Kajuru castle is a fascinating destination located in Kaduna State, Nigeria. It’s a tourist delight and one of Kaduna’s best kept secrets lodged in the mountains of Kajuru, Kaduna. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, shares 5 reasons you really should include a visit to Kajuru castle on your bucket list.
It’s a castle!
Kajuru castle is a private exclusive villa that includes a guest tower of 4 rooms (`dungeons`), a central building with an authentic knights` hall and a master suite (landlord`s residence`) as well as a dragon tower well-guarded by `dragons`. There’s also a stainless swimming pool to help you relax and unwind on those hot days, a BBQ spot by the pool offering a range of grilling, baking, roasting and barbecuing opportunities, and a Finnish sauna to ensure warmth on those cold days.
It’s 2 in 1
The castle is both a tourist attraction and getaway (a ‘home away from home’). You can book for a guided tour or for a one day, 24-hour or weekend package. The castle operates on an exclusive basis and only the complete facility can be rented out. However, when it isn’t being rented out, it’s a cool tourist attraction with a stunning medieval setting.
It’s Scenic Landscapes
The castle is a beautiful edifice set upon elevated peaks. It has a staggering view that will leave you in awe and admiration. It’s no wonder its scenic beauty has been used to colour and embellish a number of our music videos. Leriq’s Wishlist music video comes to mind, and more recently Mayorkun’s Sade. This destination is indeed a stunning beauty.
It’s a Stunning Architectural Beaut
It’s a magnificent fort built in a German style upon elevated peaks with high towers and bartizans reaching to the sky. Its design is an architectural masterpiece to behold. Lovers of design and architecture will indeed be pleased with the architectural attractions this destination has to offer.
How Can It Not Be On Your Bucket List
Kajuru Castle is a tourist destination in Nigeria that has been described as “fantasy destination”, a “stunning beauty”, “fascinating and beautiful” etc (the list of adjectives are longer than we have space to mention). The destination has been the setting of popular music videos and its view is breathtaking. If this isn’t one of the ‘must visit’ places on your bucket list, what are you waiting for to make it one?
