Place: Overlooking snow-capped Mount Kenya, luxurious Segera Retreat is found on Laikipia’s savannah grasslands, home to the second-highest density of wildlife in Kenya. Game drives, guided nature walks and cultural activities showcase the environment, facilitated by an Experience Host and Guide.
Accommodation: Beautifully renovated stables form the core of the main area, while six large luxurious villas rise on wooden platforms above a profusion of botanical life. The lavish new Farmhouse Homestead, Segera House and perfectly-positioned Villa Segera boast even greater privacy and luxury. Throughout, the Retreat and its gardens are filled with selected paintings and other art from amongst Africa’s most inspiring artists from The Zeitz Collection. Other delights include a spa and gym, as well as the unique Nay Palad Bird’s Nest sleep-out. The sumptuous cuisine comprises Segera’s own free-range beef and organic vegetables.
Purpose: Owned by Jochen Zeitz, and with the support of the Zeitz Foundation, Segera Retreat is at the forefront of positive change in Kenya; its mission is to achieve a healthy, holistic balance of the 4Cs (Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce). This ethos has made the retreat a tangible example of successful multiple land-use efforts and proof that luxury can be sustainable.
