Roaming the Team Plantations (All days: Full day tour OR optional half day tour en-route from Nakuru, Kisumu) Min 4 pax from Ksh 8,000/- per person.
Spend an invigorating day roaming the rolling hills of bright green tea-estates around Kericho. Meet the pickers, watch the end-to-end process at a local factory and relax in the tranquil gardens of a local arboretum.
From Kisumu, it’s a 90 minute drive through hills and villages up to Kericho – a small, friendly hill town, set amongst acres and acres of lime-green tea-fields – where you’ll start your day at a local factory to learn about the history of tea in this region and the end-to-end process from picking to packaging and export.
Lunch is spent in the tranquil setting of the colonial-style Tea Hotel – overlooking their colourful gardens and with lovely views of the surrounding plantations – before moving on to for a guided stroll around the tea plantations learning about this age-old industry, and getting a glance into the community lives of the workers. If you’re lucky, you can meet a few and watch them picking (sometimes as much as their body weight in one day!)
There’s time for a drive around the plantations and a stop-off at a pretty, peaceful arboretum for a soda before making your way back to Kisumu.
