Tsavo west side
In the expansive acreage of Tsavo National Park, Finch Hattons in Kenya is a boutique lodge in the bush where you can still find a little old-school safari spirit. Named for the big-game-loving aristo who switched hunting for conservation (dreamily immortalised by Robert Redford in Out of Africa), the hotel has 17 tents (but there are no poles here). The Chyulu Hills and Mount Kilimanjaro form the backdrop, as do natural springs frequented by thirsty (and probably hungry) hippos. Days are spent tracking game (notably the red elephants the park’s famed for) in the vast savannah, but we’d wager evenings will be better still, with sundowners under the stars, candlelit Kenyan cuisine and free-to-raid minibars for self-mixed tipples on your terrace.
