Tortilis Camp and Amboseli

Tortilis Camp and Amboseli National Park


Tortilis Camp is a luxury tented camp in Amboseli National Park. The park is famous for its elephants and for the spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro in nearby Tanzania. The camp is nestled in a grove of acacia. Like the other tented camps, each tent is in wood shelter and has electricity, bed and running water.

I left the group and spent a couple of days by myself relaxing at Tortilis. The weather improved and the mountain was visible for the first time in several days.

With my encouragement to get close to a huge flock of flamingos, we got stuck. My driver dug around the wheels and I dragged broken logs over to wedge under the wheels of the truck. We continued after a little work.
