Named after the natural forest of flat-topped acacia tortilis thorn trees that give it shade, the charming Tortilis Camp is situated on a sprawling private concession, accessed from within the renowned Amboseli National Park. Guests can expect elegant accommodation and endless views stretching to the majestic snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru in Tanzania. The camp’s beautifully-appointed tents are spacious, with comfortable beds, lovely ensuite bathrooms and a private veranda. Guests travelling with children can make use of the Family Tent and small groups can enjoy the comforts of the Private House. All accommodation options at Tortilis have exceptional mountain views.
The guest areas of the camp include a cosy sitting room, bar and dining area, all exquisitely furnished with natural materials and covered with thatched roofs. Guests can take a dip in the sparkling swimming pool or relax with an indulgent massage after an adventure-filled morning of game viewing. Over one thousand elephant, vast herds of wildebeest, lion and more than 300 species of birds have made the pristine wilderness of the Amboseli their home, which makes for exciting game viewing opportunities. Adventures include twice-daily game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles, walks outside the park (led by expert Maasai guides), cultural tours and decadent bush breakfasts.
What we love about Tortilis Camp
- Get as close to the region’s wildlife as possible on a walking safari. Expert Maasai guides will lead you to areas most often frequented by elephants, wildebeest and lions. As a special treat, at the end of this exceptional game viewing experience, you will be driven to the top of a hill, where you will be greeted by sundowners and snacks.
- Indulge in the camp’s superb location — Tortilis occupies a prime position on a hill with its own waterhole, which guests can observe from the dining area and bar. Incredible views of Mount Kilimanjaro are also visible from the site.
