Things To Do

Go beyond safari

A stay at Finch Hattons will be filled with adventure, culture and relaxation from the moment you arrive, whether you're out on a thrilling game drive with our expert guides spotting incredible wildlife, hiking through the mysterious Chyulu Hills cloud forests, discovering Tsavo's unique geological wonders or simply indulging in a rejuvenating treatment at our award-winning Chyulu Spa. 

Game drives

Dawn and dusk are the best times for game drives. Join our expert guides on twice-daily game drives and witness majestic elephants, graceful giraffes, and sturdy buffalo in their natural habitats. 

Hikes and walks

Spanning an impressive 2.28 million hectares, you could spend days exploring Tsavo National Park, and barely scratch the surface. Hike through the otherwordly Chyulu Cloud Forest, marvel at Shetani Lava Flow or for those craving adventure, summit the Ol Doinyo Ololarami volcano and take in the spectacular views of this extraordinary landscape, set against the majestic backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Embrace the Maasai culture

To better understand the way of life in the Tsavo, visit the nearby village of Illtilal and gain an insights in the daily life of the Maasai, from tending to their animals to building 'Manyattas', their traditional homes. Master the art of spear-throwing or engage in survival training sessions to learn all about essential wilderness skills - a great way to embrace the adventurous spirit of the Maasai and immerse yourself in their storied traditions. 


There is so much more to Tsavo National Park than 'Big Five'. Discover the area's unique geological wonders, such as Jurassic age granite monoliths, discover Lake Jipe, a bird lover's paradise home to the pygmy goose, black egret, black coucal and many other species or visit the Rhino Sanctuary, home to around 80 endangered Black Rhinos. 


With no light pollution, on a clear night, the Tsavo sky is simply spectacular. Head to our stargazing deck, spotting everything from the Milky Way to constellations and stars as far as the eye can see.

Wellness and spa

A haven for relaxation, our Chuylu Spa offers a series of rejuvenating treatments - perfect for unwinding in between game drives. Join one of our yoga instructors at our open deck studio, or work up a sweat in the gym.
