Situated within the wildlife-rich Aberdare National Park, the Ark Lodge is an ideal lodge from which to explore this beautiful reserve just north of Nairobi. Featuring four viewing areas above the waterhole and saltlik, there is no shortage of options from which to watch the ever-present animal activity here. There is also a ground-level hide - perfect for the discerning wildlife photographer.
Accommodation at the Ark is in the form of "cabins" situated across 3 decks, each outfitted with en-suite facilities and comfortable amenities. The lodge is wheelchair accessible.
Activities include game walks on the lodge's 1300 acres, golf, tennis, horseback riding, relaxing at the health club or swimming pool, or simply enjoying the gorgeous gardens.
This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
