Great hotels with nice people surrounds you, nice driver provides good service to us. All animals are amazing and so close to the window. We saw the big 5, special 5,and much more more. We learned so much about the animals and their behaviors, because our driver Mike was so knowledgable. We saw lions were hunting a zebra. We saw a big group of elephants and with sunrise when doing ballon safari.

Sino Africa is really outstanding, and we had lifetime experience.

We didn't see ANY OTHER car or person in nation park. It was so quiet and natural with fantastic falls. Leopard just walked over the road in front of our car. Somehow like a paradise.

I gave 5 stars to all the parks. We saw the wildlife and the scenery was great.
That’s what we came for

Again, beautiful opportunities to see animals and birds in the wild. I stayed up all night looking at the elephants and other animals at The Ark hotel. Lots of photographic moments.

Unique wildlife viewing experience from THE ARK
Overall rating
5/5

We stayed overnight at THE ARK which is situated in Aberdare NP (about 6000ft above sea level). The lodge is superb with a waterhole in front, flood lit at night. There was a lot of greenery around. We were locked inside the lodge as it was dangerous to go out since wild animals roam freely. Cape buffalos, antelopes, warthogs, jungle pig and ducks were sighted from the afternoon when we arrived. Herds of elephants (lots) started arriving during evening for water and salt (which was strewn in the open area). They stayed till late night. Hyenas came during night and a pack of them even attacked a cape buffalo, close to our room. The lodge staff, through a buzzer, let us know which animal has arrived at night . The viewing lounge is excellent with full glass panes and good seating arrangements, so is the food - and the talk about Aberdare NP. Additionally there were bird feeding and wild cat feeding sessions- both enjoyable. Sunrise with Mt Kenya on the side, is a sight to behold. All up, a unique experience in viewing wildlife. Travellled through Kenya Budget Safaris- tour guide excellent. Staff of THE ARK also very good and helpful.
