Tortilis Camp


In a location that dreams are made of, Tortilis, an award-winning eco resort, has unrivalled views of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro and a vast elephant population – with more than 1,000 in the park. Nestled in an acacia grove,  his camp provides accommodation in spacious rustic tents, all sited on a raised deck with a large verandah, king-size beds and an elegant ensuite bathroom – all set against a backdrop of Africa’s highest mountain. A wonderful property in a textbook African safari setting.


Our Thoughts

Amboseli’s top safari camp – roomy tents with large verandas and king-size beds. Stay here not only for the game drives, bush walks and visits to the local villages, but for the unrivalled views; it lies in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, often snow-capped but always picturesque. Take an extra memory card for all the inevitable photos of the peak.

  • Spa
  • Laundry

With an invitingly lush and healthy vegetable garden, Tortilis Camp prides itself in serving up its fresh homegrown salads and vegetables with every meal. From lavish bush breakfast out in the middle of the plains, to fresh homemade pastas and breads at the camp, the Tortilis chefs excel themselves with every meal.

Tortilis Camp has a spacious dining room overlooking Mt Kilimanjaro, where guests eat at their own individual tables (i.e. not communally, like at some of the other camps). The camp has a daily set menu.

General mealtimes are as follows:

  • Breakfast 06.30-09.30
  • Lunch 13.00-14.30
  • Afternoon tea and homemade cakes and biscuits are served during the afternoon
  • Dinner 20.00 – 21.30

Canapes ‘bitings’ are served in the bar and lounge before dinner.

Tortilis Camp is happy to cater for special diets such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc. Please make sure you inform us well in advance though, so that the camp managers can prepare for your arrival.

With Mt. Kilimanjaro peering down over the entire camp, each of Tortilis Camp’s 16 tents has a glorious view of the mountain.

Each makuti-covered tent consists of a main bedroom with twin or double beds, en-suite bathroom and a spacious verandah. Let us know if you require twin beds or double bed.
