Our Opinion: There are many famous names of big game hunters in East Africa but few are as well-known as Denys Finch Hatton, the enigmatic adventurer who made Tsavo his home during his fabled safaris in the Kenyan bush. Today the hunting has stopped, but the wildlife is still abundant and Finch Hattons Safari Camp is a luxurious camp and the ideal base from which to explore Tsavo West. Set around three hippo pools that are fed by natural springs and surrounded by a rich stand of fine yellow-barked acacias, each of the tents, raised on wooden platforms, is uncompromising in its comfort and immaculate attention to detail.
