Whistling Thorn Tented Camp
Whistling Thorn Camp is established in a standard African thorn-tree bush within the Great Rift Valley with beautiful views of the great Escarpment. It is found within a private concession which is next to boundary of Tarangire National Park, and this actually makes it a perfect place for game viewing. It is managed by Maasai locals, and offers a legitimate African feel which will certainly reward you with an unforgettable experience.
The camp accommodates up to 20 guests in spacious, canvas tents under grass-thatched ramadas, giving them an aesthetically pleasing look. Each tent, with either two single beds or one king-sized bed has shelving, a writing desk and an ensuite bathroom with flush toilet and luxurious hot showers. The hot water is available whenever requested and is brought to guests’ tents in buckets – a very rustic approach that works splendidly. A shaded veranda with chairs, table and washbasins overlooks flat-topped acacia tree plains where giraffe, zebra and elephant come to graze. The chef prepares a three and four-course meals, beginning with freshly baked breads and warming soups, followed by fresh local vegetables, salads and meats, finishing up with decadent desserts.
