Tortilis Camp, Kenya

Tortilis Camp is widely regarded as the prime location for witnessing the majesty of Africa’s largest mountain, Kilimanjaro.

Situated in the Amboseli basin, the raised camp offers unrivaled views over the Kenyan plains, aptly named after the flat-topped tree Acacia Tortilis.

Renowned for its diversity of wildlife including elephants, lions, hyena and cheetah, Tortilis Camp is host to a multitude of avian species, and boasts a plethora of bird nests which hang gracefully above the tents for a spectacular dawn chorus.

Winner of the prestigious eco-tourism award, Tortilis is a pioneer for low impact, high comfort tourism. Accompanied by experienced Masai guides, safari guests have exclusive access to a 30,000 acre conservancy and have the opportunity to walk the plains, enjoy a bush breakfast and witness the world renowned Kenyan sundowner.

If you would like to experience the unique atmosphere and incredible setting of Tortilis Camp, get in touch with us today to discuss the requirements for your bespoke safari.


Tortilis Camp benefits from incredible views of Kilimanjaro, rising out of the semi-arid bush studded plains. Standing at 5,149m (16,893 ft) above sea level, Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest mountain, and the highest free standing mountain in the world. Now dormant, Kilimanjaro is composed of three volcanic cones; Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira.
