Tsavo National Park is Kenya’s largest and oldest wildlife reserve, home to the majestic Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks. Spanning over 22,000 square kilometres with the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro towering silently in the distance, Tsavo is larger than several European countries and six times the size of the Maasai Mara.

Tsavo National Park has seen and survived both of the major World Wars, leaving behind some of the most beautiful battle scars in the form of heritage sites and monuments. Tales from the primal prehistoric and evolving modern worlds intertwine, etched in our history books, adding another dimension to this incredibly precious corner of Kenya.

Beyond the boundless open space, rich history and unrivaled biodiversity lies millions of acres of unadulterated African Wilderness. A place where the preservation of wildlife, culture, community and history are celebrated in its purest, most authentic form. These mysteries are yours to discover, as the natural beauty of Tsavo National Park envelops and leaves you with a permanent imprint on the soul.

Empowering Locals

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.

We were a family of 10 staying at Finch Hattons over Christmas. We, like many families, have Christmas traditions which can sometimes be hard to deliver on when away from home. Johnathan and the team at Finch Hattons were so incredibly accommodating, helpful and gracious and delivered on every single thing we asked for - including cookies and milk for Santa, and a dedicated room (with a Christmas tree just for us!) for us to open our gifts on Christmas morning. The food and service were second to none - all delivered by a team of incredible people. Our stay at Finch Hattons was just perfect. There simply is no other place on the planet that could have made us feel more welcomed or cared for. Thank you from all of us, and we will most certainly be back!

We stayed for 4 nights in June and it was honestly one of the best experiences of our lives! The camp was so beautiful and private, the lake in the middle with the hippos and other wildlife on the very edge of your balcony was amazing to wake up to and the amount of animals we saw on our game drives was unbelievable! The tents were beautiful and very comfortable. The food was 5* and the service was even better. We also visited the spa and did a yoga session whilst there which was amazing! The staff at the campsite are what made our stay so special as they literally couldn't do enough for us. We want to give a special thanks to our guide Richard who was so knowledgeable and made sure we saw as many animals as possible and really made our game drives amazing. I also want to thank the rest of the staff as every single person we met made us feel like family and really made it a memorable experience. I couldn't recommend this campsite enough and we can't wait to visit again in the future!!!
