Kiambethu Tea Farm
Day Tour From Nairobi:Clients have been going
to this special "Mrs. Mitchall's Tea Plantation"
for over 20 years and 99% have enjoyed the experience.
The Kiambethu tea farm is about an hours drive away
from the hustle and bustle from Nairobi and as such
makes a welcome day trip from the capital for adults
Situated twenty miles from Nairobi, Kiambethu has
been the family home of one of the earliest tea
growers in Kenya. The farm dates back to 1910 and
the present house, set amidst colorful gardens,
has been home to four generations. You will arrive
at 11:00 a.m. and over a cup of tea or coffee the
process of making tea is informally explained, followed
by an opportunity to see tea in the field. You will
take a walk in indigenous forest with the resident
Kenyan guide who will identify the plants
and explain how they are traditionally used. You
will see the Colobus monkeys close up and
wander in the gardens, which are home to a wide
variety of birds. When you return to the house,
you will enjoy a pre-lunch drink on the veranda
with sweeping views across the tea fields to the
Ngong Hills. Lunch is prepared with vegetables
from the garden and desserts are topped with cream
from the herd of Channel Island cows on the farm.

hours drive away from the hustle and bustle from

tour. Kiambethu Tea Farm Cottages are situated at
7200 feet in a truly magnificent garden with views

hills. Kiambethu is a farmhouse to four generations

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!
(Tour departs Nairobi at 10.00am).Daily

Marcus and Fiona welcome you with some home made
biscuits (yum!) and of course tea, before regaling
tales of the farm and the tea making process
The 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!
