What sets Finch Hattons apart for celebrations?

Imagine looking up from a magnificent seven-course meal deep within the African bush to find your favourite person – or people – gathered around you. Imagine spending your days together exploring Tsavo’s natural beauty, enjoying sundowners with views over Mount Kilimanjaro, and gazing at the stars on one of our viewing decks. Imagine the memories you’ll create. At Finch Hattons, we pride ourselves on our unobtrusive and sensitive approach to celebrations – we know that you want first-class service and absolute privacy, and we’re here to make it a reality.

How many people can Finch Hattons host?

We can host 38 people in our camp, and you are welcome to book out Finch Hattons for your exclusive use. If your party is larger, we will help you arrange additional accommodation at other camps nearby.

What locations are available for me to use?

You can choose to enjoy your meals and refreshments in a range of locations – why not try a different spot every time? Arguably the most memorable place is in the beauty of our natural surroundings. Our al fresco feasts range from a bush breakfast laid out on the plains to elegant dinners served beneath the African sky. You can also make use of our dining pavilion, star gazing terrace, and bar and lounge.

What activities are available?

There’s no shortage of activities to keep you busy while you’re at Finch Hattons. Day and night game drives, bush walks, full-day hikes and outings to the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary, Mzima Springs, Chyulu Hills, Amboseli National Park and Lake Jipe are all on offer. A cultural visit to the Maasai town of Iltilal can also be arranged, where you can observe the traditions of the Maasai people first-hand. If you choose to stay in camp, you can relax on one of our many viewing decks, watch our resident hippos and crocodiles wallow in the nearby springs, or enjoy an indulgent massage at our spa.

What activities are available for children?

Finch Hattons offers a dedicated children’s programme to ensure that your little ones’ time in Kenya isn’t only happy and fun, but educational and memorable too. Our various activities include bush survival classes, guided walks to learn about the area’s fauna and flora, and lessons on how to identify animals and birds by their footprints, spoor and calls. Our resource centre is a mine of information on Tsavo, including its history, geology, ecosystems and wildlife.

Meet our passionate

TEAM

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.

The result is a one-on-one experience with Africa; this is the bush in all of its immediate and unapologetic beauty.

The interior design of our tents is reminiscent of the golden days of African safaris. Our suites feature indoor and outdo or showers, copper bathtubs, creamy white linen, gentle lighting, beautiful hardwood writing tables, intricate chandeliers, ornately carved chests, vintage carpets, and all the conveniences you would expect of a first-class offering.
