The 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, the farm 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. Tea Farm Cottages are situated at 7200 feet in a truly magnificent garden with views of the spectacular Mount Kilimanjaro and the Ngong hills. The farm is a farmhouse to four generations of the first family to plant and make tea in Kenya.
(Pick up at 8:30-9:30 Depending on location: You will be picked up from the airport, residence or hotel (to be advised) by our professional driver guide and depart driving to Limuru. Tours start off at 11:00 am from the main house. Fiona welcome you with some homemade 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 and comical! The tour ends with a relaxed lunch. Again most of the produce is locally sourced and when making reservations inform us of any dietary requirements! The veggie options made are fantastic. Lunch is a 3 course affair with complementary beverages - wine, beers, sherry, and soft drinks and of course teas and coffee!
