A lovely surprise awaits guests staying at Elewana Tortilis Camp! This camp, perfectly situated on the side of Liimbarish Hill in a private conservancy adjacent to Amboseli National Park, showcases outstanding views of Mount Kilimanjaro and large herds of elephant families that roam the parks dusty and stunningly arid landscape.
But another animal species that is not often seen has also flocked to the area – flamingos! After a heavy rainy season, the lake is brimming with life, as hundreds of flamingos have arrived and made this their new home, adding to the dramatic scenery known as Amboseli.
Amboseli National Park covers 392km² and has a mixed topography of plains, acacia woodland, rocky thorn bush, swamps, and marshes. This diversity, along with a long dry season, ensures excellent viewing of animals living in this natural habitat. It also has a dry Pleistocene lake basin that houses a temporary lake, Lake Amboseli, after the rains.
Guests staying at Elewana Tortilis Camp can explore this diverse (and wonderfully pink) area in a number of ways. You can head out on a game drive in a luxury 4×4 vehicle with a highly trained Elewana Guide that will share his knowledge and passion of this area. Guests will see how the mountain dominates the landscape behind and the Pleistocene lake awash with pink in front, plains game amble by with a curious look as you savor every moment to memory.
