Reviews of Tortilis Camp
They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
As our program guide indicated, Tortilis is a luxury safari camp, well-located on a small rise with views of the savanna and the mountains beyond.
Excellent restaurant, highly-qualified and friendly staff, and pleasant tented accommodations.
Game drives, focused on elephants, were exceptionally well done.
An added benefit here was an opportunity to visit a Maasai village. Just ask, otherwise not scheduled.
Most interesting, heart-warming and very informative Contrasting the village itself with the nearby schools for boys and girls was a bit disturbing but that is life in Africa, so I understand.
Superb place, excellent staff, great managers
Tortilis Camp was fantastic in all respects and is in a stunning location with a stunning view of Kilimanjaro. Superb accommodation, lovely food, and very welcoming helpful staff.
The managers, Andrea and Manuela were wonderful, so friendly and helpful. On our last night we were the only people staying there and Andrea and Manuela made our stay really special with a candle lit dinner, set on the hillside over looking Kilimanjaro.
On our game drives the animal sightings were superb and our guide, Eric, was extremely knowledgeable. We saw elephants, cheetahs, spotted hyenas, lions, lots of birds to name a but a few.We had some of the best game drives we've ever been on.
We would love to return there.
Tortilis Camp review
We have been to numerous camps in southern Africa over a period of 25 years and if ever there was an outlook from the bar/dining area (accompanied by a glass of chilled white wine) better than Tortilis we have not met it. A wonderful location.
Game viewing is fine, helped by the fact that they can off-road in the concessionary area. Elephants predominate and we were fortunate to see one with quite the largest tusks we have ever seen.
Tortilis are designing their vehicles for no more than two persons on a row so those guests with lots of camera equipment can be accommodated well. Our vehicle had adjustable support platforms for cameras.
Extremely attentive service from the staff.
