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.
