Kiambethu Farm at Limuru is just a quick drive from Nairobi, providing an engrossing insight into what life was really like on settler farms in the region. Perched at 7,200 feet, Kiambethu was purchased by a certain AB McDonell way back in 1910 – he was the first settler to grow and sell tea in Kenya, and it's now one of the nation's most lucrative exports. Many generations have lived and worked on the farm ever since. It's currently run by his granddaughter Fiona, while the farm house itself is nestled amid tranquil gardens garlanded with acres of tea and verdant forest. Look out for cheeky monkeys and plenty of other indigenous wildlife.
