ABOUT PACKAGE

Nairobi is about an hour’s drive away from the hustle and bustle from Nairobi and as such makes a welcome day or overnight tour.

Kiambethu Tea Farm Cottages are situated at 7200 feet in a truly magnificent garden with views of the spectacular Mount Kilimanjaro and the Ngong hills.

Kiambethu is a farmhouse to four generations of the first family to plant and make tea in Kenya Kiambethu Tea Farm is one of Kenya's oldest tea farms. It's a family run business run by Marcus and Fiona Mitchell and it is possible to arrange a 'tea luncheon' with them. You can go, get a fabulous tour of the farm and learn the history of tea making in Kenya as well as of their farm and then get a home cooked meal with tea to follow!

PROGRAM

  • Tours start off at 11:00 am from the main house. Marcus and Fiona welcome you with some homemade biscuits (yum!) and of course tea, before regaling tales of the farm and the tea making process.
  • Kiambethu Tea Farm Cottages Limuru Kenya he gardens around the home are lovely and well worth a stroll, especially to catch glimpses of the resident colobus monkeys! Also included in the tour is a walk through the indigenous forest that is still preserved (most was cleared for the tea farms). The guide is highly entertaining and comical!
  • The tour ends with a relaxed lunch. Again most of the produce is locally sourced and when making reservations inform them of any dietary requirements! The veggie options they had made was fantastic. Lunch is a 3 course affair with complementary beverages - wine, beers, sherry, soft drinks and of course teas and coffee!
