high. After my experience of travelling for the month of November 2016 with Asilia...

The camp has a very special atmosphere, one that is not to be found anywhere else.

We were very happy with the accommodations, food, staff, and service at this tent camp. Everything was great. They accommodated my gluten allergy so that I actually ate too much.

~The Asililia name is gold.~ On our most recent trip to Tanzania we stayed at three different Asilia properties all of which far surpassed our expectations. The luxurious accommodations at Oliver’s are of course spectacular but the best part is the friendly staff and wonderful location. Every employee we encountered made us feel welcomed and important.
