Our Story

Tafaria Castle is located in rural Kenya on a hill, next to the scenic Aberdare ranges overlooking the Laikipia plains and Mt Kenya.

Eunice and I founded the Castle in 2012AD to transform this village where I grew up. My family settled here in 1979 making us the earliest settlers after the Deighton Downs ranch was subdivided. I grew up in these plains which were then very isolated, remote, lonely and simply godforsaken as hardship ranged from wildlife conflicts, droughts, lack of water, strenuous daily chores and absence of social infrastructure typical of most rural Kenya.

What began as a small Castle in the countryside in 2012, has grown into a Lodge, a Conference Center, a Museum and Center for the Arts

Welcome to our LOVE.
