Who says you have to visit Transylvania and risk vampire bites from Dracula just to get a feel of castles? Go no further. Kajuru Castle has you covered.
Kajuru Castle is an exclusive and luxurious total getaway built in an early medieval style at Kajuru village on a mountaintop just 45 minutes from the trade city of Kaduna, a major commercial hub in the northern part of Nigeria. This gorgeous architectural masterpiece with breathtaking ambience is set upon elevated peaks with staggering views. Kajuru Castle is styled in a European and clearly German way with a baronial hall, complete with suits of armour.
This castle operates on an exclusive basis and can only accommodate 12 individuals or 5 couples at a time. This tourist delight which has been the setting of popular music videos has a live crocodile while gorgeous peacocks are known to move around.
The rooms are spread across the castle’s three floors which feature four dungeon rooms, a central building with an authentic knights’ hall and a master’s bedroom fitted with air conditioners, televisions, sofas, beds and private bathrooms, as well as a dragon tower well guarded by ‘dragons’.
Guests can either bring or plan for their meals or ask the management to make an arrangement with food service providers in town, who will make deliveries at an extra cost. However, guests can choose to use the castle’s sufficiently equipped kitchen. The BBQ spot beside the pool offers a wide range of grilling, baking, roasting and barbequing opportunities.
During ‘frosty’ African nights, the Finnish sauna ensures a warming pleasure. On the Castle rooftop, there is a set of tables and chairs that can sit no less than 10 guests at a time. There is also a garden. The most attractive part of the facility is the open courtyard with the magnificent large stainless swimming pool and pool chairs, plus a barbeque area complete with an outdoor oven.
