One-day tour to learn about the cultivation and processing of tea.
Once we arrive to the tea farm in Limuru, the history of the farm and the process of making tea is informally explained over a cup of tea and there is an opportunity to see tea in the field.
Later we take a walk in the indigenous forest with a guide who will identify the plants and explain how they are traditionally used. As we wander in the gardens – which are home to a wide variety of birds and flowers – we can also see Colobus monkeys from very close (if we are lucky enough).
After return to the house we enjoy a pre-lunch drink on the verandah with sweeping views across the tea fields to the Ngong Hills.
Three-course buffet lunch – prepared with locally produced ingredients – is served at about 1.00 p.m.

- Pick-up in your hotel and transfer to the tea farm
- The program in the farm takes around 3 hours (the whole program is longer due to travelling time)
