Tortilis Camp Amboseli is known for its magnificent elephants – a population of over 1000 elephants reside in the parks eco-system that features some of the largest in Africa.
Tortilis Camp has a prime location for witnessing the majesty of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. The camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree, the Acacia Tortilis, and embraces a hill in one of Amboseli’s areas of Acacia Tortilis woodland. Located in a private conservancy bordering the national park, game drives, walks, sundowners and bush meals take place both inside the national park and in the conservancy, where guests enjoy exclusivity.
Famed for its long-tusked elephants, views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and hundreds of species of bird, Amboseli National park is a photographers haven. The parks name derives from the Maasai word for salty-dust, thanks to its barren desert-like plains, however, thanks to springs running off the mountain this land is teeming with life. Elewana Tortilis Camp Amboseli is located on the southwestern edge of the park, facing the mountain and overlooking its own private conservancy Kitirua Conservancy.
Tortilis Camp was one of the first eco-lodges of its size, and is very proudly 100% solar. Guests can rest assure they are leaving a minimal footprint during their stay. The en suite tents are spacious, comfortable and offer views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The first eco-lodge of its size, the main lounge, bar and dining area, have been built using natural materials, including classic thatched roofs, representative of the building style of the area.
The tents are all spacious, with king or twin beds and elegant en suite bathrooms. There is a main lounge, bar and dining area, all exquisitely built with natural materials and thatched roofs.
