Whistling Thorn is set in in a typical African thorn-tree bush landscape, right next to the Kwakuchinja Wildlife Corridor, that is used by the animals to go from Tarangire to Lake Manyara in search for water and grasses. During the migration periods, you may be lucky to witness the migration of zebras, wildebeest and elephants right from the veranda of your tent. It’s a small camp, run by the people of local Maasai villages and definitely something out of the ordinary safari experience. This is where nature, culture, and conservation come together in the heart of wild Africa.
Whistling Thorn Camp can accommodate up to twelve guests in six spacious canvas tents under permanent grass-thatched ramadas. Each tent has shelving, a writing desk and an en suite bathroom with flush toilet and a hot shower. Mosquito nets, electrical lighting in tent and bathroom, and torches (flashlights) are provided.
Charging possibilities for cameras, batteries, etc.
