Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree, the Acacia Tortilis, and embraces a hill in Amboseli’s areas of Acacia Tortilis woodland. Located in a private conservancy bordering the national park, game drives, walks, sundowners, and bush meals occur both inside the national park and in the conservancy, where guests enjoy exclusivity.
Stefano Cheli built this Camp Amboseli in 1993, the first “Eco-lodge” in Kenya. This camp won the coveted Tourism for Tomorrow award.
Available in Main Area
The tents are all spacious, with king or twin beds and elegant en suite bathrooms. A main lounge, bar, and dining area are all exquisitely built with natural materials and thatched roofs. The Private House and Family Tent are located slightly separate from the main camp on the hill where they share a pool.
16 en-suite safari tents, 1 Private House & 1 Family Tent, each unit has 1 master bedroom and 1 twin room, both en-suite with a shared verandah/sitting area.
Tortilis Camp was one of the first eco-lodges of its size and is very proudly 100% solar.
Guests can rest assured they are leaving a minimal footprint during their stay.
