Fairmont The Ark Nairobi
This hotel is no longer in operation and is in the process of being removed from our site. Please check the list to the right of this page for alternate properties. Opened in November 1969, The Ark overlooks the Yasabara waterhole, perhaps the largest salt-lick in the Aberdare Mountains and the haunt of a variety of forest game unequalled in Africa. This tree-lodge is uniquely shaped to resemble the actual Ark, designed with decks from which numerous balconies and lounges provide superb vantage points for viewing the animals visiting the salt-lick and waterhole. A ground-level bunker provides excellent photographic opportunities, and the Yasabara waterhole is floodlit by night to enable all-night viewing of game. A Resident Hunter is always on hand to elucidate on the wildlife and landscape. The 60 guest rooms are all en-suite. 8 of these are triple-bedded State Cabins, there are 38 twin-bedded State Cabins, 8 double-bedded State Cabins, 5 single-bedded State Cabins and 1 single-bedded courier cabin which is not en-suite.
