Community Engagement & Ecological Conservation
Working together with local tribes to protect the environment and its wildlife
In recognition of the rich heritage and cultural diversity of Tsavo National Park, Finch Hattons has made it a mission to recruit and retain the talented Maasai and Kamba individuals to assume key roles at the camp, fostering a sense of kinship and solidarity among the 15 different tribes represented.
Drawing inspiration from the indigenous communities’ deep reverence for the land and wildlife, the camp has forged enduring relationships with the Maasai to the west, the Kamba to the east, and the Taita to the south. We believe in the transformative power of grassroots conservation initiatives that integrate economic development and wilderness preservation, empowering our communities to thrive while protecting the precious ecosystems we all call home.
We are proud to inspire a new generation of environmentalists and conservationists who share our commitment to preserving Kenya’s natural treasures for future generations.
