The Ark is world-famous and one of Kenya’s ‘must do’ experiences. Built to resemble Noah’s Ark it floats amid the forests of the Aberdare National Park, joined to the world by its own wooden drawbridge. The Yasaba Waterhole, meanwhile, attracts animals from all over the park – notably large herds of elephants. No private vehicles are allowed within the area, guests are brought in by bus from the nearby Aberdare Country Club, which serves as a kind of staging post for the Ark itself.
An expectant hush pervades The Ark. Conversations are whispered, binoculars and cameras head in readiness. There is an early wake-up call – to catch both the wildlife and the first glimpse of the snow-capped peak of Mount Kenya. It’s the public viewing areas, however, that give the Ark its utterly unique appeal. Guests can see the animals from three different levels, inside or out. The ground level photo hide has no glass in the windows – allowing visitors to be literally feet away from a herd of elephants. Elsewhere, viewing can be done in warmth and relaxation.
