Camp Flying Safari - Amboseli
Tortilis camp is a magical escape from the hustle and bustle of life in the fast
lane. Early European explorers met derision and disbelief when they reported a
snow capped mountain close to the equator - Mount Kilimanjaro. Feelings of disbelief
and awe hit you as you arrive at Tortilis camp, facing this magnificent mountain,
as the sun dazzles the white snowcap.
Tortilis camp is a charming, rustic
tented camp, shaded by a natural forest of Acacia Tortilis thorn trees after which
the camp is named. The trees and shrubs bustle with bird life, the views seem
endlessacross the plains to Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru in Tanzania.
