The Ark

Aberdare National Park
August 20-21, 2018

< < previous | next > >

The Ark is like something out of a Wes Anderson movie: a 1970s era, 60-Room hotel shaped like Noah's Ark, perched on a forest slope overlooking a water hole. Everyone gathers in the fireside lounge to hear the rangers describe the lives of forest animals, and then after a cafeteria-style meal, you head out to the balconies to spy on the animals. Mornings, a concierge walks the halls playing a small xylophone at 6:45am to wake everyone so they can watch the sunrise. It kinda gave me the creeps, but I'd go back in a minute.
