Tortilis Camp

Situated just outside Amboseli National Park, famous for its vistas of Mount Kilimanjaro and tremendous elephant herds, Tortilis Camp sits in one of the few remaining areas of unspoilt woodland. Tortilis Camp is a charming, rustic tented camp, shaded by a natural forest of Acacia Tortilis thorn trees after which the camp is named. Located in the undeveloped western half of Amboseli the camp offers game drives and walks both inside and outside the park and within a private 30,000 acre game concession. More than half of the guides at Tortilis are Masai, and have between them 80 years of guiding at Tortilis! The camp is rare in offering open game drive vehicles.

The camp was incredible and the service was second to none throughout our time there. All of the staff were so friendly and they could not have done any more to make our stay perfect. The camp was very well run by Graham and Candy. When we arrived we were given the family tent and even had a whole pool all to ourselves. The tent had been set up with…
