Tortilis Camp Amboseli

Amboseli National Park, Kenya

Overview

With the majestic backdrop of Africa’s highest mountain, and the world’s highest free-standing mountain, Tortilis Camp is widely regarded as the prime location for witnessing the majesty of snow-capped Kilimanjaro. Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree that surrounds the camp, the Acacia Tortilis. Amboseli is also best known for the local Elephant population.

Location

Amboseli National Park covers 392 sq kms, only a small portion of the surrounding 3000 sq km of the Amboseli ecosystem. Tortilis Camp is on the south-western edge of the park, facing the mountain and is accessed from within the National Park. It overlooks its own private 30’000-acre wildlife conservancy, Kitirua. Away from the busy eastern side of Amboseli, and with its own private conservancy, guests experience a wild and private Amboseli.
