Tafaria Castle is a 29-room lodge built on a hill overlooking the Aberdare Range, Laikipia Plains and Mount Kenya, halfway between Nyeri and Nyahururu in Kenya.
Completed in 2012, Tafaria has been conceived to engender two states of mind, that of adventure stimulated by the remote location 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.
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.
Tafaria Castle & Country Lodge has one restaurant, one indoor bar, an outdoor snack bar and one outdoor grill bar.
