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 and children!
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.
KIAMBETHU TEA FARM (Half day) to Kiambethu Tea Farm Nairobi;
Kiambethu Tea Farm Nairobi is about an hours 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!
(Tour departs Nairobi at 10.00am).Daily
Tours start off at 11:00 am from the main house. 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
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!
