In the wild heart of Laikipia, the stylish Segera Retreat offers guests an incredibly luxurious home away from home, with the addition of a whole lot of African charm and some seriously stunning views to boot.
There are several accommodation options for guests here. The six spacious Villas offer private decks and chic interiors; Villa Segera comes complete with a swinging bridge and private pool; and Segera House sleeps four in a huge two storey private house with a pool. With worn woods and exposed thatched roofs alongside plush bedding and warm neutral tones, the effortlessly stylish décor puts a contemporary twist on the traditional African safari lodge. And for those seeking a really unique experience, opt for a night in NAY PALAD Bird Nest. This treehouse style room is set in the middle of the savannah and boast a cosy interior bedroom (with en suite) and a beautiful stargazing roof terrace modelled on a birds nest.
Dining at Segera Retreat is as much a part of the Kenyan experience as the game drives are. Since there is no set dining venue or menu, meals are designed to reflect both the guest's personal tastes and the setting of the meal. Opt for a romantic theme on your private deck, an indulgent feast in the wine tower, a Gatsby style dinner in the Explorer Lounge or a relaxed picnic overlooking Mount Kenya. Fresh seasonal ingredients are used in all dishes and the wine tower stores a selection of the finest African wines and French champagnes.
Aside from enjoying your luxurious accommodation and the beautiful botanical gardens at Segera, there is an abundance of activity to be had here. With daily game drives included in your stay, expect to see Big Five game and all manner of other weird and wonderful wildlife, then wander through the sculpture garden, visit a local community or indulge in a yoga class or treatment at the wellness centre. The lodge also partners with a trusted helicopter provider to offer excursions to the nearby Mount Kenya, the Rift Valley, the Great Lakes and the Suguta Valley.
