(Full Day Excursion)
Kiambethu Tea Farm Visit: Introduction

Kenyan tea is renowned around the world and the Kiambethu Tea Farm is among the country’s oldest, dating back to 1910. This private full-day tour from Nairobi includes a tour of the tea plantation, a delicious 3-course lunch, and an expert-led tea tasting. Just a short drive from the heart of Nairobi, Kiambethu Farm at Limuru provides a tranquil insight into life on a settler farm. Situated at 7,200 ft., Kiambethu was bought and farmed by AB McDonell in 1910. He was the first person to grow, make and sell tea commercially in Kenya – now one of Kenya’s biggest exports. Five generations have lived on the farm and it is currently run by his granddaughter Fiona Vernon. The farm house is set within beautiful gardens surrounded by acres of tea and indigenous forest – home to the Colobus monkey and plenty of other wildlife.
