Overview

With only 10 tents available, Oliver's delivers exclusivity in an area famous for its large numbers of elephants and big cats, while its wetland location means an extensive bird list.

Rooms

Family Tent

Situated a kilometre down the river with views of the Minyonyo Pools are an additional five luxury tents known as Little Oliver’s Camp. Large decks give you ample space to witness the wildlife wandering to these pools. The furniture in each tent is beautifully constructed from reclaimed wood. Look up at the stars above you in the outdoor shower (there is also an indoor one).

A communal area offers your group the chance to relax and dine together away from the other guests of the Oliver’s Camp. Though intimate in size, there is plenty of space, thus making the camp a perfect option for a small group of friends or large family.

Standard Tent

Oliver's Camp has only 10 spacious tents to allow for utmost privacy and exclusivity. Located alongside a permanent wetland and with excellent views, each thatch-covered tent features solid wooden furniture and en suite bathroom facilities that are straddle the interior and exterior, creating a unique experience.

Each tent also has a pair of sun loungers and a radio to contact the office if you need to. Mosquito spray, a torch and a digital safe are also provided - batteries can be recharged at the main office.

Facilities

There are a number of game viewing activities offered at Oliver's Camp - 4X4 game drives with expert guides, guided walking safaris and fly-camping in locations away from the main lodge.

But it's not all about game viewing: after the excitement of the day, guests can relax at Oliver's in leather armchairs in the main lounge or settle down in the library tent with a book or just get cosy at the fireplace with a refreshing sundowner drink.

Dining

The food at Oliver's Camp is an array of excellently prepared homemade fare with a casual buffet-style breakfast and lunch served in the communal dining area which allows you to converse with your fellow travellers, share stories of animal sightings and get to know your hosts.

Dinners on the other hand are intimate and served banquet-style, offering high quality delicious food paired with fine wines.

Bryony Cowie

"I think the best camp was Oliver’s with delicious food. Bryony and Michael couldn’t leave their lodge on the last morning because 8 elephants were outside – that was such fun!"

David Baird

Our 1st guide for the first 4 days was" Fazo". He made our trip. He was the most incredible man and I would not go back to Tanzania without having him as our guide. Please be sure to mention him to Asilia...I know I will. The time we spent at "Olivers Camp" was amazing. Our absolute favourite place. I have to mention Justin and Jacky as being great host's..We felt we had a great connection with both of them. And our guide for our walking safari, Lewis, was up there as #1 along with Fazo. The walking safari was probably the most interesting thing we did and Lewis was the main reason.

"The trip was great. We loved Oliver's, Dunia, Sayari, and Matemwe."

Rosemary Hogan

They took a lot of trouble with the food which was very good. We loved the communal dining, all at one big table and we enjoyed talking to the other guests. The staff were a nice friendly group. We would have liked internal telephones. The tents were quite far apart and we were not allowed out after dark without an escort, so there was no means of communication if we needed it. We all suffered nasty bites from tsetse flies here, in spite of using anti-bite spray. Good vehicle: Fixed roof but completely open sides. Excellent guide/driver, Mesenga. He had an amazing knowledge of the birds and could imitate many of their calls and songs.

Olivers was fabulous. Alex, Simon and the entire staff were delightful. The 'tents' were terrific, luxurious-since it was our first, I was thrilled-just what I'd hoped for. The bathrooms were outside, mostly, and were so nicely designed and worked it was fun!

"This is a very nice place and a very good restaurant. You were right, it was worthy to travel the extra miles to get there."

Oliver's Camp was fantastic. It was our favorite tent. It had the Africa safari feel that we love. Your advice to do fly camping was the best. It was a highlight of the trip (even before the lion walked into the fly camp at dinner time). Everyone should do that. It's just so "Out of Africa". You really feel surrounded by nature and very much a part of it, even more so than in a relatively small camp like Oliver's. I wanted to move to the fly camp and live there.

"Great safaris, honestly. We actually found ourselves in the middle of the migration! At Tarangire : Fazo was surprised that there still were that many elephants at that time of year, not to mention that we saw leopards and many lions."
PL

Phil Lewis

At Sayari, the game drive leading up to sunset was a special experience. Wining and dining off the hood of a land rover as the sun was setting and surrounded by all these animals was especially memorable. We didn't know if our timing was going to work out for the Wildebeest migration but as it turned out they were there in the thousands and we saw a water crossing. Also saw a herd of elephants crossing the Mara River. Still can hear that incessant grunting of the Wildebeest, especially outside our tent one night.

The choice of Olivers, Olikari, and Sayari was exactly what I wanted in tented camps. They were definitely as good as advertised and provided the "Out of Africa" experience that I was hoping for. The accommodations provided us more than enough comfort and space. Each camps tents, as well as the central dining and reception areas was configured in different ways so that we felt we were having a unique experience at each one. At each of these camps the service was outstanding and available at all times.
