Named for the legendary Kenya adventurer, Denys Finch Hatton, this luxurious and privately owned camp recreates his impressive style – when dinner was served on fine china with silver and crystal, while the gentle strains of Mozart played in the background. Finch Hatton’s camp relives this elegance with exceptional comfort and fine cuisine, surrounded by the spectacle of the great Tsavo National Park.

The camp accommodates up to 50 people in luxurious tents, and surrounds a natural freshwater spring, flowing through three crystal clear pools, with tents along the water’s edge. The springs are home to a resident pod of hippopotamus, wallowing in the ponds, along with crocodiles and a healthy population of terrapins and monitor lizards. Bird life at Finch Hatton’s is excellent, with over 200 locally recorded species.

Facilities and activities on offer are excellent, and the ideally located pool has a shaded area surrounded by indigenous trees. Guests can enjoy a swim or just relax with their books from the extensive library, before the afternoon game drives.
