Tortilis Camp is an award-winning luxury tented camp in Amboseli National Park. Tortilis Camp is named after the flat topped, umbrella thorn tree, the Acacia Tortilis, and is situated just outside the Park in one of Amboseli’s few remaining areas of unspoilt woodland, with the majestic backdrop of Africa’s highest mountain, snow-capped Kilimanjaro.
Tortilis Camp has 17 spacious tents, all with elegant en-suite bathrooms with showers and modern flush toilets.
Each tent leads from a bedroom with expansive king-size or generous twin beds, through a dressing area into modern bathrooms with pressured hot showers and flush toilets. Each tent sheltered by a makuti (thatched) roof overhanging a large verandah, ideal for an early afternoon siesta.
From the comfort of your own private verandah, you can see for miles across the plains of Amboseli into Tanzania. Relax in the lounge and gaze at the awe-inspiring view of Africa’s highest mountain (Kilimanjaro). Each tent is naturally screened by trees and shrubs from others.
This lodge offers a swimming, you can enjoy the luxury of stepping out of the camp with a Maasai expert for a guided game walk outside the park, game drive in one of the camp’s custom built 4×4 safari vehicles.
Tortilis is open all year round. Daily scheduled flights are available from Nairobi’s Wilson airport to Amboseli airstrip approximately 45 minute-drive to camp.
