After spending over 2 weeks in Kenya and Tanzania, it is very evident that Tortillis is something special. The staff was extremely welcoming from the start. The camp manager Pieter and his wife Daniella were amazing - really meant a lot how great they were. The bartender Freddy was great too, always smiling and after a couple of times just brought us what we liked. The food was surprising delicious; we really didn't have many expectations and we were blown away after the first meal. This Italian food was big city quality in the middle of the bush; you'll be very happy!
This is the only permanent camp that we stayed at and tent #9 was great as it had a great view of Mt Kilimanjaro where we were able to sit and have coffee that was delivered in the morning. Our guide Josep was one on our highlights. This camp has open vehicles which we LOVED and when we head to safari again, it will be a must. Josep is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and shows that he truly loves what he does and makes it his duty to make sure we had a great time. He is truly an asset to the camp!
Now, one of the most memorable things was that they have access to a conservancy that only Tortillis has access too. As this was our first safari and first camp, we didn't know what to expect, but after spending a week at two camps in the Serengeti with vehicles everywhere, you realize just how special this camp is.
And as many others said, the animals and mountain are breathtaking. Lastly, don't miss this camp, you will not regret it!
