Set in the Amboseli national park, the Elewana Tortilis camp features a selection of luxury tents and private rooms. The perfect base for exploring the wildlife park, Elewana Tortilis is named for the flat thorn trees that one can find in the park. Its connection with the park is an important part of its ethos.
Luxury camping Kenyan style
Elewana Tortilis comprises 16 tents, a family tent and a private residence. Tents are thatched with local makuti leaves, and each has an ensuite bathroom and spacious veranda; a great place for enjoying evening ‘sundowners’ whilst watching the sun set over the park, cool gin and tonic in hand. The private residence also boasts its own pool which is perfect for chilling out after a day spent roaming the park. Enjoy an al fresco ‘bush breakfast’ surrounded by wildlife under the shadow of Kilimanjaro - Africa’s highest peak which stands at 5895 meters above sea level and dominates the surrounding skyline.
The Amboseli national park is a centre for elephant research, which makes the Elewana Tortilis camp the ideal place to come face to face with these gentle giants. Expert guides take you out by 4x4 for game drives or wildlife walks which are guided by local Masai. Visits to Masai homesteads are also available. Take advantage of these trips to obtain a more profound understanding of life on the reserve.
Relaxing under the sun
After days spent exploring, relax in the cool waters of the swimming pool. Head to the fully-stocked bar to carry on the party. For those craving relaxation, poolside massages are also available.
Elewana Tortilis camp employs 60% of its staff from the local community, making sure they give back to the area that hosts them on this land, making it a responsible way to travel.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
