It is an elegant small lodge nestled on the side of Llimbarishi Hill with magnificent views across the plains to the highest free standing mountain in the world. It is situated in a pristine area on the southwest border of the park.

    Amboseli is best known for its unrivalled views of Kilimanjaro and the local elephant population. There are over 1000 elephants in the parks eco-system, featuring some of the largest in Africa.

    In our opinion

    We believe this camp is fantastic because of the following unique features:

    Unrivalled views of Mt. Kilimanjaro

    Amboseli is home to elephant families that have been closely followed and studied by world renowned researcher Cynthia Moss for over 25 years. Tortilis' guides know the families and their histories intimately. These are some of the biggest elephants seen in Africa, as they have been protected for generations.

    Guests have access to both the famous Amboseli National Park and the 30,000 acre Kitirua private conservancy adjoining the park.
