Grogan’s Castle is located in Taveta, Kenya. Taveta is a border town in Kenya which is situate next to the neighbouring country, Tanzania. Grogan’s Castle is also located near the Lake Jipe Gate entrance to Tsavo West National Park. This is a 20 minute drive from the castle and noted for its multiple numbers of elephant which come to Lake Jipe to drink and bathe in its waters alongside multiple hippos and crocodiles.

Other nearby sites to explore are Lake Chala, a crater lake, which you can hike down and swim in its refreshing, crystal clear blue waters.

If a history buff, Salaita Hill (slaughter hill) can be explored. This hill with old World War I fortifications is still in existence and was the site of a brutal battle fought in 1914 between British and German forces which claimed over 3,000 lives.



Imagine staying in a historic early 20th century English building perched on a hill overlooking miles and miles of African plains, enjoying a 360-degree panorama which includes Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania’s Pare mountain range, Lake Jipe and Tsavo West.

The hotel has eight large en suite bedrooms, with all the modern comforts but with an old historical feel. Each bedroom is unique and different from the other – no two rooms are the same.

Play a game of pool or darts in the game room, read a book in the upstairs lounge, take a dip in the awesome infinity pool while looking onto the beauty of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Relax and enjoy a sundowner cocktail by the bonfire every evening whilst listening to the sounds of Africa under a blanket of stars.

You will feel pampered by the attentive staff, enjoy the delectable cuisine from an a la carte menu whilst all of this is located inside 1400 acres of a private game conservancy.


You can take a drive through the conservancy and view many plains game like bush buck, dik dik, kongoni, zebra, wildebeest and many other animals.

The hotel is accessible by road and also hosts a 1400 meter private airstrip as well as a helipad.

Grogan’s Castle offers multiple things catering to each and every visitor and the experience will take you back in time. An experience, as our guest, you will always treasure.
