The Ark Lodge is a resort located in Aberdare National Park with a ship-like shape. The Ark is divided into three decks, with many balconies and lounges providing excellent views of wildlife.
A floodlit waterhole and salt lick that are visible from The Ark are home to a variety of amazing wildlife. The waterhole is the main attraction and center of attention at the lodge. From the wildlife viewing decks, guests can take their time and observe the animals from a secure vantage point.
While the animals quench their thirst at the water hole, you can quench yours at the well-stocked bar, which offers a variety of beers and liqueurs. There is also a fine wine collection available from the Ark cellar.
There is a fine dining restaurant serving a variety of international and local cuisines, but lunch is served at the Aberdare Country Club. The same can be arranged at The Ark in advance.
The Ark Lodge provides its guests with comfortable, luxurious rooms and suites. Each room has an African theme and is equipped with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay.
A few of these features include cozy beds, private bathrooms, televisions with DVD players, and air conditioning. The rooms feature large windows and balconies with stunning views of the park.
The gift shop here is well-stocked with souvenirs, memorabilia with The Ark logo, toiletries, and books that tell the story of The Ark Lodge. There is a well-stocked library with books on flora and fauna, the history of animals in the Aberdare National Park, and the history of the region.
The lodge is also an excellent starting point for exploring the nearby national park and its numerous attractions. This could be accomplished through scenic hikes, wildlife drives, or a trip to the moorlands. Visitors can also go trout fishing in the moorland’s small rivers.
