Breakfast and thereafter depart for the Aberdares via the Nyahururu Falls, formerly Thomson Falls, to arrive at the Aberdare Country Club for lunch.
Afternoon transfer with the lodge based vehicle into Aberdare National Park and on to The Ark Lodge for bird watching and overnight floodlit game viewing from the lodge viewing decks.
Ark Lodge, set in the heart of the Aberdare National Park, is a unique tree lodge with a veranda that overlooks a floodlit waterhole and saltlick allowing undisturbed views of wildlife visiting the waterhole.
Elephant, rhino, leopard, bushbuck and occasionally an elusive bongo and giant forest hog have been sighted. The 60 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. Resembling and named after Noah’s Ark, The Ark Tree Lodge is designed with ‘decks’ from which numerous balconies and lounges provide superb vantage points for game viewing.
A ground level bunker provides excellent photographic opportunities and takes you closer than you would believe possible to the wildlife.
Dinner and overnight at The Ark Lodge.
