BUSH AND BEACH Safari Experience

Bush and Beach Kenyan experience

This package invites you to experience the very best of Kenya, from its magnificent bush to its untouched beaches.

Days 1 to 4: Finch Hattons

Your adventure begins at the award-winning Finch Hattons, where you are invited to lose your self in Tsavo’s endless landscapes and marvel at its resident elephants, lions, leopards and abundant birdlife. Wake up early for a morning game drive or sleep in and go on a guided evening game walk instead. Enjoy exceptional meals at the camp or deep in the bush, and relax at our Chyulu Spa. With the help of our warm and knowledgeable team, your days are yours to craft as you wish.

Days 5 to 8: Ocean Spa Lodge

With your hunger for the African wilderness satisfied – at least temporarily, the bush always beckons you back – the next phase of your journey takes you to Kenya’s pristine coast. At the luxurious Ocean Spa Lodge, a short flight from Tsavo, you can spend your days with your body immersed in the Indian Ocean’s warm waters or in the largest infinity pool in East Africa. The lodge’s spa is on hand to ensure that the world beyond becomes a thing of the past, and its kitchen will offer you the best seafood the ocean has to offer.

Meet our passionate


Finch Hattons is run by a passionate and experienced Kenyan team, about 60% of whom have been with the camp for over 15 years and about 40% since the very beginning. The original group joined as construction workers in 1993 and were trained on site. Many of the others contributed to the camp’s massive renovation in 2013. In very symbolic ways, this camp is theirs – they helped to build it from the ground up.

Our team is here to answer any of your questions about our remarkable corner of the world, and to make your time here exceptional in every way. Please don’t hesitate to speak to us if there’s anything you need.
