Tortilis Camp Review

This multi-award-winning rustic bush camp, refurbished in 2011, is named after the flat-topped Acacia tortilis trees that surround the camp. The main thatch-roof open bar, lounge, and dining room overlook a water hole and have superb views of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru in neighboring Tanzania. Your large tent sits under a huge thatch canopy and is raised up on a small platform with wooden floors, a king-size bed, and an en-suite bathroom with hot showers and flush toilets. If you want to catch up on your journal or bird and mammal lists, then relax on the comfortable furniture on your personal sitting area, or laze by the pool in between activities (such as game drives or guided bush walks, which the lodge provides at an extra cost). There's also a family house with one double and one twin-bed room if you don't fancy splitting up between two tents. The mainly northern-Italian food is delicious and is whipped up from the owner's original family recipes. The food is made even tastier by homegrown herbs and vegetables. There's a minimum two-night-stay requirement.
