Whistling Thorn Camp is set in a private concession adjacent to the Tarangire National Park. It is an ideal camp for safari goers who would like something out of the ordinary for their safari experience - where nature, culture, and conservation come together.
The entrance to Tarangire is just 15 minutes drive from Whistling Thorn Camp. This Park is a little-known jewel of East Africa - a haven for one of the largest elephant herds and a fantastic landscape of rivers, the famed Baobob trees, acacia woodlands and more. The wildlife and birding viewing here is excellent - and even in camp, you may frequently encounter antelope and zebra.
As well as game drives in the Park, you can also enjoy bush walks with Masai guides as well as night drives - the best time to see animals such as jackals, leopards, and and other shy cats.
Whistling Thorn Camp can accommodate up to 20 guests in canvas en-suite tents with permanent grass-thatched ramadas. At night, each tent is lit by gas lamps, creating a cosy environment. Each tent also has a shaded veranda with chairs and a small table.
Buffet breakfasts and lunches are set up in the spacious dining tent, and in the evening, the friendly staff will serve a 3 (or maybe 4) course meal to you at your table.
Guests at Whistling Thorn Camp also enjoy a special relationship with the Olasiti Masai community, from whom the camp land is leased. The community shares in the proceeds from each guest-night paid, and many guests contribute to numerous projects (such as the local primary school or water systems) that are important to cultural conservation. Other cultural activities include visits the local Masai community to buy crafts or to south Lake Manyara to visit the very shy and still-primitive Datoga people, relatives of the Masai.
