It was a second time at the castle and the kids loved it.we had gone there with a group of friends for the madaraka day celebrations.The grounds are great for a retreat and spacious enough we made our own meals there and had real fun. The staff are friendly and really helpful and the rates are affordable

We visited Egerton Castle while staying at Kembu. It is currently owned and managed by the Egerton University. The place has a very interesting history and is also nice to visit.
