The Ark has cabins with views of the Aberdare Mountain Ranges making it ideal for a safari and romantic holiday.
The Ark comprises of three decks from which numerous balconies and lounges provide a superb location for wildlife to be seen. So that you don’t miss any animal sightings, the night guard will buzz your room when special animals come to the waterhole. The Ark has four viewing areas for observing the ever-present animal activity.
There is also a ground level bunker – the perfect hideout for the discerning photographer. This is a circular pillbox-like structure, and it is from this vantage point that pictures of animals on the salt lick only yards away may be taken through the view holes in complete safety.
The units feature large windows, balcony and a watch tower offering an attractive view of the wild life and the Aberdare park. Each cottage is well lit and fit with a cozy bed, a seating lounge, coffee table, bottled water and en suite bathroom.
The restaurant offers excellent cuisine for dinner and breakfast, either as a buffet or set menu, depending on the number of guests. Lunch is served at the Aberdare Country Club. However, on advance request the same can be organized at The Ark. As the animals quench their thirst at the water hole, we have our own well stocked bar with a variety of wines and liqueurs available for you to quench yours with.
Game drives to the Solio Sanctuary, a private game reserve that extends between the spurs of Aberdare Mountains and Mt. Kenya are possible too. This 25,000 hectare reserve became famous because of its unique success in the rearing of the White and Black Rhino. Lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffaloes and zebras can also be spotted in large numbers.
The gift shop is located on deck D. It is well stocked with souvenirs, memorabilia with The Ark logo, as well as toiletries and books with the story of The Ark well told.
The Ark overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt lick which attracts a host of awesome wildlife. The Ark is designed after the historical Noah's ark. The hotel has four viewing decks with balconies and lounges to provide superb game viewing from the comfort of the lodge. The Ark is within the Abedares National Park.
