Owner description: Come and enjoy a lunch time tour of the farm with Fiona... Arrive at 11am and over a cup of tea or coffee the history of the farm and process of making tea is informally explained, followed by an opportunity to see tea in the field. Then take a walk in the indigenous forest with our resident Kenyan guide who will identify the plants and explain how they are traditionally used. Look out for the Colobus monkeys close up and wander in the gardens which are home to a wide variety of birds and flowers. Return to the house to enjoy a pre-lunch drink on the verandah with sweeping views across the tea fields to the Ngong Hills. Enjoy your three course buffet lunch from our set menu prepared with vegetables from the garden and desserts are topped with cream from our herd of Channel Island cows.

Wonderful day out in the tea farms of tigoni. Excellent vegetarian lunch and delicious homemade eggless icecream. The walk in the forest is lovely.

This is a perfect getaway outside of Nairobi. About 45-60 minutes from the Westlands area it is situated in the highlands were tea farming is common. It's a tea farm too. The proprietor invites you into their home, shares about the tea farming process, sends you on a farm tour and then welcomes you back with a fresh lunch made from ingredients locally farmed. The vegetable soup was amazing, as was the ice cream. We will likely take all of our visitors here for a visit.

The Kiambethu tea farm experience was lovely. Fiona is a great hostess. The visit was very informative. the lunch was a feast. For me the great experience, other than the beautiful landscape and the personal history associated with it was also Fiona's garden and her staff. We had gone with a 7 year old and 2 year old and they were all very kind, patient and friendly.

Do remember to visit the Water falls on the way.

A visit to Kiambethu (Tea) Farm is really worthwhile. Fiona and her staff make the guests more than welcome. I her own , modest way, she shares her knowledge of the family farm and tea cultivation. We had a perfect lunch (buffet) of three courses, mainly prepared with hom grown ingredients. Julius took us on a tour of the grounds.
Fiona's beautiful garden (with a view on the tea plantation) is a paradise for birds. Do not forget to bring your camera.

Our group absolutely loved our time at Kiambethu Farm, and many listed it as a highlight of their time in Kenya! After arriving and having a chance to take a look around at the beautiful garden/scenery, you are welcomed inside and enjoy tea time while the owner, Fiona, does a brief "tea talk." (Note- often times I find these kinds of "informational talks" to be on the boring side, but I thought that this was quite interesting!)
After tea, you have the chance to talk a walk through the farm and the forest. The tour guide points out many interesting facts about the plants and animals, so try to stay near the front of the tour if at all possible.
Following the brief walk, we were served a DELICIOUS 3-course lunch on the lawn. The veggies and fruits are grown in the gardens, the ice cream was made from the milk of the cows on the farm, the rolls were made fresh that morning, etc.
Fiona is such a wonderfully welcoming and delightful host. You will enjoy every moment that you spend at Kiambethu Farm!
