FINCH FAMILY Safari Experience

Finch Family Safari Experience

Finch Hattons is a family-friendly destination, with facilities and activities tailored for every generation. We are one of the only safari camps in Kenya to offer two luxury, 200m2, two-bedroom and lounge suites that are suitable for the youngest and oldest of family members. One of these suites is suitable for disabled ambulant guests.

Young Explorers’ Club

Our Young Explorers’ Club 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. At Finch Hattons, we don’t believe that we inherited the Earth from our ancestors, but that we borrow it from our children. We want to instil a lifelong passion for the bush in the young adventurers under our care, so that they will always appreciate and strive to conserve it.

Engaging Activities

Various activities are available for our younger guests, including 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.

Bonfire Family Time

As parents, you are welcome to be part of this experience or to have some time to yourselves. In the evenings, our Maasai guides share myths and folk stories about the origin of Tsavo’s landscapes and wildlife around a bonfire.

Please note children have to be a minimum of six years old to visit Finch Hattons.

What sets Finch Hattons apart for families?

As a family business, Finch Hattons prides itself on creating an environment that is welcoming and amenable to families. Our services and facilities cater to every age group and interest, ensuring that everyone feels relaxed, energised and entertained during their stay with us.

Do your tents cater for multiple family members?

Yes, we have two family suites that feature two en-suite bedrooms connected by a lounge. The family suites are ideal for larger or multi-generational families.

Do you cater for elderly guests?

Yes, our family suites are ideally suited for elderly family members, who can enjoy Finch Hattons alongside their children and grandchildren without being in a separate tent. One of our family suites is also suitable for ambulant disabled guests.

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. Our Young Explorers’ Club offers a dedicated children’s programme.

Do you offer babysitting services?

No, unfortunately not. Since children under the age of six are not allowed at Finch Hattons, we do not offer babysitting services.

We do offer many activities for children with an excellent childminder, Agnus. Come through to camp and introduce your family to our family.

Are flying doctor’s services available?

AMREF, the flying doctors organisation based in Nairobi, provides air evacuation services in medical emergencies across East Africa, as well as air ambulance transfers between medical facilities. AMREF operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year as a vital link between remote areas and AMREF’s control centre at Wilson Airport in Nairobi.

Our staff will also administer first aid until professional medics arrive.

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.

Setting the standard in luxury camps, Finch Hattons hospitality has become synonymous with fine dining, exemplary service and outstanding safaris.

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.

TENTED SUITES

Designed to be minimally intrusive, our camp’s 17 luxury suites offer sweeping views of the surrounding landscape, as well as total privacy for our guests. The tents’ open-plan design invites the cool breeze that drifts over the nearby natural springs, and brings the sounds and scents of the African bush directly to you. 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.
