OUR CAMP AND FACILITIES

Finch Hattons’ camp and facilities are fully equipped with everything you need to make your stay more than comfortable and more than memorable.

Our rebuild was carefully designed to maximise the opportunities to view our resident animals and birdlife. Sightings of hippo, crocodiles, elephants and various antelope around the camp are common, to say nothing of the 500 bird species that call Tsavo home.

From our many viewing decks and dining areas, you can also enjoy the vast vistas that stretch in every direction. Join us for breakfast at the open pavilion where majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro can be seen.

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 outdoor 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.

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.
