While the wildlife viewing is always the feature of any African safari expedition, accommodations in National Parks & reserves can really add to your experience. We’ve complied a list of our favourite Africa lodgings that you can experience when you join a Gate 1 Discovery Tour.

Best accommodation for wildlife viewing – The Ark, Aberdare National Park

This first class hotel located in Aberdare National Park in Kenya is a definite highlight on the 10 Day Kenya Safari Exploration . Named after Noah’s Ark, this quirky hotel has four viewing areas for observing the local wildlife. Sip coffee from one of the many balconies and watch elephants frolick in the waterhole. For the serious photographer there is also a ground level bunker where close ups of the animal can be taken in complete safety.
