Aberdare National Park
About The Ark
Set in the heart of the Aberdare National Park, iconic and yes, quirky; The Ark overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt lick, which attracts a host of awesome wildlife. Modelled after Noah's Ark, The Ark has four viewing decks with balconies and lounges to provide superb game viewing from the comfort of the lodge. The animals come to you.
The Ark has four viewing areas from which to observe the ever-present animal activity at the waterhole and saltlick. There is also a ground level hide, the perfect spot for the discerning photographer. From this vantage point, photos of animals can be taken at eye-level. So as not to miss any animal sightings, the resident guide will buzz your room when special animals come to the waterhole. Simply throw on your provided robe and slippers, grab your camera and view nightlife at the waterhole.
The restaurant offers excellent cuisine for dinner and breakfast, either as a buffet or set menu, depending on the number of guests. The food is very fresh with organic vegetables and spices. The chef is always on hand to cater for special dietary requirements. A collection of fine wines is available from The Ark cellar. As the animals quench their thirst at the waterhole, we have our own well-stocked bar with a variety of wines and liqueurs available for you to quench yours with.
