Tortilis Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

Resting in the shadow of colossal Mount Kilimanjaro in Amboseli National Park, Tortilis Camp is a luxury eco-friendly safari destination with dramatic views of “the roof of Africa".

Each of the sixteen makuti-covered tents boasts magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Wooden floors under the main bedroom area and a permanent en-suite bathroom add to the luxurious feel. Each tent features a private veranda for relaxing and taking in the unparalleled views. The newly added family tent includes one double en suite bedroom, one twin en suite bedroom, and a large, private veranda. An additional bed can be added to each bedroom for children under sixteen. Another option for accommodation is the private house, consisting of one en-suite double bedroom, one en-suite twin bedroom, and a roomy sitting/dining room with a veranda. Romantically draped beds, natural elements, and panoramic views add to the drama of a stay in the Tortilis Private House.

Located at the southwest edge of Kenya’s Amboseli National Park, Tortilis Camp is named after a native tree, the Acacia Tortilis. The camp itself is nestled in woodlands full of these flat-topped umbrella thorn trees. However, the trees do little to distract from the main event. Mt. Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain at almost 20,000 feet and the world’s highest free-standing mountain. Amboseli National Park sits under the shadow of the mountain and is well-known for its large herds of elephants numbering about 1,500.

With only 10% of Amboseli National Park utilized by most safari vehicles and Tortilis’s unique location on the western edge, game drives here enjoy an almost private access to the park. Some of the plentiful wildlife spotted here includes lion, cheetah, giraffe, hyena, and wildebeest. Expert guides from the Maasai community lead nature walks for detailed looks at the flora and fauna as well as lessons on traditional uses of barks and herbs. Cultural visits take in the local Maasai homestead and provide an opportunity to purchase local handicrafts.

Tortilis’s main camp areas feature impressive views of the mountain and also overlook a nearby waterhole, providing plenty of opportunity for game viewing. Natural materials and thatched roofs add to the ambiance of the open lounge, bar, and dining areas. Guests enjoy eating at their own individual tables and relish the fresh, homegrown fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown in the kitchen garden. The camp also has a refreshing swimming pool within a lush garden setting and a spa with a variety of relaxing services available.
