Elewana Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree Acacia Tortilis, a sight synonymous with East Africa. It is situated in one of Amboseli’s areas of Acacia Tortilis woodland, with the majestic backdrop of Africa’s highest mountain, the snow-capped Kilimanjaro. Game drives, walks, sundowners and bush meals are enjoyed both inside the park, and within a private 30,000-acre game where Tortilis Camp is located.
Accommodations are designed with comfort in mind, with king or twin beds and elegant ensuite bathrooms. Exclusive accommodations are available in the luxurious Private House and Family Tent, set separately to the main camp, each enjoying access to a shared private pool and stunning views to Kilimanjaro.
