Location: Whistling Thorn Camp is a small facility located in a private concession within the Kwa Kuchinja wildlife corridor adjacent to Tarangire National Park, about 15 minutes drive from the main park entrance.
Accommodation: Whistling Thorn Camp can accommodate up to twelve guests in six spacious canvas tents under permanent grass-thatched armadas, there are plans to expand the facility. Each tent, with either two single beds or one king-sized bed, has shelving, a writing desk and an en suite bathroom with flush toilet and hot showers. A shaded veranda with chairs, table, and washbasins overlooks parkland of whistling thorn trees and fl at-topped acacia trees where giraffe, zebra and elephant graze, and the occasional Maasai warriors wander by. At night, your private tent is lit by electric light, and torches (flashlights) are provided.
Facilities & Services: Meals are served in a spacious dining tent and a bar selection is available. Activities which can be organized at the camp include bush walks with Maasai guides, day & night game drives, bird-watching, visits to a Maasai village or a local school, or you may choose to venture south of Lake Manyara to visit the Datoga people who still observe their age-long traditions like their Maasai neighbours.
