How do I get there?
The easiest way to get here is by car. If you don’t have a car come with a driver who will wait for you whilst on the tour. Please note if you get an Uber here it is unlikely you will be able to get an Uber back!
If you are travelling on Matatu from Nairobi get the 116 and get off at the bottom of Girls School Road (Kenchic Stop) and catch a Boda Boda up the hill to the farm.
You can find us on Google Maps under Kiambethu Tea Farm
Is the walk strenuous?
No, the walk is to the indigenous forest just outside our farm gate, just watch out for roots and the occasional safari ant.
Can I come at another time?
We only offer the tour at 11am, we don’t do afternoon or evening tours.
Are you a restaurant?
No, we are not a restaurant - we serve a hot buffet lunch that starts with homemade vegetable soup and bread rolls then a mix of meat and vegetable dishes followed by cheese & biscuits, homemade ice-cream and fruit salad.
Can you cater to dietary requirements?
Please let us know on the booking form if you are vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian or gluten free.
Do I really have to pre book?
Yes! Our online booking form closes at 4pm the night before a tour (you can book any time of night for a booking that is not on the next day) - Please don’t just show up as you will probably be turned away!
Do you hold weddings and events?
No, we do not hold other events at the farm. If you are looking for something in Tigoni try The Lake House.
Do you do accommodation?
No, we don’t offer accommodation but there are lots of Airbnb’s in the area. Search for Tigoni or Limuru.
What’s the weather like?
We are a little colder here then in Nairobi as we are at 7,200 ft so bring a sweater with you!
Can I bring my dog?
No, you can’t bring your dog or any other pets to the farm, please leave them at home!
