The Ark Lodge
Set in the heart of the Salient area of the forested Aberdare National Park, The Ark overlooks a glade with a floodlit waterhole and salt lick which attracts a host of wildlife. It comprises three 'decks' from which numerous balconies and lounges provide superb vantage points for game viewing. Its ground level bunker provides excellent close up photographic opportunities. Each of the 60 ensuite cabins is fitted with a buzzer to announce the arrival during the night of one of the 'big five' at the waterhole. We recommend a late afternoon walk along the catwalk at the entrance to the lodge where you may see various species of small game and bird life. Warm clothing is recommended as it can be cold and only small overnight bags are permitted (luggage can be left at the Aberdare Country Club).
