There are so many safaris that you can pick and choose from, or bolt together to form your complete holiday.

2 Day Aberdare - The Ark


Day 1: Nairobi - Aberdares National Park


Depart Nairobi heading north past pineapple plantations and the Tana River to the fertile Mt Kenya region. After enjoying lunch at the Aberdare Country Club, you will be transferred with your overnight bag to The Ark in the Aberdares National Park. Once you are at The Ark, there are lots of activities to choose from including game drives, walking safaris and guided bird walks - or you can just enjoy the views from one of the three viewing decks. After dinner, you can settle in and enjoy viewing the procession of animals at your waterhole. Tea and coffee is available all night. 


Meals: lunch, dinner

Mid-range: The Ark

Day 2: Aberdares National Park - Nairobi


We advise you raise early to catch some of the best viewing from the rear decks. You have the opportunity to have an early morning walk or game drive before departing back to the Aberdare Country Club. After lunch, return to Nairobi.


Built as a modern-day ‘Noah’s Ark’, The Ark opened in 1969 and is well established in its beautiful forest environment. It is tucked away overlooking the floodlit Yasabara Waterhole, a large mineral-lick, which is a natural magnet for a variety of wildlife. There are unobstructed views from three viewing decks (enclosed and open-air balconies) and a boardwalk to observe birds and animals. Although The Ark’s facilities are quite basic and the rooms are small, with such spectacular wildlife viewing, you won’t be spending much time in your room. Each room has a buzzer which guests can activate to receive night time animal alerts of their choice - so you won’t miss any memorable viewing opportunities. There is also a resident naturist who gives talks and keeps a log showing the animals spotted each day.
