Nairobi: Tea Farm Day Trip with Lunch & Waterfall Hike

1. Nairobi: Tea Farm Day Trip with Lunch & Waterfall Hike

The experience begins at 9.30 am, with tea and fresh scones while the host gives an informal history about the farm, followed by an introductory tea tasting before we head out to the purple tea farm. While at the farm, guests are taught how to pick tea, after which they pick some purple tea. This tea will then be taken back to the farm where guests will be taught how to make their very own specialty orthodox tea (this includes learning to roast it, roll it by hand, dry it then pack it for themselves to take home). After guests make their very own hand-picked and rolled purple tea, they head off to the waterfall trek through a beautiful bamboo forest finishing off with a refreshing dip at the waterfall by the farm. Guests then return back to the farmhouse in time for a farm-fresh 3-course meal, crowning the day with a bonfire in the gardens as guests leave at their pleasure. Guests that would like to visit our specialty cottage Factory can do so at this point. For those who would like to stay over, we offer accommodation at the farmhouse for an authentic overnight stay at the purple tea farm.

What people are saying about Nairobi

I was very lucky to have Paul Oyugi as my guide! We was very nice during the 12h we’ve spent together visiting the amazing Nakuru National Park, it’s lake, and then Lake Naivasha with a wonderful lunch buffet at Lake Naivasha Crescent Camp. I saw a lot of animals at Nakuru Park and then the flamingos and pelicans in the lake was breathtaking. The boat ride at Naivasha Lake was also very special, saw a lot of different bird species and Crescent island by the lake as well. I paid the park fees + lunch (which was optional) + boat trip directly and would recommend to do it like that. Thank you Paul for such an unforgettable experience!!!

A once-in-a-lifetime experience! Our driver Danson went above and beyond to show us all the wildlife at Lake Nakuru. Totally recommend this activity, it was such an incredible day! That being said, we also did the optional boat ride but it wasn't worth the $80 we paid just to see a family of hippos. This, however, has nothing to do with the overall activity, since the boat ride was optional. Just a thought for those considering the boat ride.

I flew in for work and really wanted to tour the city in one day, and Ben made it possible! Ben is an amazing tour guide, Ismail is a safe and friendly driver, and they make a perfect duo to make the most of your visit. I definitely recommend booking through them, whether alone or with a group. Kenya is awesome!

Great experience, Nakuru is close to Nairobi and I saw so many animals. I went there for flamingos and I was not disappointed! Also the route is very scenic, so worth the 3 hours driving. Stephen was a great driver and guide and Gracepatt a very flexible and responsible agency. Fully recommended!

A great experience with very good guides. We were able to see up and down the main important places of this huge city. Great!
