Lovely Day Out away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

A great day out, taking in the scenery and being treated to a lovely meal! The hosts are all super friendly and it was lovely to spend a day away from the city in the gardens of the tea farm! Did not think we would enjoy it as much as we did, the only suggestion we would make is to have a short tour of a tea factory included which would have made it 5 stars!

A great and relaxing way to spend...

A great and relaxing way to spend the first part of the day. The tour starts with a relaxing walk around the garden, then a walk around the tea groves and then you move to the old house for a nice talk about tea and the processes around it - of course while sipping tea/coffee. Later you go through the forest and hear about the traditional use of plants and their significance. The whole event then is topped up with a great feast. A great and relaxing trip away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi.

Hello, Thank you for taking time to share with us your experience at Kiambethu Tea Farm. We are happy to read that you had an amazing time. This a place of tranquility, the best way to escape the busy city. One takes a tour in the tea fields and learn history of tea farming. If you are lucky, you get sightings of the colubus monkeys and different bird species. To cap it all, is lunch at the tea farm as you enjoy views of these panoramic landscape. We would like to invite you to explore other destinations!
