Named after the local acacia tortilis trees, the camp is set in one of the few remaining areas of unspoilt woodland. Working closely with the Masai people, the camp is managed as an eco-tourism lodge. One of the oldest lodges in Amboseli and while it is under canvas, Tortilis is permanent enough to be considered a lodge, with a stone plinth under each tent and a large lounge and dining area under a thatch roof.
Seductively embraced by a romantic hillside setting, Tortilis Camp lies on the edge of Amboseli National Park, and the view over the plains towards Kilimanjaro is exceptional. This exclusive camp is home to 17 private tents, each with en-suite bathrooms which offer steaming showers and modern toilets.
Capturing imaginations of evocative Africa, the camp is renowned for its delicious home-style cuisine - many of the ingredients come from the camp's own gardens, high standards of service and views of truly memorable sunsets over the famous snow-capped Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru.
Home to over 1,000 elephants, herds of wildebeest, lions and over 300 species of birds, Amboseli is an exciting and diverse game viewing destination.
The Camp offers a wide range of activities ranging from early morning and mid-afternoon game drives, horse-back riding to guided game walks led by a Masai expert outside the game park. Alternatively, you can laze around the pool with a cocktail.
