Amboseli Tortilis Camp
Amboseli Tortilis is one of the Luxury accommodation in Amboseli National Park which is on its own private conservancy. It faces Africa’s largest mountain Tortilis, one of our favorite properties in Amboseli. With a lifetime of experience behind the guides at the camp, it is said that they know every individual elephant. Also they know each hyena den and the vast majority of migratory birds that make their way to Kenya!
The camp is in a conservancy called Kitirua, bordering the south west of Amboseli National Park. The conservancy is very large, and with no fences dividing the land, the game in the conservancy is often just as rich as it is inside the park. Elephant herds as well as bird viewing is particular good in Amboseli and with a backdrop of the mountain, it is one of the most photographed park in East Africa. Its location in a private conservancy also allows a more varied and exclusive game viewing experience.
Tortilis camp has 16 spacious tents, each with a mountain view and its own private verandah. The main mess area comprises of a spacious dining room overlooking Kilimanjaro. It also has exceptionally friendly staff serving guests at individual tables from a menu boasting the use of only fresh, homegrown vegetables. The camp also has a swimming pool and a spa, offering massages, manicures and pedicures to wind down from a busy day in the bush!
Each tent has a double or twin bed, an en-suite bedroom and also a verandah to enhance the view on offer. As like other safari tents across East Africa, they stand with makuti- a thatching made from the sun-dried leaves of the coconut palm. The most recent tent edition is the Private House, accommodating up to five guests with a spacious sitting and also a dining room. Guests staying here, and in the Family Tent, can enjoy a private swimming pool in the camp.
Game viewing at Tortilis Camp raves, and rightly so, about its guiding level and expertise. Most of the staff are local, building further every day on their official guiding qualifications. With the majority of camps located to the east of the park, hence using the eastern gate entrance, guests at Tortilis Camp can enjoy an almost private Amboseli in the west, on either game drives or guided bush walks. Tortilis also offer cultural visits, bush breakfasts, sundowners in idyllic locations and can even organize weddings
