What a great way to get away from Nairobi and all the very early Christmas fuss. We've had 2 wonderful nights in Tortilis Camp in Amboseli and came back feeling revived and ready for the festivities. Great Family Tent for us. We were two adults and three young children and the tents were interconnected with plenty of space for everyone.... More

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights in mid-November and had an utterly wonderful experience. This was the start of our first ever trip to Kenya (and first ever trip to Africa) and it set the bar incredibly high for everywhere else.

No matter what thesaurus one might consult, there just aren't enough superlatives to describe Tortilis Camp at Amboseli NP and its spectacular setting overlooking a wildlife-attracting pool backdropped by snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro. Add to that a wonderfully warm welcome by Andrea and Manula; exceptional service by delightful, friendly staff; luxurious accommodation; gourmet meals; some of the best game drives we've... More

We spent here one night with my family (3 children of 5, 3 and 1 year). We stayed in the family tent that is very comfortable, close to the main area and with a private swimming pool we really enjoyed our stay (and our children also!). I really discovered another amboseli! I came 1 year ago in another lodge and... More

Amboseli was the first stop on our Kenya/Tanzania safari. We were lucky to have two clear days so Kilimanjaro. We arrived at Tortillas after a short game drive to lovely hosts. We were welcomed and enjoyed our drinks. We were then shown to our tent. We were in one of the farthest tents in the camp. For being so far... More

Our three night stay was perfect. The setting, the service, the staff, the game drives--it all was just wonderful! One nice touch is that Tortilis has access to the conservancies adjacent to the park--and their guides can go off road in the conservancies, giving them greater flexibility in their guiding. This camp gets everything right.

The lounge and dining areas were the best feature of this property for sure. It was wonderful sitting in those big comfy chairs in the lounge, sipping wine and watching the world go by.

Manuella and Andrea are just great hosts with wonderful and attentive staff. This is a fantastic facility with all of the luxuries that one can get in a national park.
