The camp is absolutely gorgeous and is a permanent camp. There is a main lounging area with comfy sofas and chairs open to the great outdoors of course, and an eating tent. We are greeted with scented washcloths and cinnamon apple juice on arrival. We stay in tent #3 and is a triple. The beds and pillows are comfy and the tent spacious. The front area has a couch and couple of chairs. The bathroom has bucket shower, sink, flush toilet and good towels. There are a few lamps. The camp is run on solar power. There is a 24 hr charge station. The bathroom has many amenities including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, q-tips, laundry soap. There is complimentary laundry which we take advantage of.
At supper they provide complimentary alcoholic drinks and red and white wine. Meals are very tasty and the ambience is fantastic! The staff is amazing and very friendly. They truly make you feel welcome! During the day you are free to walk around camp, at night they provide an escort which you can call with a walkie talkie system. I would highly recommend this camp!"

Spectacular. Don't miss this camp!
This was my first time to the Serengeti but not the first time to camp... If you can call it that! Dunia camp is truly a magical place. From the people (Angel is an angel) to the food to the accommodations, this place is like no other. We were fortunate to be there during the migration and could watch the wildebeests as we lay in bed. Pretty cool. Here you are in the middle of what feels like miles and miles and miles away from anything and you are served gourmet meals. I agree with everyone who has written (and sent some very awesome pictures too), Dunia Camp is spectacular. Thanks to the entire staff! You all are fantastic!"

Excellent in Every Way!
I have been many times to Rubondo Island in the last 30 years and never has it had such a charming, comfortable, luxurious and all round great place. You feel completely exclusive and the Hosts and staff are fantastic. We stayed only 3 nights and would have wished to stay many more and were sad to leave.
Thanks so much for a perfect weekend!!! Thanks to Janine, Henk and all the staff!"

Best Place to Stay In Masai Mara!
Topi House is a wonderful place to stay. The best view you could imagine on a safari holiday from the front porch - and lunch is served in the gardens overviewing the plains of the Mara and the escarpment, under the shade of an acacia tree. Could not ask for anywhere more "Out of Africa"!
Very friendly staff. Expert guides, some of the most professional and knowledgable around. And Topi House is located in one of the best areas of the Mara - wonderful scenery and big cats right on your doorstep, and it's far away from the big tented camps so there are fewer cars around giving you a more exclusive and natural experience around the animals. Could never imagine staying anywhere else in the Masai Mara!"

Spent 4 nights at Sayari at the start of our African adventure. First impressions, arrived at the local airstrip to be picked up by our guide who summarily invited us on a game drive back to the camp. We were immediately immersed in the Serengeti from the minute we arrived. The camp itself is in an ideal position, located just off the Mara river, with abundant wildlife right on our doorstep, (literally!) The staff were most attentive and food was excellent. Indeed, my wife, who requires a gluten and dairy free diet, received outstanding meals prepared specifically for her. The rooms in camp were spacious and clean; and staff were on call for any requirement we had. Our guides were knowledgable and very friendly, quite willing to adjust plans to meet our requirements; and to allowing ample time to allow us to take it all in. We both loved the experience and would not hesitate to return."

Be pleasantly surprised
Would echo the comments of other travelers in the luxury, service and food quality of Dunia. Richard, the manager, and his team are amazing and try to anticipate every guest's needs, including specific food requests which is incredible given how remote the camp is. Tip: The pre-dinner campfire and the communal dinners are great experiences, but the staff can also prepare a private dinner slightly away from the other guests if you want privacy."

Most enjoyable stay here. Excellent guides.
Most enjoyable stay here. Excellent guides. Appears to be the best located camp in the area as all the other camps are much further away from the river, near where many animals congregate. Couldn't believe the number of different lions we saw."

What an experience!
What an amazing place to stay. Of all places to stay in Africa, it was the most luxurious room accommodations. There was a beautiful bathtub. The food was terrific and the temporary manager who was there to relieve the regular manager was so kind and helpful. The group environment of nightly cocktails and bonfires as well as meals held at a large table with everyone surrounding was a nice change from the intimate dinners we had shared at other resorts. The guides were very good and tried to find whatever it was you were looking for. I would suggest just being upfront with your guide as to what you want to see and how long you want to spend seeing it. It has worked well for us. Our guide was terrific in finding secluded areas where we could view the animals from different vantage points. We found with the safaris tours and the meals, we rarely spent time in the room, which was a shame as it was gorgeous!"

Oliver's camp was spectacular! The manager's Justin and Jackie were wonderful, the food was great, and rooms were lovely. We absouletely loved the outdoor shower that was in every room (I showered while watching a herd of buffalo about 50 feet away). We also enjoyed the pre-dinner camp fire and drinks. Was a great way to meet the other guests and share animals sightings from the day. We optioned to partake in a walking safari while staying at the camp. Was a lot of fun and we got to see some animals very close up on foot giving us a completely different perspective. Another guest had optioned to do Fly-camping the night were at Oliver's and he had a lion approach his tent in the middle of the night. Sounded like an amazing experience. The space for these activities is limited so make sure to tell your tour operator to book in advance.
We booked our Safari through Planet Africa Safaris. They are a partner of Asilia Africa (the owner of Oliver's Camp). I cannot recommend them enough. Our entire trip went off without a hitch. Their staff is incredibly responsive and helpful. The guide they provided was excellent as well.

A Diver's Dream!
We came to Zanzibar for diving and had some really amazing dives in Zanzibar. With that being said, the coral and the fish were amazing if you get the chance to diversify the dive trips, would recommend it. We had a great time diving, visibility was great, and we even saw a whale shark during our dive, which is very rare.
The lodge management and staff were very nice and the rooms were great. Loved the room, the bathroom was very large and it was a great way to wind down and relax. The restaurant staff was great and friendly and everyone very accommodating. I would recommend this place to every diver who wants to experience Zanzibar diving."
