De Ark has always been a place of restoration and relaxation on the mountains overlooking Clarens.

Guests are invited to soak in the sheer natural beauty of the farm and enjoy lazy days outside on the patio or taking a hike through beautiful landscapes and of course doing some game spotting at the same time.

Please note we are not self-catering and do not serve lunches or dinners at our lodge. Breakfasts which are included in the rate are served in the restaurant or on the main patio of the lodge.

We do have tea/coffee stations in our rooms, bar fridges and a microwave to heat up food should you wish to bring something light from town.

We offer daily servicing of the rooms and secure parking is available.
