Finch Hattons camp is in a 35 acre concession in the heart of Tsavo West National Park - part of Kenya's single largest game park.
The camp accommodates up to 50 people in spacious safari 'tents' attractively constructed in canvas with large windows, wooden flooring and a permanent thatched roof. All have en suite bathrooms, large mirrors, WC, hot and cold running water and showers, and are equipped with a fully stocked mini bar, shaver outlets and hairdryers.
All guest tents are built on elevated platforms with spectacular views of the surrounding springs and forest. Large wooden decks with a comfortable day bed, chairs and table offer a tranquil and relaxing retreat.
Early morning, mid morning and afternoon game drives in the park are in customised, open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles with professional driver guides. Exclusive use of a safari vehicle can be organised by prior arrangement. Escorted Nature Walks are also available and optional Sundowners and/or Bush Breakfasts can also be arranged.
Day excursions to nearby Amboseli National Park (2.5 hours drive) can be arranged with prior notice. This relatively small park is famous for its massive herds of elephants and proximity to Mt Kilimanjaro.
Tsavo is known for its herds of "red elephants", their skins stained by the ochre dust and mud. The park is home to over 12,000 elephant – one of the largest populations in East Africa. Other commonly seen species include giraffe, zebra, eland, buffalo, impala, hartebeest, bushbuck, wildebeest and many more.
