Tortilis Camp Amboseli is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree, the Acacia Tortilis, and is situated in one of Amboseli's areas of Acacia Tortilis woodland, with the majestic backdrop of Africa's highest mountain, and the World’s highest free-standing mountain, snow-capped Kilimanjaro.

 

Game drives, walks, sundowners and bush meals take place both inside the park, and within a private 30,000 acre game concession. Amboseli National Park is best known for its unrivalled views of Kilimanjaro and the local Elephant population. There are over 1000 Elephants in the Parks eco-system, featuring some of the largest in Africa.

 

Tortilis Camp Amboseli tents are all large and spacious, with king or twin beds, elegant en suite bathrooms. There is a main lounge, bar and dining area, all exquisitely built with natural materials and thatched roofs, with magnificent views of Kilimanjaro.

 

Tortilis Camp’s tents are inviting and luxurious with Mt. Kilimanjaro peering down over the entire camp. Tortilis Camp’s Tents can fit one extra bed, for children under the age of 16 year only. The 17 spacious en-suite tents consist of a main bedroom (with wooden floors), permanent en-suite bathroom (hot running water, stone floors, shower and flush toilet) and spacious veranda.


Tortilis Camp Amboseli Family House consist of 1 en-suite double bedroom, 1 en-suite twin bedroom, and a spacious sitting / dining room with veranda.

 

Tortilis Camp’s tent each 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.

 

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. Tortilis Camp Amboseli tents are naturally screened by trees and shrubs from others.

 

At night, the sounds of the bush lull you to sleep. Before evening drinks and dinner, enjoy the view from your tent verandah. Watch elephant families close by as they forage just outside camp.

 

Guests sleep under canvas, but in style. Tortilis Camp Amboseli tents offer large comfortable beds, elegant bathrooms and a hot cup of tea at your bedside when you wake up.

Why Stay at Tortilis Camp, Amboseli?

* Tortilis Camp’s tents are airy and all are on a raised wooden platform, sheltered by a Makuti (thatched) roof

* Experienced Camp guides know how to make a bush walk or safari game drive 'come alive' for young guests

* Tortilis Camp welcomes Children. Early mealtimes and a baby-listening service are available, and during the day

* In the heat of the day, parents can relax by the swimming pool whilst kids enjoy a refreshing dip, with iced-drinks available from the poolside bar.

* Amboseli National Park is a place of contrasts: during the hot dry season, mirages appear on the dusty horizon; year around, the elephant herds follow their ancient rituals, migrating daily from the Tortilis forests to the swamps. In the green season water birds: Flamingo, Pelican. Egyptian Geese flock to the park and the arid plains turn emerald green overnight.
* In Amboseli, the traditional cultural heritage is strong: the Masai communities adhere to an age-old lifestyle, herding and trading cattle; a life which they will share with you in their Manyattas (Masai homes), a circle of dung and mud huts protected by a barrier of thorns against the predators.
* Tortilis Camp has raised funds to build a school for the local villages; visits to the school and neighboring villages can be arranged.
* Tortilis Camp, Masai Guides lead walks into the bush, passing on knowledge of traditional medicinal and uses of local flora and Masai folklore.
* A walk in the bush is part of the magic of a safari: following the spoor of the animals passing camp the night before, smelling the crushed leaves where animals have fed, listening to the bird calls and watching them overhead, this way you touch and feel the wild.
