Famous for its large elephants
Away from the busy eastern side of Amboseli, and with its own private conservancy, Tortilis guests experience a wild and private Amboseli.
Tortilis Camp sits nestled in a verdant acacia grove at the foot of the majestic, snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro. Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree that surrounds the camp, the Acacia Tortilis. On the south-western edge of the Amboseli National Park, facing the mountain the camp is accessed from within the Park and overlooks its own private 30,000 acre wildlife conservancy, Kitirua.
Each of the 16 tents are raised up on a wooden deck and sheltered by a makuti (thatched) roof overhanging a large veranda, which is ideal for an early afternoon siesta. The tents all boast beautifully appointed spacious bedrooms with expansive king-size or generous twin beds, dressing areas and elegant en-suite modern bathrooms with pressured hot showers. There is a main lounge, bar and dining area, all exquisitely built with natural materials and thatched roofs, with magnificent views of Kilimanjaro. The Family Tent features a swimming pool shared with the Private House. This house consists of one en-suite double bedroom, one en-suite triple bedroom, and a spacious sitting / dining room with veranda.
Amboseli is also known for its magnificent elephants – a population of over 1500 elephants, and some of Africa’s largest, reside in the park’s unique ecosystem. As well as plentiful plains game and their predators, the area hosts its own eastern white bearded wildebeest migration, a population that is genetically separate from the Masai Mara/Serengeti population. Here clients enjoy varied game viewing and can also spend time following the matriarchal elephant herds from the luxury of open sided safari Land Rovers; or walk with a trained Masai guide, sip sundowners on top of Kitirua hill as the sun sets, colouring the snows of Kilimanjaro pink. Enjoy bush breakfasts out on the plains or visit one of the Masai manyattas (villages) to meet the Masai women, watch the Morans (young warriors) dance and experience their age-old existence.
