A TRUE AFRICAN LANDSCAPE


Segera Retreat lies on the grasslands of the Laikipia Plateau, its six timber and thatch villas raised above a profusion of botanical life looking out to Mount Kenya. Each large, en-suite bedroom has a private sun deck with sun loungers and a swing bed and a Jacuzzi bath, sunk into the deck outside the bedroom.

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 contemporary African art from the Zeitz Collection.

Wildlife at Segera Retreat

Laikipia forms part of the 56 000-square-kilometre Ewaso ecosystem with a wildlife population density comparable only to that of the Maasai Mara. As well as supporting the Endangered patas monkey, African wild dog and 40% of the world's remaining Grevy's zebra,  Segera has good densities of lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyaena, elephant, buffalo, eland, reticulated giraffe and beisa oryx. There is also a wealth of plains game. The number of bird species recorded in the area totals 365.
