Tortilis Camp is a luxury permanent tented camp that has stunning view towards Mount Kilimanjaro. On a clear morning you can view the mountain from your bed! There are 17 thatched tents set on wooden platforms, a dining/lounge area serving north Italian traditional recipes, and a swimming pool.
Activities include game viewing in the park and one can also spend time following the matriarchal elephant herds from the luxury of open sided safari Land Rovers; walk with a trained Maasai guide, sip sundowners on top of Kitirua hill as the sun sets coloring the snows of Kilimanjaro pink, bush breakfasts out on the plains or a visit to one of the Maasai manyattas (villages) to meet the Maasai women, watch the Morans (young warriors) dance and experience their age-old existence.
Amboseli. What a fabulous park! More elephants then we've ever come across at one setting. Mt. Kilimanjaro was of course covered by clouds most of the time but we did get to see her peak on our way to our sundowner which was breath taking to say the least. The accommodations at Tortilis Camp were unbelievable! The food was fantastic, tents clean and fresh and EVERYONE was friendly, polite and always welcoming. We would recommend this camp to anyone. We had a fantastic time there...Read More

The highlight of the trip was obviously the Safari. Amboseli has a stunning backdrop.
Tortilis Camp was very comfortable. The camp is in a very good location and they have access to a large conservancy. The main highlight in Amboseli was the bush breakfast. It was quite grand for just 2 couples. There was a dedicated chef and two waiters. The safari viewing was very good, especially elephants.
Maasai Mara was excellent. The Little Governor’s Camp was quite luxurious and very intimate (due to small size). I was very impressed with the quality of food there. It was a bit of a hike to go from the camp to the jeep across the river, but its all part of the experience. The balloon ride was definitely worthwhile. I am not sure if I would do it again but one must do it once.
We saw everything we had hoped to see in Mara. All the predators in a large number, other big 5 members, python, rhino, etc. We missed the kill by the Marsh pride lions but got their when they had just start feasting. It was probably the most intense experience of our safari. We got as close to predators as possible. In some cases, lions or elephants brushed against the vehicle.
We are glad that we saved Lamu Beach Resort for 4 nights as our last stop. We were quite exhausted and it was a perfect place to rest. We were on Kizingoni Beach which is about a 25 min boat ride from the air base… Read More
