Truly was a trip that will not be forgotten. Everyone was very attentive and more than willing to make our stay memorable. So much to see and do. Thanks Finch Hattons for making our stay so much fun! 🤗
A Jewel in the Kenyan Crown!
The flight into Finch Hattons is amazing,and driving through volcanic lava flows is also quite an experience. Beautiful landscape. The lodge is just beautifully placed, nestled amongst trees, and every tent looking out onto the springs that keep the camp surroundings, lush and green. This is home to hippos, crocodiles, turtles and a wide range of beautiful African birds. You just never get tired of sitting on your deck and looking out over the water. The tents are tastefully furnished, and the beds are super comfy. The outdoor shower for the more adventurous is a true African experience, and the wonderful, natural, organic body lotions and bath gels are simply divine! Then there's the food. Absolutely superb! Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, who cater to your every needs. My 85 year old Mum and her friend who accompanied us were well taken care of, even on the game drives. The staff are just beautiful people, kind and humble. I was very impressed. Game was also very good. I live in Kenya, and have been to many game parks, I rate this one the best from all aspects, especially when you can glimpse the majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro peeping out from almost any angle of the game drives. We saw a giraffe with her 2-3 week old baby, feeding from her belly. And this, 5 minutes from the camp. Adorable!! The evenings carry on the tranquil theme here, sitting around a large, comfortable fire pit, with Alex strumming local songs on his guitar, and gently singing local tunes under the stars. Magic! Peace and tranquility are abundant here. No noise from other safari vehicles, or other tourists leaving for their 6.30 am game drives, which is so often the case in many other safari lodges. And to end it all, I had a massage from Mary, which was just sooooo good. She was caring, and not looking at the clock to hurry you in any way. The pool by the Spa is wonderful too, over-looking the bush, where the elephants have been known to sneak a peek every now and then. I'm aching to return to this wonderful Camp, and I will do very soon. A very memorable experience. Thank you!
10 STARS OUT OF 5!
Whoever thought that at a “tented” camp in the heart of Kenya, you would receive care and service beyond measure. The service culture displayed by the staff at Finch Hattons would be welcome at any of the grand hotels, anywhere in the world. Our every wish and need was catered to, even if it was merely a whisper. Until you experience it, it is almost impossible to describe the moment when you arrive, pour a drink from the well stocked bar in your tent and sit on the deck and watch and listen to the elephants and zebras roaming less than 100 feet away. Finch Hattons came with a well deserved reputation for excellence and on every level measured up. Led by assistant Camp Manager William (while we were there), head waiter Vincent, serving staff Assumpter, Felix, as well as many others, head chef Ken, guide Julius and all of the others behind the scenes who worked very hard to make our stay so wonderful. We would give it ten stars if we could and can’t wait to go back. Need we say more?
Ultimate Safari Experience
Words cannot fully express the truly exceptional experience we had at Finch Hattons. From the moment we arrived at their private airstrip we were treated like royalty. Stunning property in the heart of Tsavo West. Impeccable service. World class food. Accommodations designed to be luxurious and yet connected to the amazing surroundings. Warn caring staff. Oh, and did I mention the fantastic sundowners and breakfast in the bush served on bone china with crystal.
This was our second time at Finch Hatton's and we will certainly return again! Beautiful property, amazing staff, outstanding service and great game drives! Everyone at Finch Hatton's went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home! Thank you so much and see you soon again!
