Day 1: Nairobi to Aberdare National Park, Kenya
After your breakfast, our guide will meet you at your hotel and transfer to Aberdare national park not later than 8:00am. The journey is quite impressive crossing through the Kenyan Highlands, past pineapple and coffee plantations, to your “base hotel” in time for lunch at Aberdare Country Club.
After your lunch, you will transfer into Aberdare National Park and on to The Ark Lodge from where you will do bird watching until later in the night when you will view game from the lodge decks with help of flood lights. The Ark Lodge, set in the heart of the Aberdare National Park, is a unique tree lodge with a veranda overlooking a floodlit waterhole and saltlick allowing undisturbed views of wildlife visiting the waterhole. Elephants, rhinos, leopards, bushbucks and occasionally an elusive bongo and giant forest hog are seen there.
The Ark lodge has 60 guest rooms . 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 or Treetops Lodge.
Day 2: Aberdare to Nairobi, Kenya
After breakfast, return to the base hotel. Reconnect with your driver for a drive back to Nairobi to arrive just before lunch where the tour ends.
