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.

My wife and I have recently returned home from our travels to East Africa and to Amboseli. This trip was a celebration our 30th wedding anniversary and Amboseli was our first destination in Africa.

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.

This rustic and cozy permanent camp is a diamond in the rough. The lounge and dining area sit on a hill overlooking the park and a watering hole where plenty of wildlife come to drink. The tents, which sit down below, are quiet and cozy, with all the amenities you'd want. The staff aimed to please and the gourmet food... More

We stayed at Tortilis camp for 2 nights in Late August and we had a fantastic time. The views from the restaurant of Kilimanjaro are amazing. The game drives in Amboseli were among the highlights of our trip. There are hundreds of elephants in the swamp every day and we were also lucky to see a Cheetah chase some gazelle... More

Dear Matthew, Thank you so much for your review. We hope you’ll decide to come back one day and maybe in a different season to enjoy a completely different Amboseli - wonderfully green, wet, with plenty of magnificent birds! We'd love to see you again. Kind regards, Andrea, Manuela and all at Tortilis Camp More

This camp is located in the Amboseli National Park. We were here mid-September and the weather was perfect though a bit chilly in the early mornings (lows in the 40's and highs in the 80's.)
