We went out on a business trip and after a four hour journey from Nairobi arrived at this very beautiful sight. The reception was great and yet with the magnitude and beauty of this place needs to be matched with thier food and beverage side. The meals definitely need to improve. Otherwise a great destination for peace and quiet. A...

One word;Tranquility. Tafaria is surrounded by a peaceful atmosphere. From the moment you step into the castle you really get a sense of ease. My morning view was beautiful as my picture shows. There are many activities you can partake in ; Such as archery , horse riding , visiting a nursery school(more outreach based) and luxurious swimming. Tafaria is...

This is a remarkable fantasy destination in Kenya. Who would have thought a modern medieval castle can be built from scratch! I would say the hotel and its design is an architectural marvel and it is a location worth visiting. The rooms and hotel staff are all top class. I only visited the hotel for a few hours and look...

Went as a family and had an awesome time. The field is very nice and we played football and volleyball. Kids enjoyed the horse riding and playing in the kids section which had slides, swings and play station. The hotel had provided a nanny to assist the parents which was a good thing. I could have given 5 star if...

Unique hotel in the countryside. The architecture is amazing and a lot must have gone into the layout. The horse rides were refreshing and affordable. The room and the general amenities were worthwhile and I liked the fact that they had a hot water bottle to warm our bed. The downside, their food was rather wanting. Not to our taste....
