Five Generations of Hospitality

Upholding the legacy of our founding fathers

Forged by a fortuitous introduction through mutual friends, Finch Hattons was established by renowned hotelier Peter Frank and KS Gehlot in 1993. This remarkable partnership instilled our core values and set the unprecedented standard that continues to define our camp 30 years later.

After Peter’s retirement in 2010, the mantle of operation was passed onto the KG Group, a multi-disciplinary group of companies owned by the Gehlot Family. With Indian ancestry, the Gehlot Family has established firm roots in Kenya over five generations, with a captivating history in the Tsavo region that serves as a testament to their enduring legacy.

They are proud to continue to uphold the esteemed reputation and level of excellence earned by Finch Hattons founding fathers.
