Segera Retreat

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.

The Centre for the 4Cs (C4C)

This interactive experience allows you to learn about the activities on Segera and beyond. Part natural history museum, part art museum, part dreamer’s exhibition, a comprehensive tour will inspire you about the possibilities of holistic sustainability.

   

Game Drives

Wildlife can be viewed from 4x4 vehicles. Roaming freely though Laikipia, the area boasts the second highest density of wildlife in Kenya, including Endangered species such as patas monkeys, Grevy’s zebra and wild dog.

   

Guided Nature Walks

Set out under the African sun on foot and take in the beauty of the landscape and all the wildlife and birdlife it has to offer.

   

Hides and Look out Points

Spend time at our hides or look-out points and watch as the natural rhythms of the savannah play out before you.

   

Sundowners and Picnics

With such diverse and beautiful landscapes in the greater Segera area, it would be a shame to miss taking a picnic or sundowner out in the African bush.

   

Cultural Visits

Visit the local community, which offers a unique opportunity to learn from and about the people of Laikipia, their centuries-old traditions and ways of life.

   

Sleep-outs

Spend a magical and romantic evening out on your swing bed in the botanical garden or at the cattle ranch and soak up the African night.

   

Wellness Centre

Our culture of wellness is an experience that nourishes your entire being. The spa suites are complemented by the Rasul Tower with steam bath, saltwater swimming pool at the Retreat and a gym with state-of-the-art equipment.

   

Art Exhibitions

Enjoy regular exhibitions of locally and internationally acclaimed artists which allow you the rare opportunity to view the private contemporary African art collection of Segera’s owner.

   

Dining

With many fantastic indoor and outdoor settings, dining is seen as an experience at Segera. What’s more, our internationally recognised chef delivers delicious healthy meals from home-grown, organic and free-range ingredients.

   

Flying

Scenic light aircraft or helicopter flights can be arranged, offering a bird’s-eye view of the incredible landscape and insights into the ecosystem. Flying is one of best ways of appreciating the scale and diversity of the Laikipia Plateau.

   
 



Built alongside a river teeming with wildlife, the NAY PALAD Bird Nest offers a unique concept of nesting and sleeping like a bird – set above the ground, with a 360 degree birds-eye-view of this beautiful wilderness.

How does it work? After an exhilarating game drive or bush walk, guests are brought to the NAY PALAD Bird Nest just before sunset. The nest is lit up with lanterns, with champagne and culinary delights laid out on the open-air nest​,​ and inviting beds (either open-air or within the shelter of the first floor) prepared with luxurious linens and hot water bottles, ready for the night ahead. From the cozy comfort of the NAY PALAD Bird Nest, guests will enjoy ​a magical African sunset, feast on a picnic-style dinner and can fall asleep under the sparkling African sky… The following morning, a picnic breakfast delivery ​is enjoyed while watching​ ​elephants, giraffe and other wildlife ​gather ​at the river. To wake up to the magical sounds of wild animals at play, surrounded by pristine nature as far as the eye can see – this is a place of true, untouched wonderment.

With one fully-equipped bathroom, the NAY PALAD Bird Nest is technically designed to sleep two guests, but a cosy family would also be welcome – for example the parents may choose to sleep in the shelter of the first floor, but children would love the adventure of sleeping out on the top deck.

The NAY PALAD Bird Nest is a collaboration between Segera and NAY PALAD who, together with architect Daniel Pouzet’s imaginative approach to design, have created an inspiring living space unlike anything else in the world.
