Our top 3 experience in East Africa
Finch Hattons is for the traveller who wants an experience off the beaten track. Tsavo West is a hidden gem in Kenya. It is such a unique place that offers some of the most incredible landscapes. There are no guarantees of what you will see and you may not see as much game as in the Mara, but everything is there! The lodge has a very homely feel and attends to your every need. The luxurious tents are spacious and beautiful and the staff goes out of their way to give you the best experience. The food is great and we love spending time at the spa, gym, viewing tower etc. So much to do. We have been to Finch close to 10 times and we will keep coming back. Don't miss the sunrise in Chyulu Hills. It is out of this world.
A lovely lodge BUT with little regard for the environment
The place has great food , good service and excellent rooms. The one factor that brings its overall quality down in this day and age is their lack of attention to the environment . They run a massive diesel generator from early hours in the morning to 10pm at night. There is no understanding about light pollution in the bush and from your lovely rooms you look out at lit up pathways , and other rooms , until at 10 pm the generator goes off and you're in darkness. At 5 am it comes on again wakes you up. In todays world and in Tsavo there is plenty of sun and solar would work a treat . Therefore having such great attention to detail in the rooms and serving great food is admirable but if you want to be world class , you have to value the environment and here is the shortcoming . To end on a positive note the staff were friendly , the food was great , they have a great spa , swimming pool so the lodge is very comfortable . Rooms are well thought out and linen is first class.

Gorgeous property, excellent staff!
Finch Hattons was just as it was advertised - luxury at its best! It's a gorgeous property, built around a natural spring that is home to hippos and frequented by other wildlife. It also offers amazing birdwatching opportunities. The staff is kind, and willing to take care of requests with a smile. I requested that the tent flaps be closed because the high winds were making our room really windy. They took care of it rightaway. Indian food options for my husband and mom, no problem. Done. Extraordinary massage therapist - Violet - helped with sinus issues that I was having because of the Tsavo dust. Assumpter, who was our server during meals was amazing! When I asked for coffee and she responded with "Double Cappuccino?", I knew I'd met my soul sister! LOL! Jonathan, the camp manager was there whenever we needed him. He was amazing too. The outdoor shower? OMG! That was superb! What a fabulous experience. Sleeping listening to animal sounds at night, safe inside raised, sturdy tents - amazing! The food - extraordinary! We loved this place. I only felt a bit disappointed that they didn't check if our room had milk for coffee. And... the doors were a pain to lock. Another thing - the experience could be a bit more personal. We loved chatting with the chefs and the camp managers at the other camps we stayed at. We would have loved that experience at Finch Hattons too. But those are personal preferences and minor things really. The property is spectacular and it has stellar people taking care of you. You really don't need much more. We'd love to go back.
Amazing property. Food was delicious and The service was excellent. Staff warm and pleasant. They organized a nice surprise sundowner and a lovely dinner under the star lit sky. Bed was very comfortable and the rain shower was a lovely experience. Can’t wait to go back.
