Segera Retreat

An oasis of luxury in 50 000 acres of wild Kenyan savannah

An oasis of luxury in 50,000 acres of wild Kenyan savannah

Segera Retreat is a splash of green in a golden savannah. With a legacy of true Kenyan ranch life set against the cinematic grasslands that landscape the foothills of Mount Kenya, Segera has been rejuvenated into a fertile haven for conservation, community, culture, and commerce. Surrounded by a living cactus boma, the lush gardens shimmer with sunbirds and inspire with sculptures, pools, and elegant thatched villas.

Segera emits creative energy and the kind of hospitality that’s reminiscent of time spent with favourite friends. It stands as a beacon for interesting minds, mavericks, art lovers, and those looking for fantastic wildlife experiences, wellness, incredible dining, and new ways to engage with Kenya’s evolving culture.

Segera’s exclusive private 50,000 acres are a sanctuary for lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, and buffalo, as well as endangered species such as the reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Lelwel’s Hartebeest, and African wild dog. Embark on daily game drives in open-sided safari vehicles with skilled guides to seek out these species alongside classic plains game and up to 150 bird species.

Six beautifully appointed villas, constructed from timber and thatch, are perched above botanical life, offering stunning vistas onto Mount Kenya. Each villa is distinct, ensuring complete privacy and exclusivity for guests.

The luxurious Segera House and Villa Segera offer even greater seclusion. The main area features the Paddock House, Wine Tower, and renovated stables, replete with a bar and dining room adorned with art.

The essence of Segera is as a sanctuary to relax and indulge, whether before or after your safari. Here, wildlife is almost an incidental part of the experience, amidst the backdrop owned by Jochen Zeitz, which is deeply inspired by contemporary art and ideas.

Family-friendly accommodations are available, including Villa 4 (Family Villa), Segera House, Segera Farmhouse, and other designated villas. Child rates are noted, and private vehicles and guides can be pre-booked.

Meals at Segera are crafted by talented local chefs who conjure culinary delights using organic, locally-sourced, and free-range produce. Each meal is a unique occasion, served in varying locales around the retreat, offering consistently fresh and immersive dining experiences.

Participate in gathering wild honey dressed in bee-suits, follow tracks with topper dogs, or engage with East Africa’s pioneering female ranger teams. Immerse yourself in the local culture by meeting with the women from the SATUBO beading collective, perusing the local markets, or exploring educational institutions like the award-winning Waterbank School.

Engage with contemporary African art through guided tours that showcase one of the world’s most impressive collections. Unwind at the spa and gym, or leisurely enjoy a poolside pizza. For a more adventurous experience, book a sleep out in the unique Nay Palad Bird Nest, or take a guided tour of the gardens and solar farm.

Witness the transformative impact of Segera’s conservation efforts, which emphasize the removal of fences, sharing information, and creating migration corridors to reestablish the land as a flourishing wildlife conservation area. The reserve is home to not only iconic African predators, such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, and hyenas, but also provides a sanctuary for extraordinary birdlife and several rare and endangered species.
