Kiambethu Tea Farm Tour in Limuru From Nairobi

Tour Overview

Kiambethu tea farm is located at an altitude of 7000 feet above sea level and has lush acres of tea plantations that seem to vanish in the horizon. Two English families, Mitchell & McDonnell in the early 1900’s, built the Estate. These families are said to be the first to have ventured into the tea business. You will also have a lecture on the area and about the production of tea. In the afternoon, a walk through the tea plantations and forests will display the conditions needed for the growth of tea.

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 here where you get to enjoy a ‘tea luncheon’ with them.

Kiambethu Tea Farm, the family home of one of the earliest tea growers in Kenya, is situated 30 Km away from Nairobi. The farm dates back to 1910 and the present house set amidst colorful gardens, has been home to four generations.
At Kiambethu the guests are given an insight into the tea making process followed by an opportunity to see tea in the field.vv
