Walk hand-in-hand with the Maasai

Amboseli National Park rests so finely on the border that Kilimanjaro’s snow-capped peaks can be seen rising from the earth from the vantage point of this Kenyan park. The area is populated by local Maasai, who’ve been walking ancient trails since childhood and account for over half the guides at Tortilis Camp

The wildlife wanders freely between the park and private lands resulting in conservation efforts being implemented by the community. Tortilis Camp pays a fixed rent to Maasai landowners in the area in order to preserve the 12,000ha wildlife corridor, Kitirua Conservancy, which connects Amboseli to Tanzania. In turn, the Maasai people take guests at Tortilis on guided tours through Kitirua, where their intimate wealth of knowledge about the land and its animals can be showcased. 

Mount Kilimanjaro watches over the 16 tents that make up camp. All tents feature an en-suite bathroom and verandah offering magnificent views of the mountain. A family tent can accommodate a group of four and shares a swimming pool with the Private House. Activities include game drives, guided walks, spa treatments and cultural interactions with the Maasai.
