Wellness in the Wilderness

The Newly Renovated Finch Hattons – Tsavo West

The traditional safari is redefining itself and the renovated, scaled down Finch Hattons is at the forefront of that transformation. Sitting in a Land Cruiser for hours on end, looking for game has lost its appeal for many of us that regularly visit the bush. Most people generally don’t mind going on one game drive a day and spending the rest of their time relaxing around the camp or lodge or engaging in other activities such as nature walks, conservation talks and any other activities the property may offer.

Finch Hattons recently underwent a makeover that has transformed the camp. Scaling down the property to 14 Luxury Tented Suites, 2 Luxury Tented Suites and 1 Presidential Tented Suites, a new dining area, reception and pool area, has given the camp the intimate feel it was always striving to capture. An entirely new Spa and Wellness Centre looking out on the magnificent Chyulu Hills provides the perfect sanctuary to take full advantage of the African inspired wellness products the Luxury Camp’s Spa has invested in. Give yourself a break, and take some time to truly explore and enjoy their unique spa.

Relaxing in the afternoon on your veranda, overlooking the pools fed by natural springs; you can spot the hippos cooling off in the pools, alongside waiting crocodiles, a glimpse of the resident leopard (if you’re lucky), elephant and giraffe passing through the camp or the abundance of birdlife, that is ever-present in the Finch environs. The camp has also broadened its range of activities to include bush walks, day trips to Lake Jipe on the Tanzanian border and visits to Amboseli to see the elephants in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

To truly experience and take advantage of the new Finch Hattons, soak it all in, take your time and visit for more than just the night. Spend a few days at the camp and enjoy all it has to offer.

When properties like Finch have major facelifts, the main concern of loyal clients is that the rates will increase and the property will no longer be affordable to the majority of the market, especially the residents. Finch has increased their rates, but do not be scared off by rates advertised around the Internet. Look out for season specials and send us your enquiry:
