Elewana Tortilis Camp is a very comfortable tented safari lodge set around a small hill in a private concession on the northern edge of Amboseli National Park, facing the towering Mount Kilimanjaro.
Although not as small and intimate as many properties in Kenya, Elewana Tortilis Camp is comfortably the best property in Amboseli and its location is very good for game viewing, views of Kilimanjaro and enjoying a certain degree of exclusivity. The camp has an authentic safari feel and the tents are very comfortable without being overtly luxurious, with half the tents facing Kilimanjaro.
The size of the property and the permanent feel of the central areas means that Tortilis is very much a ‘lodge’, with individual dining and fairly set schedules, but the camp has a history of good management and is always enjoyed by guests wanting to experience Amboseli. There are two good family units and swimming pools making it a popular options for families. Amboseli is known for its elephant populations, especially during the long dry season (July to October), its proximity to Mount Kilimanjaro (the best place in Kenya for views of the mountain) and the park also offers good predator viewing and birding.
