Aberdares Accommodation?

I stayed at the Ark and Serena Mountain Lodge years ago. Which one is in better shape these days?

The Serena Mountain Lodge is in Mt Kenya not the Aberdares. Perhaps you were thinking of Treetops?

We tried visiting the Ark recently, but it was a no go. I was told they needed to get 'permission' from the Aberdare Country Club even to allow me to use their bathroom When are you going? My understanding is that the refurbishment of the Ark will take place sometime early next year before the re-branding to Fairmont.

Another option rather than overnighting at a tree hotel would be to stay outside of the NP and go on game drives in the park. We recently drove through the entire park (in from the Ark gate and out through Mutubio gate on the other side) and found it fascinating. We also did a separate game drive in the Salient. Not many people actually explore the park itself. We saw one other vehicle there over the course of two days.
