Tortilis Camp is a tented camp on the edge of Amboseli National Park with open views of Mount Kilimanjaro, offering one of the most dramatic settings for any camp in the area. One of the first eco-lodges in Kenya, it won the coveted Tourism For Tomorrow award and continues to offer the same excellent levels of sustainable wilderness experiences.
All of the spacious, comfortable tents are designed to naturally take in the views of Kilimanjaro and the sweeping game-filled plains below. The main mess area remains cool in the day, under a simple thatch roof, with the natural stone finish inside softened by rugs and cushions, with lanterns at night adding to the atmosphere. Like the rooms, the mess area is open at the front with a small decking area from which you can watch sunrise over Kili or watch game come to drink at the lodges waterhole. A population of over 1000 elephants live in the park eco-stystem and they remain one of the biggest draws, given the spectacular backdrop of the mountain, making this lodge particularly popular with photographers.
Why We Like It
A great little boutique camp, with some of the most dramatic views in Kenya. The food is also great here, with many of the recipies taken from the owners Italian mother.
