Segera is a luxury accommodation and sits on a vast open landscape with views of Mount Kenya and the Loldaiga Hills – the bush often gives way to open plains and vast expanses of pristine African wilderness. Just eight luxury villas in a private game reserve of 50,000 acres in the foothills of Mt Kenya makes Segera very private and exclusive.
See all of the Big Five in addition to rarer species such as Wild Dog, Reticulated Giraffe and Grevy’s Zebra. The reserve enjoys stunning landscapes, including views of Mount Kenya right from the lodge.
Fusing absolute luxury with environmentally friendly technology, Segera Retreat is a splash of green in a golden savannah. What once corralled cattle away from predators is now a lush botanical garden with mammoth indigenous euphorbia trees shading flowering pathways that link thatched elevated villas to pools, daybeds, bars and lounge areas.
The game here is abundant and the conservation and community initiatives second to none. Some of the nicest, most charming and efficient staff work here, all employed from the local area with a vested interest in what is their land. The lodge itself is extremely luxurious with gourmet food, an enviable wine cellar, outdoor bathtubs, a spa, a private two roomed honeymoon retreat with private pool, and one of the most impressive private houses in Africa complete with old Toyota and Rolls in the sitting room and dining room – a must for anyone wanting exclusivity.
