Tortilis Camp, Amboseli
What awaits you at Tortilis?
Tortilis is one of the crown jewels of the Amboseli ecosystem. Set in the shadow of Kilimanjaro, Tortilis give you the best of both worlds: The shimmering beauty of the Amboseli ecosystem (with the famous elephant populations and gorgeous wildlife) and sublime luxury and service. It’s the perfect combination for your next trip away.
Come Away With Us and wake up with the mountain in full view, the birds giving you a morning chorus. A cup of tea in your tent, head out for a game drive among the Amboseli swamps and see what you can see. When your ready, head back to camp, for an amazing breakfast, quick dip in the pool to keep off the heat.
After a delicious lunch, a quick afternoon siesta and then back out of the trails: What are the ellies up to? Whats that lion doing over there? How many different bird species can you spot?
Wildlife, mountain views, sensational service… Tortilis really is the perfect place.
Incredible individual tents or family tents.
Tortilis has some of the most sensational accommodation options out there. You can either stay in the tents in the gorgeous tents at the bottom of the camp, in doubles, twins, singles or twins for the kids’ room.
All the rooms are beautifully furnished and finished, with some overlooking Kilimanjaro and some overlooking the wide-open plains.
All the tents are en suite, with flush loos and lovely hot water out of the showers, with all the bells and whistles. And to make your trip even more luxurious: hot tea, coffee, or chocolate are bought to your tent in the morning on request … sounds delicious.
If you want complete privacy for you and your group, check out the family tents. 2 huge tents can hold you and the extended family, with your own private pool and mountain views, be careful tho, once you get into the family rooms, you may never want to leave 🙂
The Main Mess area
Bar, dinning room, lounge, sun downer spot & pool – Boom.
Get involved with the glory of Tortilis by taking in the mountain views from the bar and lounge area. Sensational service and great drinks overlooking the mountain, how does that sound?
For your meals: head into the dining room and get met with the smiling team ready to serve you up a treat.
But what about the sundowner? Yup, there is a separate sundowner spot, with a fire pit in the middle to watch the iconic African scene unfold in front of you.
Oh, did we mention the waterhole at the bottom of the camp to watch the elephants come through?
And the cherry on top of the cake? When the kids need some entertainment, send them down to the lovely pool to cool off, have some fun and watch the birdlife chattering away and playing.
Let’s head out for a drive
Wonderful game and birds, 1600 ellies….
