We had 3 days at this luxurious tented camp with only one other guest (the lovely Sheri from Washington DC) in residence at the end of April. We were most impressed by the personal welcome and guidance from Andrea and Manuela (the managers). Our guide, Ali Makenzie, was brilliant in every way. It only rained at night. Kilimanjero was a magnificent backdrop to the abundance of elephants & hippos. We also saw buffalo, giraffes, zebra, baboons, Thomson gazelles, Grant gazelles, bat-eared fox, hyeanas with babies, cheetah, warthogs, serval, jackals, ostrich and many others. The birdlife was amazing. We did not expect to see so much in the rainy season but it was a perfect time for us fair-skinned Brits. The staff at Tortillis were exceptional as was the food and kitchen garden. I cannot recommend this place enough. We plan to go back in October.
