  • A unique experience. Stayed up later than most and watched an elephant have his dinner from a tree less than ten feet outside the window. Then went to the "blockhouse" room and stared at a hyena who had been harassing the elephants earlier.The naturalist lecture was very informative. Dinner was delicious.

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. Resembling and named after Noah’s Ark, The Ark comprises of three decks from which numerous balconies and lounges provide a superb location for wildlife to be seen.
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.
As Monty Brown describes in his book, “Haven Under the Hill”:
“In this intimate recess one can almost, but not quite, pat the animals, hear their sounds and smell the aroma of the night. This is a magical corner, where there is close contact with the essence that tells of an unexplored Africa, and where, very often, the visitor may enjoy in solitary state the beauty of it all.”
So that you don’t miss any animal sightings, the night guard will buzz your room when special animals come to the waterhole. There is even a live webcam so that you can enjoy viewing the animals whether at The Ark, or at home.
