“Denys Finch Hatton was a legendary British aristocrat who travelled to Kenya in 1911 and fell under the spell of the African wild. His fascination with the wildlife turned him into a renowned photographer, dedicated conservationist and host, introducing both business tycoons and British Royalty to his world of Luxury Safari,” reads the website.

This past February, the camp reopened following a complete overhaul, adding new amenities and furnishings. Trying to bring back the golden days of safari travel, the accommodations feature white linens, ornately-carved chests, free-standing copper tubs, hardwood writing tables and indoor plus outdoor showers overlooking the region.
