Kiambethu Tea Farm Limuru Cottages are located just 40 Minutes from the heart of Nairobi in Limuru and provide a tranquil insight into the life of a settler farm. A visit or a stay at Kiambethu Tea Farm makes a memorable time and it includes delicious meals, a visit to the indigenous forest, insights into the making and growing of tea provided by the hosts
Kiambethu Tea Farm Limuru Cottages are about an hour’s drive away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi and as such makes a welcome day or overnight tour. Kiambethu Tea Farm Homestay is situated at 7200 feet in a truly magnificent garden with views of the spectacular Mount Kilimanjaro and the Ngong hills.
Kiambethu is a farmhouse for four generations of the first family to plant and make tea in Kenya. Kiambethu Tea Farm Fiona welcomes you with some homemade biscuits (yum!) and of course tea, before regaling tales of the farm and the tea-making process. This particular farm is one of the founding ones in Kenya and kicked off the million-dollar industry today.
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! Your stay here includes a relaxed lunch. Again most of the produce is locally sourced and when making reservations through African Spice Safaris inform them of any dietary requirements! Lunch is a 3-course affair with complementary beverages – wine, beers, sherry, soft drinks, and of course teas and coffee!
Kiambethu’s lunch is a great meal with homemade butter, rolls, and soup. Then salad, maize (white corn) and cheese, potatoes, green beans, carrots, and Swiss steak, followed by fruit and homemade ice cream. The veggie options served are fantastic. At Kiambethu Tea Farm, guests are given an insight into the tea-making process followed by an opportunity to see tea in the field.
Accompanied by the resident Kenyan guide, guests can also take a short walk into the small indigenous forest and learn about the plants and how they were used traditionally, watch the Colobus monkeys and birds that are resident in the gardens, or just enjoy the sweeping views across the tea fields to the Ngong Hills.
When in the area, be sure to also check out Tigoni waterfalls! A definite activity worth doing when in Nairobi! In case you would like a Homestay, you could stay in the house and enjoy meals together with Fiona – request reservations through Africa Spice Safaris.
