Overlooking the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, Tortilis Camp is located in Amboseli National Park, a region spanning 30,000 acres and famed for its high elephant population. The camp was named after the ‘umbrella thorn’ Acacia Tortilis trees, which are peppered throughout the property.
As the first boutique eco-lodge in Kenya, this safari gem provides ample proof that luxury and environmental focus are not mutually exclusive. The eighteen gorgeous thatched-roof tents have all be constructed using natural materials from the local area, while the whole camp is run entirely on solar power. Décor is rustic chic in style, with wooden furnishings, sunset hues and cosy patterned rugs.
With views out over the striking Mount Kilimanjaro, the dining room is a feast for all the senses. Specialising in Italian cuisine, the hotel serves a range of dishes featuring homegrown produce from the camp’s own vegetable garden.
A cooked-to-order bush breakfast is served in the mornings and is included in most room rates (see rate detail below).
There are eighteen thatched tents at Tortilis Camp, all of which have been designed with natural materials - from rustic wooden furnishings, to locally sourced décor. Most tents are open-sided, looking out over the sweeping plains and dramatic Mount Kilimanjaro. Double and twin beds are available, as well as family options.
The highly certified guides are well-versed in the area, and will show you the park’s jewels. Elephants are a particular highlight here, with over 1500 roaming the park, and all your game watching can be enjoyed against the dramatic Kilimanjaro backdrop.
Tortilis Camp also has a glittering outdoor pool, perfect for a refreshing dip after a day out on the plains.
