Welcome to The Ark Hotel

The Ark Hotel

The Ark Hotel is a 4 star hotel that resembles and is named after Noah’s Ark. The original design is of Noah's Ark, a wooden ship type structure. Every floor in the hotel has lounges, patios and big viewing windows for wildlife.

The Ark Hotel is 207 Kilometers from the capital city Nairobi. It is located in the Aberdare National Reserve in the County of Nyeri. This is a drive that takes approximately 4 hours. By air, it would take about 1 hour from Nairobi Wilson Airport to Nanyuki Airstrip and approximately 45 minutes’ drive from Nanyuki Airstrip. The Ark is reached after a stop for lunch at the Aberdare Country Club. Set in the heart of the Aberdare National Park with an area of 767 Km2 covers the higher areas of the Aberdare Mountain Ranger of Central Kenya, from altitude of 1829M to 4001M above sea level. 
 
Animals easily observed in the park include; the Black Rhino, leopard, baboon, black and white Colobus monkey and sykes monkey. Rarer sightings include those of lions, the golden cat and the bongo- an elusive forest antelope that lives in the bamboo forest. Animals like the eland and spotted and melanocytic several cats can be found higher up in the moorlands. 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. The Ark overlooks a floodlit waterhole and saltlick, which attracts a host of awesome wildlife. The hotel is a 60 bed hotel facility and spots amenities such as sitting and viewing deck on all four levels, special animal viewing bunker, one Restaurant and one bar, curio gift shop that offers local Kenyan curios, safari wear, essentials and toiletries and a beautiful fireplace / lounge area.
