Chesumot Tea Estate
Chesumot is a 1500-acre farm in Kericho that produces variety of tea, including green and purple tea – popular in Japan. A large portion of the estate is covered in purple tea bushes.
There’s plenty to do on the farm, besides swimming in the dam. You can happily spend hours ambling through the tea fields, enjoying the views across the estate, or out towards the Nandi Hills, and watching the tea pickers slide their harvesting machines over the top of the tea bushes. You can also explore the estate on horseback or spend their time birdwatching by the dam or visit the neighboring Kaisugu Tea Factory.
The whole guest house and farm are accessible to guests.
You can either stay at the Chesumot Estate House or camp near the Dam where a proper campsite has been prepared. The campsite is under some lovely trees. You have to bring your own tent, but there are hot showers and a sit-down toilet for the campers.
There are four comfortable rooms in the house, a lounge and a kitchen area, which can be rented for KES 12,000 (accommodating 6). Camping costs just KES 1,000 per person.
