The Finch Family


Jonathan Mutisya – Camp Manager

Jonathan is building himself a reputation as a pioneer of the camp as much as perhaps Denys Finch Hatton himself! Jonathan has overseen over two decades at the camp, from the humble beginnings of helping build the camp itself in 1992 to the position of Camp Manager presently. Passionate and knowledgeable of the native flora & fauna, the surrounding eco-systems and the great African wilderness, Jonathan looks forward to making your visit as special as the place he calls home – the Tsavo.

Kennedy Karembu – Executive Chef

No safari is complete without experiencing a culinary feast, and at Finch Hattons we have built a legendary reputation for serving culinary delights to match the tastes of sophisticated food connoisseurs the world over. Executive Chef Kennedy Karembu describes his style of cooking as soul, simply because he cooks from his heart. His cooking philosophy is based on a farm-to-table concept where he uses fresh local ingredients infused with a variety of flavour profiles to create memorable dishes. Kennedy gets fulfillment from interacting with his diners and seeing them leave the restaurant satisfied and longing for the next visit. His mantra – A chef is an artist, and a plate his canvas.
