Tortilis Camp


Amboseli National Park, home to some of the largest elephants in Africa, is the setting for Tortilis Camp. Named for the umbrella shaped thorn trees under which it is built, Acacia Tortilis, this tented camp beckons you away from the stresses of life and surrounds you with luxury. Sit on your private verandah and enjoy the view of the highest mountain in Africa. Awaken early in the morning to the scent of grass and bush, redolent with the essence of untouched wilderness.

Within the Amboseli National Park (Amboseli means “salty dust” in the Maasai language) the award-winning Tortilis Camp creates an oasis – a place of peace, a place of solitude. The mountain is omnipresent, even when covered by clouds and sets the stage for your stay. Watch the sun set from the top of a nearby hill; take the time to observe the behaviour of the elephant family groups. Whether you


choose to explore or stay put, the friendly staff, members of the surrounding Maasai community, will delight in making your stay at Tortilis a most memorable part of your visit to Kenya.

The 17 tents are all large and spacious, with king-size beds, elegant en suite bathrooms with steaming hot showers and modern flush toilets. There is a main lounge, bar and dining area, all exquisitely built with natural materials and thatched roofs, with a magnificent view of Kilimanjaro.
