Finch Hattons Camp

Finch Hattons camp lies at the heart of Tsavo West National Park and is part of Kenya’s single largest national game park.

The camp is set on 35 acre private concession at the south western corner of Tsavo West National Park. A oasis in this semi arid land nurtured by an underground spring that constantly feed water into three pools before percolating in the volcanic terrain. Hippopotamus who inhibit these pools spend their days wallowing in the shallows while their nights are spent grazing around the camp compound. Crocodiles, terrapins and monitor lizards sunbathing at the water’s edge and other diverse game troop in and out of the unfenced. Bird life at Finch Hattons is spectacular with over 200 locally recorded species.

The tents are wonderfully surrounded by Yellow barked Acacia Xanthophlea offering comfort and style in a most idyllic setting. Many tents boast magnificent views overlooking the hippo pools and springs.

Finch Hattons is one man’s dream to create an ideal, allowing the visitor an opportunity to experience and relive a unique and the golden era of the safari with elegance, first class comforts and the finest cuisine surrounded by the spectacle of the great African wilderness.

Named after Denys Finch Hatton, an English aristocrat first travelled to East Africa in early part of the 19th century at the young age of 24 and fell in head over heels with this beloved country Kenya. Due to his great love of the African bush and fascination with wildlife turned him into a dedicated big game hunter. He had a deep understanding and appreciation of nature in addition to the customs and traditions of the Kenyan people.

Denys fame for his refusal to abandon home comforts, culture and cuisine while on safari and insisted that his guests dine with finest china and crystal while enjoying music on gramophone recordings of Mozart. In inimitable comfort and style he introduced them to his world.

Finch Hatton became a byword for stylish, successful safaris. His clientele included many American and European tycoons and aristocrats and in 1928 and 1930, he played host to Britain’s Prince of Wales (later Duke of Windsor)

At Finch Hattons, we have preserved the ideals that Denys lived for – a dedication to elegance and style coupled with a passionate love of the Kenyan wilderness and a long forgotten way of life.
