Kiambethu Tea Farm Excursion


The Kiambethu Tea Farm goes all the way back to 1910 when it was farmed by AB Mcdonell thus making it one of the first tea farms in Kenya. Evelyn's daughter (Mcdonell's oldest daughter) and son in law Fiona and Marcus Vernon now run the farm. The farm is just a short drive from Nairobi and is located in Limuru. The farm house is within the magnificent gardens surrounded by acres of Tea and local indigenous forests.

The tour departs at 10 am from Nairobi while the tour of the farm starts at 11 am from the main farm house. The tentative itinerary is as follows:

Arrival at 11 am and over a cup of tea or coffee the history of the farm and process of making tea is informally explained. This is followed by an opportunity to see tea in the field.

A walk in the indigenous forest with their resident Kenyan guide will follow. He will identify the plants and explain how they are traditionally used. Look out for the Colobus monkeys and enjoy the wide variety of birds and flowers.

Return to the house to enjoy a pre-lunch drink on the veranda with sweeping views across the tea fields to the Ngong Hills. Enjoy your three course buffet lunch from their set menu prepared with vegetables from the garden and desserts topped with cream from their herd cows.
