Tafaria Castle and Country Lodge
About Tafaria Castle and Country Lodge
Once upon a dream; in the ancient land of Deighton Downs, at a time of great hardship, adventure, and loneliness, a young African found himself at the foothills of the Aberdare Ranges overlooking the Laikipia Plains. As he grew up there, enveloped in a harsh wilderness, unto him came an immortal dream. That dream now stands as Tafaria Castle and Country Lodge
Tafaria is a 29 room lodge built on a hill overlooking the Aberdare Range, Laikipia Plains and Mount Kenya, halfway between Nyeri and Nyahururu, Kenya. Completed in 2012 AD, this unique and exciting lodge has been conceived to excite two states of mind; that of adventure stimulated by the remote location within reach of rich Kenyan wildlife and medieval architectural style that runs from the castle to the similarly themed cottages, and relaxation facilitated by the high altitude, secluded spot and gentle, manicured grounds ideal for weddings and photo sessions.
The castle houses the Lord’s Room which is ideal for honeymooners or those looking for extra luxury. It overlooks the castle’s four residential quarters; the Damsels’ Quarters are optimally sized, the Knights’ Quarters are perfect if you would like that extra space or the Vikings’ Quarters if you fancy being tented. If you have a family or prefer even more space, the Lost Knights’ Quarters or the Old House which is a three-bedroom cottage will provide you with that spacious accommodation.
The Bailey restaurant is open throughout the day till 11pm to both the lodge residents and non-residents. Guests can either dine in the inner or the outer section of the Bailey. The Moat Bar is where you enjoy your refreshments as you lookout to the Aberdare Ranges. Enjoy your favourite drink ranging from cocktails to age-old wine as you listen to your favourite music.
The Tafaria Castle is within 30 minutes reach of rich African wildlife in the Aberdare ranges and the Laikipia Plains. We can organize game drives into the Aberdares or the conservancies within the Laikipia Plains.
