Tafaria Castle & Country Lodge to Host TafariART Camp 2013

Tafaria Castle & Country Lodge

“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…
The Tafaria Castle & Country Lodge
EST 2012 AD”

The above are the first words on the Tafaria Castle & Country Lodge. Inspiring and vivid I’d say, and rightly so because many aspects of the castle whisk you off to a land of kings and queens and fabulous British accents. For instance, some of the names of the rooms in the castle are ‘The Lord’s Room’, ‘Knights’ Quarters’, ‘The Damsel’s Quarters’ and ‘The Vikings’ House.’ Log on to the website tafaria.com for more information.
