I was visiting Aberdare National park & preferred to stay here than the more historically romantic Treetop lodge where " A young girl princess climbed up the steps of this lodge & came down next morning as the Queen of UK & the whole Commonwealth!"In Feb.52 Queen Elizabeth had become queen over night with the death of her father & had to be rushed to be sworn in as the Queen.
I arrive at the Aberdare Country club & then after depositing one`s luggage & only taking some things for the over night stay are driven to the Ark.The rooms are at 3 levels & the preferred one is the level 1 from where one can see animals at eye level.I was on ist floor & had given instructions to be woken up when an animal is sighted at the water hole which is just opposite.The rooms are small, cramped & very cold but you are given a hot water bottle & warm blanket.
The food served has a wide variety & good, served in a buffet style.The staff is pleasant & helpful.Well animals-saw some elephants, a black Rhino & Hyena.Worth for the night stop over & the forest atmospherics!
