great African wilderness. Finch Hatton's 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. It 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 hippopotamus, 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 here, 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, WC, hot and cold running water and showers. All tents have panoramic views of the surrounding springs and forests and large deck balconies with chairs, tables and daybed. Finch Hatton's Camp has become renowned for its excellent cuisine based on its creativity and attention to detail.
