Activities at Tortilis Camp included morning and night game drives in open 4×4 vehicle through Aboseli National Park as well as the camp’s 30,000 acre private Kitirua Conservancy, which is the western part of the Amboseli ecosystem. Guided walking safaris are also offered and are a wonderful way to take in the bush life and get a feel for Africa underfoot.
Immerse yourself in the local life with a cultural visit to a local Masai homestead. Known for their beautiful bead work, spear in hand and bright red colored “shukkas” (blankets worn as clothes). The Masai co-exist with wildlife as they are traditionally nomadic and pastoral, they live off their cattle and goats; this is their lifestyle, jobs, and currency – it is thanks to this lifestyle that vast tracts of wilderness teaming with wildlife have been preserved.
For a relaxing start to your day, take a moment to sit back, enjoy the spectacular views, the smells, the colors, and the gentle breeze with a bush breakfast. Enjoy a full breakfast, al fresco, in the middle of the plains, surrounded by wildlife. Another great safari tradition are“Sundowners” – after a day of safari; stop, watch the spectacular sunset in traditional style with a gin and tonic in hand!
