"Oliver's Camp review"

3 nights Arrived 22 Sep 2011
"I loved the Tarangrira, our guide was Masenga and was excellent. The Game viewing was amazing. We were surrounded by wild life in abundance. I am also interested in birds and this was also responded to, so that i was able to delight in seeing so many different species. ```````we had a great walk in the bush with Marcus, and saw a lion on his kill, and a little chameleon! large and small, some fascinating info talks and of course too many other animal experiences to mention individually

The lunches and sundowners and evening meals were great again with great company. A picnic one day was not good but otherwise everyhting was super on the food front. I had a wonderful time!" See all these reviews: 13n in Tanzania

"Great to come back to after fly camping"

1 night Arrived 21 Sep 2011
"Our first tent, number 6 was excellent with good running water. Our second tent, number 9 was not as good. The location was not as nice, and the water flow was not as good. Same accommodations, but not as memorable as tent number 6.

Overall, four days and nights in the Tarangire was too long. Three days and three nights with one night of fly camping is sufficient." See all these reviews: 11n in Tanzania

"Oliver's Camp review"

2 nights Arrived 19 Sep 2011
"Amazing location, with views out onto a river valley. Elephants and giraffes visible in the distance while having morning coffee, occasionally game wandering through camp (saw hyena, dik-dik, and lots of birds), running water inside the tents, plenty of hot water from the solar heater, excellent comfortable beds.

Food was tasty and plentiful, wonderful campfire and drinks every night before dinner, small number of guests and relaxing atmosphere was really nice. Short drive to excellent game viewing.

Common dining table was a nice way to chat with other guests and share the day's experiences. Staff seemed genuinely friendly and helpful and were very pleasant to deal with." See all these reviews: 13n in Tanzania

"Great experience!"

1 night Arrived 18 Sep 2011
"The camp met and exceeded our expectations.

There is a lot to be said about the infrastructure of a permanent camp versus a mobile camp. The tent was more than we expected and the view was great.

The staff attended to your every need and the food was excellent." See all these reviews: 11n in Tanzania
