Slightly outside the southern boundary of Amboseli National Park, Tortilis, named after the Acacia tortilis trees of the area, is a luxury safari camp clustered around a gentle rise. On a clear day, there are fantastic views of Kilimanjaro from the lounge and dining area. The camp is located in the 120 square-kilometre Kitirua Conservancy, which is exclusive to guests of Tortilis.

Meals at Tortilis are excellent, based partly around produce grown in Tortilis' own vegetable garden, and served at individual tables in the central dining and lounge area at the top of the hill.

A fuller and more detailed report on Tortilis will appear soon. Meanwhile, please contact us for further information.
