Secreted away in the ancient land of 1910 Deighton Downs and overlooking rolling plains and ethereal mountaintops, Kenya's rooftop, Mt Kenya, sits a castle worthy of medieval Europe but modern enough for luxurious Africa. It's about 65km from Nyeri, towards Nyahururu and 39km from Nyahururu towards Nyeri. The nearest airstrip is Mwriga
Tafaria Castle, built in 2012, is a luxury safari lodge with all the trimmings: themed cottages, spectacular views, and fine amenities. The castle's enchanting location overlooks Mount Kenya, the Laikipia Plains, and Aberdares Ranges – a paradise for safari game viewing. African elephants, buffalo, zebras and giraffes roam these plains, and the nearby Olpajeta Conservancy is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa.
The Castle, within which you find the lord's room overlooks the castle's four quarters: You can either stay in the damsel quarters which are optimally sized, the knight's quarters if you would like that extra space or the Viking's quarters if you fancy being tented.
