On the way to The Ark we stopped for lunch at the Aberdare Country Club.

The Ark is a very cool hotel in the middle of the Aberdare Mountains. It was the first place we saw wild beasties. The Ark was built next to a watering hole and salt lick, so the animals come to you. Buzzers go off in your room all night to alert you that animals have arrived. We saw 4 elephants, a herd of 46 cape buffalo, some hyenas, bushbuck, a black rhino and lots of very noisy birds.
