Kitirua Private Conservancy
Bordering Amboseli National Park
Just 140 kilometres South of Nairobi is Kenya’s second most popular reserve and is home to Tortilis Camp. The park is famous for large groups of Elephant that sometimes number over a thousand animals in one herd and the world’s largest free standing mountain, Kilimanjaro.
The diverse habitats and lush vegetation makes Amboseli one of the best wildlife viewing parks in the world. 600 species of birds, Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Buffalo, Gazelle and Zebra are all in healthy populations. The camp has the best views of Kilimanjaro and guests have the added benefit of having access to the park and Kitirua Wildlife Conservancy.
From the open main guest area the plains stretch for miles and views of Kilimanjaro are simply spectacular. Below this is a fire area for pre-dinner drinks as well as a swimming pool nestled in amongst the bush.
Tortilis Camp has 15 Spacious safari tents with twin or double beds. Tents have been suspended under permanent thatch roofs that provide protection from the elements. A small deck at the front of each tent is a wonderful place to relax during the day. En-suite bathrooms are to the rear of each tent.
The Tortilis Private House and family tents are slightly above the main camp, up on a hill and share a swimming pool with incredible views of Mount Kilimanjaro.
The camp is 100% solar powered, a first of it’s kind and reassuring to know your stay will leave a minimal ecological impact.
