Did you know that Kenya is one of the world’s major tea producers? And the climatic conditions there are perfect for growing flavorful coffee. You can sign up for one of the fascinating agricultural tours in Kenya and enjoy a hands-on experience visiting tea, coffee and flower farms, with fascinating side trips to famous game reserves mixed in.

Get Up Close to Coffee Farming

Agricultural tours in Kenya, East Africa, generally run from seven to nine days. To begin, you will be picked up from your hotel in Nairobi and spend the day at the Thika Coffee Millers. You can tour the farm, the factory and the mills, and learn about coffee production from picking to packing. Naturally, coffee tasting is included in this visit.

Discover the Secret of High-Quality Tea Production

The secret of producing great tea is all about the picking. While visiting the Moi Farm in the central highlands, you will be taught how to pick properly, because this is what gives Kenyan tea its excellent taste. Moi is also a coffee farm and you will see how one of the world’s favorite products is grown, and participate in the coffee grading, roasting and grinding operations. Activities at the farm will take up much of your day, but if there is time, you can walk into the local village for a look around before heading off to a lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.

Search For the Big Five

The agricultural tours in Kenya also include forays into popular parks such as the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Part of the famed Serengeti plains, the park is home to the Big Five: lion, leopard, rhino, cape buffalo and elephant, and because of the heavy concentration of these animals, you have a good chance of seeing some of them.

Add a Lake to Your List of Destinations

Your itinerary may include a visit to Lake Nakuru, part of a sanctuary where you have the opportunity to see endangered animals, such as the white rhinoceros and the Rothschild giraffe. Lions and leopards are commonly seen here, and if you love birds, you can give your camera a workout. There are more than 400 bird species to be found in this reserve.

Rely on Safari Professionals

The same people who plan once-in-a-lifetime safaris for their clients also do a superb job of arranging agricultural tours in Kenya. Visiting coffee, tea and flower farms in East Africa is bound to be an experience you will never forget when you book one of the agricultural tours by Designer Tours & Travel.
