Tortilis offers a vast variety of activities, including open game drives, guided walking safaris and the chance of interacting with the local Maasai hosts. Nestled by the trees with comfy sunbeds, the pool provides guests with the perfect relaxation spot. Its proximity to Amboseli affords the most dramatic views of the famous Kilimanjaro Mountain. Huge elephant herds often roam between Tortilis and Kilimanjaro – photography opportunities are endless!
