Kenya / Amboseli / Tortilis Camp
Tortilis Camp


Tortilis Camp is an award-winning luxury tented camp in Kenya's Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is best known for unrivalled views of Kilimanjaro and its elephant population - over 1000 elephant in the Park eco-system, which are some of the biggest elephant in Africa.

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 steaming hot 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 is raised up on a wooden deck and sheltered by a makuti (thatched) roof overhanging a large verandah, ideal for an early afternoon siesta.

There is a main lounge, bar and dining area, all exquisitely built with natural materials and thatched roofs, with a magnificent view of Kilimanjaro.

During the day, guests can take game drives with one of the safari guides in an open 4WD vehicle or go for a guided walk outside the park with one of our expert Maasai guides. Other activities include: swimming pool, bush meals, sundowners, massage, cultural visits.

Tortilis Camp won a British Airways regional award for ecotourism and has earned an international reputation for its commitment to the environment with its rustic simplicity, unobtrusive design and attention to comfort without compromising the ecosystem.
