Whistling Thorn Tented Camp is a tented safari camp offering a genuine wilderness experience. It is located in Tanzania, just outside the Tarangire National Park, in the wildlife corridor between Tarangire and Lake Manyara. The corridor is used by wildlife species as they move between the parks in search of water and grazing grounds. During the migratory season, you may be able to see elephants, zebra and wildebeest passing by right outside your tent. The camp is run by the local Masai people, and you may see Masai warriors wandering by as well. The accommodation is made up of six spacious canvas tents with thatched roofs, each featuring en-suite bathrooms. The private verandas are perfect spot to relax and drink in the views of the surrounding plains, dotted by acacia and Whistling Thorn trees, on which elephant, zebra and giraffe graze. Enjoy a variety of safari activities, including traditional game drives, night drives, walking safaris and Masai village visits. The local community is actively involved with the camp, and 10% of each guest’s stay is dedicated to them.
