Best tourist location
by: Simson

Nandi hill in Kenya is famous for tea plantation. High quality tea powder is manufactured here. The climate condition here is favorable for tea plantation and this place is located far above the sea level. Avia walking shoes

I love nandy
by: patrizia

Penso che non esiste un luogo più bello al mondo di nandy hills con le sue colline verdi proiettate verso il cielo che sembra toccare con un dito. Ho lasciato il mio cuore ma un giorno ritornerò

(I think there is not a more beautiful place in the world of nandy hills with its green hills projected into the sky that seems to touch with a finger. I left my heart but one day return)

Agro-tourism centre

True!! Nandi Hills is a magnificent place to be. While visiting this area make Kip's Eco Resort your temporary home, it is a small tea farm transformed into cozy and comfortable lodge. A natural and relaxing place where you leave the travel stress behind and enjoy the everyday things in life here.

We promote agro tourism and our farm is one of the demonstration centres- You can pick your own tea leaves, experience the process of drying in a nearby tea factory and the next day you enjoy your self-picked tea.



Nandi hills tea
by: Simon Koech

..Nandi hills tea plantations is a great place to visit and if possible spend a day or two to learn more about Tea ..from the tea nursery , planting , maintaining tea tables (the green carpet ), plaucking , pruning and finally a visit to the Tea Factory itself to see the end product . I spend 11 years in one of the Tea companies in Nandi hills and the evenings while taking a walk in the tea farms left me with great memories .. Dawn In Africa Safaris.

nandi hills has beautiful tea plantations. a place to be, especially, if you wanna feel nandi huts, go to Kips' eco resort.
if you wanna feel, the true taste of kenyan tea, buy nandi tea, at the factory, or better still, make your order through me. Judy.

My brother in law works for Unilever, formerly Brooke Bond and we have done the tour there twice with our kids. It is very beautiful and the boys were very pleased with the big machines in the factory. Also, had lunch at the Tea Hotel in Kericho, which was fun. A good day trip for a Kenyan or Kenya based family as well as foreign tourists.

So green!!
by: Siggi, KTI

WOW, Andy, this looks amazing!!! Never been there, only drove through there very fast one day.
I can see it is absolutely worth a visit! Always wanted to spend a few days in that area and visit one of these tea farms and see how they operate and how tea is being made.
Spending a weekend out of the city sounds like just the thing and if you're pressed for time, it is still worth a little 'drive through' the ares on your way to or from safari.
Thank you & best wishes, Siggi
