Overview of Tortilis Camp

Sharing a border with Amboseli National Park and with its own private entrance into the park, Tortilis Camp is located in a hillside setting and shaded by the natural forest of Acacia tortilis thorn trees after which the camp is named. Designed in a manner that blends rustic style and modern amenities, this completely camp is renowned for its high standards of service and its superb views of the sunset over Mounts Kilimanjaro and Meru.

Tortilis Camp offers a wide range of activities, ranging from early morning and late afternoon game drives, to guided game walks outside the game park led by a Maasai expert. Support the local community by visiting a local village, and meet and interact with the students of Esiteti Primary School. Alternatively, you can laze around the pool with a cocktail and enjoy the sounds of the wild.

Once you have had your fill of relaxing activities like birding and sundowners, head to the Amboseli Elephant Research Centre – founded by Dr Cynthia Moss – to learn more about efforts to save these intelligent and sensitive pachyderms.

Dining

The food at Tortilis Camp is an integral part of the camp’s charm. Enjoy traditional northern Italian cuisine, based on recipes from the owner’s family cookbook, complemented by delicious salads and herbs grown in the camp’s own kitchen garden.

The day’s menu consists of breakfast and lunch buffets, and an a la carte dinner. Dishes include pizza, lasagne, spaghetti bolognaise, fresh perch, seared beef fillet and chocolate roulade. All water, including that used for ice, is filtered. Tortilis Camp issues guests with a reusable metal water bottle, thus stopping 200 000 plastic water bottles from being sent to landfill every year.

When you are out on the afternoon game drive, enjoy the ‘bitings’ (as snacks are known in Kenya) that have been freshly prepared by the chef.

Tortillis Camp works closely with the African Beekeepers’ Association and their resulting delicious honey is not only for sale in the safari shop but is also creatively incorporated into the menu.
