    Kiambethu Farm
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    Begin your tour with pickup from your central Nairobi hotel in time for a 9.45am departure. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, set out on the around 45-minute drive to Limuru, situated at 7,200 feet (2,195 meters) above sea level. On arrival at the Kiambethu Tea Farm, follow your guide on a walking tour of the plantation. Hear the history of the farm, which was set up by AB McDonell in 1910 and is still run by the same family, then learn more about the growing, picking, and processing of the tea leaves. As you explore the farm, keep a look out for exotic birds and Colobus monkeys. Back at the farmhouse, take a seat on the verandah, looking out over the tea fields and the distant Ngong Hills, and sample the freshly brewed tea for yourself. Finally, tuck into a delicious 3-course buffet lunch, all made with produce fresh from the farm.  On return to Nairobi, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 4pm.
