Mboi Farmhouse Homestay Itinerary

Guests arrive at the farm in the morning and are welcomed with traditional snacks and tea by the host Kagondu and his wife Rosemary.


After the snack guests move to the coffee farm where Kagondu will take them through how it is grown, picked, and graded. Later on they will see how some of it is roasted and ground for use in the farm.

 

From the coffee farm we take a village path and visit some of Kagondu’s neighbors where we learn more about village life. Then we end up in the tea farm where we put on the ‘Kigara’ (picking basket) and start picking tea.

 

If we make it in time for milking, guests can try their hand at milking one of Mboi farm’s dairy cows. After this we head to the traditional homestead where guests see and experience various aspects of Kikuyu culture. From here the ladies can head to the kitchen where Rosemary will teach them how to make some local delicacies such as Mukimo, Chapati and Ugali while preparing lunch together.


The men sit on three legged stools with village elders under the Sausage tree (Muratina tree) which is used to prepare traditional honey brewed wine. They get to sample the brew which was only taken by old men in Kikuyu culture as the elders tell them more about culture and history of the Kikuyu.

 

After a lunch spiced with traditional niceties, we then drive to the community owned fish farms, and later to the local primary school where we can stretch some muscles and break a sweat with an exciting football or volleyball game with the kids. Guests can then end the tour by planting a tree, leaving a positive footprint in the village.
