The Ark Lodge located in Aberdare National Park makes it one of the best hotels to stay, modern comfort and convenience are combined to ensure the guests' satisfaction.

The Ark is an historic Kenyan property whose distinction comes from a reversal of the game drive -- animals come to the people instead of the other way around. It is a unique game lodge that overlooks a floodlit waterhole and salt lick which attracts a host of wildlife. This lodge uniquely resembles the actual Ark, having numerous balconies and lounges. These balconies and lounges provide superb views of animals visiting the salt-lick and waterhole. There is a ground level bunker at the Ark which is a great way for excellent photography.

Ark Lodge is a five star lodge which has 60 guestrooms to offer. There are all the comforts expected by guests with high class service.

The guest rooms are all en-suite. All cabins have private bathrooms with shower, and are comfortably furnished with bedside lamps and carpeted floors to ward off the evening and morning chill. Close to your room are views of the forest or waterhole, revealing game.

The Main Dining Room is set off from the Bar. Long tables are softly lit, and the split-level room has a glass wall with superb views of the dense forest. The menu is a cosmopolitan combination of European and Kenyan dishes, made from fresh Kenyan produce. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are Table d'hôte.

Located on one of the viewing decks is a bar with a variety of wines and liqueurs available and a lounge which remain open all night for tea and coffee.
