In the ancient land of Deighton Downs, at a time of great hardship, adventure & isolation, a young African found himself at the foothills of the Aberdare Ranges overlooking the Laikipia plains. As he grew up here, enveloped in a harsh wilderness, unto him came an immortal dream.
That dream now stands as The Tafaria Castle, Established 2012AD
Beyond venturing to the park and game drives, Archery is one of the activities you must undertake (you are surely visiting a castle!),
Horse back rides is also not to be missed (you may choose to do it on a chariot too).
If you need a free-air workout, take a walk, a run or a hike around the village - we call it goFit.
Plunge into our heated swimming pool as your kids hangout at the kids kingdom and indoor games in the evening.
If you are an art lover, we recommend an art tour around the Castle.
The thing about Tafaria is that you can visit up to 10 times and stay in a different type of room. We have 72 rooms in various residential quarters. The Castle houses the Lord’s room which is ideal for honey-mooners or those looking for extra luxury. It also has the Lord’s Court which has 7 rooms. The Lord‘s Room & Court overlooks the Castle‘s 4 residential quarters, perfect if you would like that extra space or the Vikings‘ Quartersif you fancy being tented.
If you have a family or prefer even more space, the Lost Knights‘ Quarters, the Old House which is a 3-bedroomed cottage or the Damsels‘ Plus which are bigger rooms with connecting doors will provide you with that spacious accomodation. In most days of the year, the price starts from Ksh 7,500 per person sharing a room.
And with that you get all meals of the day. However, we recommend that you call us so that we can make a special package for you, particularly if you are coming with friends or family. Onsite accomodation & meals for crew and drivers is offered at a modest rate.download our rates
We highly encourage you to, as it might turn out to be a fairy tale dream wedding, This is because the Castle is an exclusive location in the countryside which will give your special day a unique backdrop of the splendid Castle. You will be chauffeured around our extensive grounds in our horse drawn chariot and spend the night in the Lord’s room. We recommend an extended photo session at the scenic Aberdare park next door – its for the chosen few.download brochure
