Conscious of the environment
An essential aspiration for everyone at Finch Hattons is to be conscious of conserving the environment. Therefore, we only use the best sustainable materials at the Camp. For example, roofs are made from sustainably sourced Makuti palm leaves with a natural cooling effect, and our water heaters are solar-powered.
We specifically chose the Camp’s location for its replenishing, natural water springs around which the Camp was designed and built. The springs serve as an oasis for wildlife and birdlife, and as the Camp is unfenced, animals are free to roam around and drink from the springs, as they have done for centuries. The spring water, fresh from the Chyulu Hills, is also bottled and served to our guests.
The dining experiences at Finch Hattons are legendary! We only use the freshest, locally sourced and organically grown ingredients to complement our ethos of environmental consciousness. Grass-fed beef, fresh fruit, vegetables and fresh seafood delivered directly to the Camp from Kenya’s Coast are examples of what you will find at the table. Enjoy mealtimes amongst the most incredible landscapes, views and vistas with orange sunsets and drinks under the stars. We always take care to leave no trace behind and educate guests on the importance of conserving the natural environment. Tsavo is our home and, at the time, our guest’s home as well.
All about family
Here at Finch Hattons, we welcome people of all ages and group sizes. We have incredible experience options for solo travellers, couples and families with children. Our luxury two-bedroom and lounge suits cater for large families and are suitable for disabled ambulant guests. There is a children’s programme for kids over six, keeping the young ones having fun and educated all day. We aim at passing down our knowledge of conservation to the young adventurers under our care and instil our passion for nature in them. We offer bush survival classes, guided walks and lessons on Tsavo’s history, ecosystems and wildlife. Parents can share these experiences with their children or take some time to themselves.
To conclude, Finch Hattons is a magical place where guests feel at ease and home. We strive to instil our passion for conserving the environment and wildlife in the Camp by educating our guests and treating them like family. Our superb service has not gone unnoticed, and we are so proud to be a part of a community that helps connect people with nature.
