to this special "Mrs. Mitchall's Tea Plantation"
for over 20 years and 99% have enjoyed the experience.
The Kiambethu 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
twenty miles from Nairobi, Kiambethu 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. You will arrive at 11:00 a.m.
and over a cup of tea or coffee the process of making
tea is informally explained, followed by an opportunity
to see tea in the field. You will take a walk in
indigenous forest with the resident Kenyan guide
who will identify the plants and explain how
they are traditionally used. You will see the Colobus
monkeys close up and wander in the gardens,
which are home to a wide variety of birds. When
you return to the house, you will enjoy a pre-lunch
drink on the veranda with sweeping views across
the tea fields to the Ngong Hills. Lunch is prepared
with vegetables from the garden and desserts
are topped with cream from the herd of Channel Island
cows on the farm.

Marcus and Fiona welcome you with some home made
biscuits (yum!) and of course tea, before regaling
tales of the farm and the tea making process
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 them of any dietary requirements!
The veggie options they had made was fantastic.
Lunch is a 3 course affair with complementary beverages
- wine, beers, sherry, soft drinks and of course
teas and coffee!
