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 filmic grasslands that landscape the foothills of  Mount Kenya, Segera has been rejuvenated into a fertile home for conservation, community, culture and commerce. Behind a living cactus boma, the lush gardens flicker with sunbirds and inspire with sculptures, pools and elegant thatched villas.otential of collaboration.Segera emits creative energy and the kind of hospitality you find with favourite friends. It is a beacon for interesting minds, mavericks, art lovers and those looking for fantastic wildlife experiences, wellness, incredible dining experiences and new ways to engage with Kenya’s evolving culture. Segera’s exclusively private 50 000 acres are home to lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant and buffalo as well as endangered species such as reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra, Lelwel’s Hartebeest and African wild dog. You’ll seek out these species along with classic plains game and up to 150 bird species on daily game drives in open-sided safari vehicles with talented guides.


Six beautifully appointed villas, created from timber and thatch, are raised above a profusion of botanical life, with spectacular views onto Mount Kenya. Each villa is unique, providing complete privacy and exclusivity for the guest. The gracious Segera House and Villa Segera boast even greater privacy and luxury. The main area comprises the Paddock House, Wine Tower and renovated stables, complete with bar and dining room filled with art. The essence of Segera is as a retreat to relax and indulge either before or after you go on your safari. Wildlife is almost a secondary part of the experience. The retreat, owned by Jochen Zeitz is very much inspired by a focus on contemporary art and ideas. Use this as a base to explore the Northern Frontier by Helicopter or simply to relax, recover from jetlag or enjoy your last moments of your holiday before returning home, fully refreshedpotential of collaboration.


Dining is an experience in itself, created by talented local chefs who deliver culinary magic using organic, locally grown and free range produce. Each meal is served in a different part of the retreat. Guests at Segera can pick from a long list of entertainment, from classic safari game drives to enriching community visits, guided game walks and indulgent spa treatments.  For the adventurous, this is ideal for helicopter safari’s or a sleep-out experience in their Nay Palad Birds Nest – well worth the additional cost.
