Over two decades ago in 1992 Finch Hattons Camp first opened to guests and set the standard in luxury eco tented camps. It is now reopening to yet again reaffirm its position as the ultimate luxury safari camp. Set around an oasis of natural spring pools teeming with wildlife and situated to capture the views towards both Mount Kilimanjaro and the Chyulu Hills, the camp is rich in history and renowned for its cuisine, which is unrivalled by any other camp in the African bush. Guests can indulge in the intense wild surroundings from the comfort of a luxury tent. There are 17 brand new tented suites, a pool, spa, conference facilities, a star gazing terrace and what will undoubtedly become Kenya’s most fabulous yoga deck with views over the Chyulu Hills. The luxury camp is set on 35 acres of unadulterated wilderness in the heart of the Tsavo West National Park, home to over 500 species of birds and a wide variety of other wildlife species including elephants, leopards and giraffe.
Originally built in 1992 by German hotelier Peter Frank and Kishan Gehlot, Finch Hattons draws its inspiration from legendary British aristocrat Denys Finch Hatton who is best known to many as Baroness Karen Blixen’s lover. An adventurous game hunter turned safari guide to fellow aristocrats, Finch Hatton is credited for bringing luxury camping to Tsavo, introducing tourism to Tsavo, and in his numerous exploits crafting a travel destination whose soul, beauty and charm is comparable to none.
“Here at Finch Hattons, we have preserved the ideals that Denys Finch Hatton lived by; a dedication to elegance and style, coupled with a passionate love of the Kenyan wilderness and a long forgotten way of life.”
