To stay at Finch Hattons is to experience Out of Africa’s glamorous colonial lifestyle while being surrounded by the spectacle of Kenya’s enchanting Tsavo West wilderness and Mount Kilimanjaro mystery. Taking its cue from the old-world luxury safaris of the larger-than-life adventurer Denys Finch Hatton, this luxury tented eco-camp encapsulates the golden era of the safari at its finest—one where world-class cuisine is served on fine china under the stars, Mozart floats from the nearby gramophone, and wildebeest thunder across the plain.
Finch Hattons is uniquely positioned around several acacia-lined natural spring-fed pools, bringing guests face-to-face with resident wildlife as they wallow in the waters. Each of the camp’s 31 waterfront suites supports an eclectic mix of elegance and eco-luxury, fusing modern design with local charm for the ultimate adventure-meets-opulence stay. Open floor plans, indoor and outdoor showers, freestanding copper bathtubs, ornately-carved Masai chests, and hardwood writing tables harken back to the golden days of safari, while large viewing decks with panoramic views of the surrounding hippo pools invite the sounds, tastes, and smells of Africa directly to the front door. 17 tented guest suites, 13 two-bedroom family suites, and the singular Finch Hattons Suite are not only the definition of luxury, but also ensure minimal impact on the surrounding ecosystem with sustainable materials and practices.
In Denys Finch Hatton’s legendary luxury safaris, dinner was served on fine china with silver and crystal while the gentle melodies of Mozart played in the background. Thus the tradition continues at Finch Hattons. The camp’s dining experience is second to none, with bush breakfasts, al fresco lunches, and candlelit seven-course gourmet dinners accompanied by fine wine, fine china, cut crystal, and the never-ending views of the springs and snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro. From gourmet dining and a premium cigar lounge to refreshing dips in the infinity pool and a personalized Africology wellness spa, Finch Hattons has it all. In between game drives, guests are encouraged to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar, partake in yoga lessons on the yoga platform, or recline in the star gazing lounge, losing themselves to the magic of the African sky.
Nestled in the Tsavo West National Park, Finch Hattons is surrounded by 10 million acres of pure untouched wilderness. Tsavo West is one of Kenya’s larger national parks, six times the size of the famous Masai Mara and larger than a number of European countries. Within its boundaries is one of the largest populations of Red Elephants in East Africa, over 500 bird species, and a diversity of wildlife ranging from buffaloes and giraffes to leopards and lions. Guests of Finch Hattons embark on morning, afternoon, and evening game drives, as well as guided bush walks to full explore in full the surrounding flora and fauna. Cultural visits to local Masai homesteads further enhance the Finch Hattons experience, as do the Young Explorer Club activities for younger safari adventurers. From beginning to end, Finch Hattons represents a slice of authentic Kenyan wildlife paradise.Request Information
