My husband and I planned a safari honeymoon for ourselves and started with Amboseli as our first stop. It was the perfect, intimate intro, where we enjoyed our own lux vehicle and the best safari guide we’d end up having during our trip (Alex, you’re the best!). Since it was our first experience, we hardly knew what to expect despite... More

Tortillis was our first stop on our first African adventure and it exceeded our expectations. My husband and I have both travelled extensively and stayed in 5 star properties in many locations around the world and we were extremely impressed with the operation at Tortilis and the amazing service.

Tortilis camp was the first stop in our 2 week safari vacation and it set the tone for a wonderful time ahead. The camp is located on a hill with a short hike downhill to the tents. There is watering hole just outside the perimeter of the camp which is frequented by elephants and other animals. It makes for excellent... More

Amboseli and Tortilis Camp were an amazing introduction to Africa!!! After a brief stop in Nairobi, we boarded a small plane (Safarilinks airline) to Amboseli. Cheli & Peacock arranged the air transfers, flights and our stay at Tortilis Camp. There was one small mixup about the game drives but Tortilis management worked with us on that issue. The facility is... More

Andrea and Manuela manage this lovely camp in an amazing setting facing Mount Kilimanjaro. The individual permanent tented camps are large and well appointed with running water and electricity. Wildlife wanders on the perimeter of the camp and the watering hole means one sees elephants, monkeys and other wildlife very close to the main lodge. Service is very attentive.

My wife, 17 yr old son, and I visited Tortilis for 3 nights. Wow! Comfortable tents, great service, wonderful food, and wildlife galore! Our guide, Alex, was terrific. The wildlife drives (and walks) were exciting, informative, and fun. Wonderful place to stay.

A beautiful camp well situated for views of Kili however due to cloud cover we only had occasional glimpses. If that is the main reason for visiting check the weather "history" and plan around it. Our favourite place was in the bar area which overlooks a waterhole visited by elephants and other animals.The Italian couple who manage the camp are... More
