Overview of Finch Hattons Luxury Tented Camp

Finch Hattons is a luxury tented safari camp that combines its love for Tsavo with world-class facilities. The camp is completely isolated, so much so that you would be forgiven for forgetting that the rest of the world exists at all. In this place, it’s just you, the vast and varied terrain that stretches in every direction, and the many beasts and birds that call it home.

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 was 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.

Setting the standard in luxury camps, Finch Hatton’s hospitality has become synonymous with fine dining, exemplary service, and outstanding safaris.

The 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.

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.

How many people can Finch Hattons host?

Finch Hattons can host 38 people in the camp, and you are welcome to book out Finch Hattons for your exclusive use. If your party is larger, we will help you arrange additional accommodation at other camps nearby.
