In a private conservancy bordering the legendary Amboseli National Park, this original eco-lodge offers a fantastic introduction to local Maasai culture. It also lays on game drives and bush walks in the conservancy, where guests enjoy exclusivity, and within Amboseli itself.

All spacious, the 16 tents accompany a main lounge, a bar and a dining area exquisitely built with natural materials under thatched roofs. A separate house and Family Tent are located slightly separate to the main camp, upon a hill where they share a pool.

  • Tortilis Camp was one of the first eco-lodges of its size and, very proudly, is 100% solar-powered
  • Amboseli is chiefly known for its magnificent elephants – a population of over 1,000 reside in the park, including some of Africa’s largest
  • Tortilis employs around 60% of its staff from the local community, training them from scratch to become professional guides, barmen or waiters. With each employed individual in Kenya supporting an average of 8 dependents, their 40 local staff members potentially support between 300 and 400 community members
  • Walking safaris with local Maasai guides are encouraged at Tortilis, giving guests the opportunity to find out, first-hand, about the intricacies of Maasai culture, and in turn stimulating a pride and desire among the community to preserve their traditions.
  • Tortilis Camp is a conservation-committed camp that supports the mission of the Global Alliance of National Parks
