Denys Finch Hatton, an English aristocrat, first travelled to East Africa in 1911 at the age of 24. His name soon became synonymous with elegance, style and adventure. His courage, his charm and his insistence on crystal and fine cuisine while on safari have been recreated in this camp named after him.
Finch Hattons, on a 35-acre concession, surrounds 3 crystal clear pools of a natural freshwater spring. The camp was extensively refurbished in 2012; the tents, spread along the water’s edge and shaded by yellow barked acacia xanthophlea trees, view the surrounding plains on which a wide variety of game has been sighted.
The camp has a luxury presidential suite, 14 tented suites and 2 family suites. All the tents are en-suite, furnished with brass fittings, Swahili chests and antique writing desks, and have large deck balconies.
The elevated pool is filled with filtered mineral water. The country house styled lounge and bar play classical music including Finch Hatton’s favourite selection of Mozart. A mezzanine floor houses a cosy library and reading room. An open air terrace, where breakfast and lunch are served, gives views across the springs and hippo pools to the snow capped peak of Mt Kilimanjaro. Dinner is served in the formal dining room.
