The camp is named after Denys Finch Hatton, a big game hunter and guide who inspired an era of luxury on safari in Kenya. The classic film Out of Africa depicts part of his life and his affair with Karen Blixen who was the author of the book on which the film is based. Denys was renowned for his charming manner and stylish safaris into the heart of Africa.
Finch Hattons Camp is located in a lush and scenic setting which is a wonderful thing after safari activities on the savannah. The camp overlooks some natural springs and is surrounded by a forest. The cathedral thatch ceilings of the main building and the genteel atmosphere within make Finch Hattons a cool and peaceful haven in which to relax.
In between game viewing excursions you can spend time at the swimming pool with its shady terrace. The bar is open all day and the main lounge and restaurant offer gracious spaces for relaxing and dining. On the mezzanine level you can admire the lovely thatch ceiling while reading in the cosy library which also has a range of classical and slightly more modern music.
