Kiambethu Tea Farm

A Short Drive From The Heart of Nairobi
In Limuru
Kiambethu Tea Farm

The original home of AB McDonell, the first person to grow, make and sell tea commercially in Kenya, is open to the public, providing a tranquil insight into life, on a settler farm. A brief but beautiful drive from the heart of Nairobi, Kiambethu Farm house nestles itself at 7200 feet, high up in Limuru. Surrounding itself with beautiful gardens, acres of tea and indigenous forest, the property - now run by McDonell’s granddaughter, Fiona - offers educational tours on tea growing, its production process, and demonstrating how tea has maintained itself as one of Kenya’s biggest exports.
Lunch is served on the rolling lawns that border herbaceous beds, under umbrellas overlooking the tea fields, and sweeping views of the Ngong Hills. The farm is also home to the Colobus monkey and plenty of other wildlife.
