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's 16 tents are spacious and offer private verandas with stunning views to enjoy. Tortilis is a child friendly camp offering both a family tent and a private house. All of the accommodation in camp provides en suite facilities, with flush toilets and hot showers, comfortable beds and furnishings and an unrivalled outlook of towering Kilimanjaro.
Such magnificent vistas are also on offer from the camp's main area, which comprises a lounge, bar, dining room and an inviting swimming pool, perfect for cooling off on a hot day. The camp specialty is top notch Italian cuisine with ingredients coming straight from the camp's own vegetable garden.
Tortilis Camp is 3 and a half hours drive from Nairobi or 45 minutes flight from Nairobi. The drive to the camp from the airstrip is approximately 45 minutes.
Daily game drives, guided walks in the surrounding area, bush meals, sundowners, massage and cultural visits.
