Finch Hattons Camp
Finch Hatton’s Camp lies at the heart of Tsavo West National Park, part of Kenya’s single largest game reserve. The camp surrounds a natural freshwater spring, flowing through three crystal clear pools, with tents along the water’s edge. The camp is unfenced and wild. A wide variety of game has been sighted on the surrounding plains. The springs are home to a resident pod of hippos, which spend their days wallowing in the ponds and their nights grazing around the camp. Crocodiles and a healthy population of terrapins and monitor lizards also live there, and are often seen sunning themselves at the waters edge. Bird life at Finch Hatton’s is spectacular, with over 200 locally recorded species.
The camp accommodates up to 50 people, in large safari tents with twin beds, en suite bathrooms, brass fittings, large mirrors, WC, hot and cold running water and showers. Each tent has a clothes rack, wooden Swahili chest, bookshelves and an antique writing desk. The tents have electricity, with shaver outlets for 110v and 220v, hairdryer and battery charger outlet for 220v as well as a fully stocked minibar fridge. All tents have panoramic views of the surrounding springs and forests, large deck balconies with chairs, tables and daybed.
