Lodge, Kenya lodge safari
Aberdares National Park Excursions
In the afternoon transfer into the Aberdare National Park
to Treetops or the Ark for an evening and Night of game
watching from your veranda overlooking a flood-lit water
hole and salt lick high up on the densely wooded slopes
of the mountain. While away the after-dinner hours identifying
creatures of the wild as they gingerly step out of the
forest. Wildlife found here includes Elephants, Buffalos,
Leopards, Lions, Cheater, and Giraffe among others.
The lodges are also the main attraction
of the Aberdares. Both Treetops and The Ark are built
above the ground beside floodlit waterholes with salt
licks. Visitors must book in advance and cannot make their
own way to the lodges in private vehicles. Instead check-in
is at the Aberdare Country club for The Ark and the Outspan
Hotel for Treetops and they bus you to the lodge. Treetops
is one of Kenya's most famous hotels as this is where
British Princess Elizabeth was informed that she was now
Queen in 1952 when her father died. The Ark, however,
offers better game viewing, especially at night.
Nocturnal game viewing is taken so seriously
that there is a buzzer in each room which sounds if an
unusual animal turns up at the waterhole. Elephant, buffalo,
rhino, leopard and bushbuck are regular visitors.

Famously known for being home to Queen Elizabeth the II
on the night of her crowning, Treetops Hotel offers guests
a royal treat in the heart of the Aberdare National Park.
No trip to Kenya is regarded as complete without a visit
or stay at the Treetops Hotel. Treetops heads the list
for many a visitor. Located in the heart of the dense
lichen hung forest, the 50 room Treetops overlooks two
waterholes and the snowy peaks of Mount Kenya.
You can take pleasure in the safety and
comfort of observation lounges, which allow you to photograph
the territorial charge of rhino, protective matriarch
elephant and bounding bushbuck. A family of lions, have
on more than one occasion, made a meal of some poor unfortunate
warthog to the fascinated horror of Treetops guests. Rooms
are either single or twin with shared bathroom facilities,
however, private on suite bathrooms are available on request.
A professional hunter can also wake you up on request
when one of the "Big Five" visits the tree house
at night. Children under 7 years are not permitted
