Set in classic African thorn-tree bush in the Great Rift Valley with stunning views of the Escarpment, Whistling Thorn Camp is a private concession adjacent to the Tarangire National Park. Whistling Thorn Camp is a perfect facility for safari goers who would like something out of the ordinary for their safari experience - where nature, culture, and conservation come together in the heart of wild Africa.
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, with a fantastic landscape of rivers, the famed baobob trees, acacia woodlands and more. It is a very large Park, and wildlife viewing is excellent. Tarangire is also known as having extremely high bird diversity - for all of East Africa.
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 spacious full luxury canvas en-suite tents with permanent grass-thatched ramadas. At night, your private tent is lit by gas lamp, and you will have your own electric torch.
Guests at Whistling Thorn Camp also enjoy a special relationship with the Olasiti Maasai 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 that are important to cultural conservation.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
