Such a joy to see the Thorn Tree cafe again after 22 years. It felt like seeing an old friend again. OK, so the old thorn tree died and a new one was re-planted, and yes, they appear to have built all around it now, whereas in the past the hotel was more open at one side. But the place is still the same. The message board is still there around the trunk but it is less for people trying to organise safaris and more for the "Hi mom, I made it" notes of today. We had a lovely aromatic veggie meal and a superb tasty export Guinness. (Sorry Tusker, you may be cold but I need to taste something.) it's such an iconic place, go for a drink if nothing else!

The café has evolved over the years, but we still wish to preserve our heritage and history as we recognize the importance of this.
We are glad you got to enjoy a cold Guinness and a lovely meal,
We certainly look forward to welcoming you back soon, sooner then in 22 years.
