kiambethu

Our tours takes us to Kiambethu Farms, a lush and lovely tea estate in the Limuru Highlands where we enjoy lunch hosted by Fiona Vernon, granddaughter of the original settler. Kiambethu still produces tea leaves of the same variety that her grandfather grew when he was the first to plant tea in Kenya almost one hundred years ago.

Established in 1910 by the first family to farm tea in Kenya, it has been home to four generations, including the original owner’s granddaughter Fiona Vernon and her husband Marcus, who now operate a lovely restaurant out of their home.
