About This Accommodation

Tortilis Camp sits on the edge of the Amboseli National Park, sheltered by a forest of thorn trees with unbeatable views of the Amboseli plains across to Kilimanjaro. Game drives and walks take place on the Kitirua Private Concession as well as in the Amboseli National Park, so you get the best of both.

The tents are spacious with king sized beds, en-suite bathrooms and steaming hot showers. A thatched roof extends out to a large verandah.Tortilis’ main areas are constructed using natural materials and consist of a lounge, bar and dining tent, but sundowners and bush meals are served al fresco.

Tortilis is not our favorite camp in Kenya and we find it a bit manicured, it is our favorite in the Amboseli area. We think it is great for first-time safari goers and families with younger children. The Private House is an option for family groups or those looking for more intimacy. The camp is not ideal for guests with mobility issues.

What Our Clients Think

I loved the set up of the tent, staff was very helpful (especially when I got sick), and we had the best guide of the trip!"

Loved it. Bush breakast and sundowners were the best! Amazing staff. Open jeeps were perfect and made game drives great! Our Maasai guide was excellent! He was very smart and polite and astonished us with his knowledge of the animals and Maasai culture. He knew the elephants by their name!!"

The accommodations were perfect. Really pretty and comfortable. The food was really, really delicious. I had not expected Italian cuisine! The service was wonderful. We were treated like we were visiting friends! Our guide was fabulous and we were privileged to spend time learning about his incredible life story and the game-viewing was awe inspiring."
