Beautiful and relaxing!

The rooms are beautiful and relaxing. The private roof deck is a great spot to lounge, and the private pool is a must given the heat! Our butler, George, was excellent! We had never had a butler before, so found it a little awkward, but that was no fault of George's. The food was excellent and we were stuffed the entire time. The scuba center, ScubaFish is top notch. A great relaxing holiday!

Incredible Sights, Fabulous Staff- Amazing!

The animals were abundant. The scenery amazing. We loved the tents. Bucket showers were super. Escorts with spears at night was great! Elegant tent camping! Tent was very well made- felt secure, private and netting on windows kept all bugs out. Elephants and baboons munching around your tent night and day! Guides were fabulous. We requested guide to take us to a Masai village- highly recommend to learn about their culture. Lovely setting in the bush on an active river. We spent three nights- I would have loved to stay longer, but no time. Staff were very kind. We hope to go back!"

Unbelievable Location and Camp

This was a true experience worth writing about. The food was spectacular, the rooms were luxurious, and the staff were all very friendly. The proximity to amazing wildlife was great and the "sundowner" with the Hippo's was amazing. Our guide Emmanuel was very knowledgeable and created a great few days for us out with the animals. Its a must do if you are visiting the Serengeti!"

What a Special Place!

My husband and I stayed in Oliver's camp for just 1 night of our safari honeymoon around Tanzania. In hindsight we wish we had stayed for longer as it was the highlight of all the accommodations we visited - and we had done our homework using trip advisor to select each one. The hosts Jackie and Justin were very welcoming and made us feel at home instantly. The camp is located in a very quiet spot inside Tarangire park, and on our visit at the very start of March we saw an enormous amount of elephants and giraffes, and even a pack of lions very close to camp.

To describe this place as a camp almost feels like cheating as this is 'glamping' at its finest. The camp is relatively permanent, so the novelty of staying in a 'camp' surrounded by the sounds of the bush can be enjoyed without comprising on creature comforts. For example our 'tent' had a concrete floor, fully flushing toilet and wonderful hot outside shower.

The evening meal was really good, and our lunchbox the next day was my favourite of the trip - I am a semi-vegetarian, so I did struggle with bland food at a lot of other places. This was an exception. We wouldn't hesitate to return."

Camping Made Comfortable!

During our honeymoon trip in the beginning of March this proved to be the best location we stayed in for seeing the big cats. After 2 nights here we headed into the central Serengeti which seemed a common theme amongst the other guests too.The camp itself was relatively small (with around 9 guests tents) and is non-permanent so moves location around the park depending on the time of year.
We enjoyed our stay here very much and would recommend all the Asilia properties we stayed at. This is a lot more of a rustic 'tent' experience than staying in a lodge, but going to sleep listening to the sounds of the wildlife is pretty special - we also spotted zebra, giraffe and wildebeest from the camp which made it an experience.
This is an Eco camp, so water is precious and the bucket shower system works by requesting a hot shower in advance, so the staff go and fill up the buckets with hot water. The staff however were always happy to help, and the wake up calls with hot drinks and cookies were wonderful, and we loved the hot water bottles they put in the bed at night!"

Safari with a twist!

The team at Rubondo Island Camp epitomised for us our experience of 2 other Asilia camps on the same trip, Charming, attentive and providing hospitality to a high standard.
Rubondo is however different to other safari lodges as you have the opportunity to walk through the forests and beaches to get up close to the local wildlife. The hippos snort and the elephants grumble at you - but keep their distance, leaving you to explore the small creatures and the amazing variety of birds.
No doubt that our highlight was fishing for Nile Perch with Henk as our guide and keeping just one of the catch - for dinner!"

Five Star Treatment in a Tented Camp

During our 45th wedding anniversary trip at the beginning of March this proved to be our favourite tented camp, The attitude and service from Richard and his staff was better than many 5 star hotels in the UK!
The tents were beautifully furnished and equipped and we actually enjoyed having bucket showers!
The chef managed amazing cuisine from his tent and we were thrilled to have an 'African' singing/dancing display as we were presented with an enormous iced anniversary cake. Special dietary requests were easily dealt with and it was a great end to our safari. We would love to go back one day. Asante!"

Wonderful Camp!

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. Conway and Clea and the staff of mostly Masai people are outstanding. Our guide Martin was exceptional, not only in finding and identifying all kinds of fauna, but in his interest in African history. The Masai Mara area has an extraordinary number and variety of animals, and it is very beautiful, especially along the Mara River. The visit to a Masai village was fascinating and we strongly recommend it. The setting of our tent #5 was stunning, overlooking the Telek River where we saw elephants, crocs, hippos and various antelope right from our front door. The camp food is terrific, with a fine selection of wines. Of the 8 camps we have stayed in, this is one of the best!"

What an experience!

We came to Matemwe for 4 days 'recovery' - before heading off on Safari and it was a great decision. We were pampered and so well fed on fresh local produce, offered excellent advice and received that wonderful Tanzanian 'welcome' everywhere we went.
After dinner, we took to the hammock slung in the porch of our lodge to chill out and to watch the brilliant display of stars and fireflies - magic!"

Magical Place

This was my second time at Rekero camp and it was just as amazing if not even better. Since my last visit all tents have been renewed and are more spacious and luxurious and very comfortable. There is also an additional lounge area with a deck right by the river which is really nice. Rekero Camp is the home away from home. The managers and other staff are truly amazing in making your stay very special. The food was excellent and the game drives with my guide Sammy very special. His knowledge is great and he told me a lot about his culture which is very interesting. This time I combined Rekero Camp with Naboisho Camp in the Naboisho Conservancy which was the perfect combination! I would always come back to this special place right at the Talek river."
