Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you’re seeking to reconnect with nature and embrace a new way of viewing humanity’s relationship with the natural world then Segera is the place for you. Considered the gateway to Kenya’s wild, we bring you exceptional private service in a unique oasis. Six timber and thatch villas surround a profusion of botanical life in the landscaped gardens and from their raised wooden platforms gaze out over the savannah. The sumptuous Segera House and perfectly positioned Villa Segera boast similarly spectacular views and even greater privacy and luxury. The owner’s exceptional African Art Collection is presented throughout, while the magnificent backdrop of Mount Kenya can be viewed from our common areas. Delicious home-grown food is the order of the day at Segera, served in a number of locations around the Retreat. Experience the difference with a guided camel safari at Segera! Whether you decide to walk amongst the herd or ride through the Laikipian bush on these magnificent creatures… a camel safari promises to deliver a totally unique African experience! Our expert guides and friendly herders will take you on an adventure of a lifetime to get up-close and personal with the wildlife of this beautiful area and a delicious gourmet picnic completes your “Out of Africa” camel expedition.Did you know?With the support of the Zeitz Foundation, Segera is at the forefront of change in Kenya, in which it contributes to the vision of an ecosystem in the healthiest possible state. At 20 000 hectares, Segera consists of high-altitude acacia grasslands and is centrally located in the highlands of Laikipia. The activities here include cultural tours, bush walks, game drives and spending time with game scouts and anti-poaching staff. Helicopter flights are also available. This area is a sanctuary for elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, eland and a wealth of plains game, including the endemic reticulated giraffe, Grevy’s zebra and beisa oryx. ... more   less
