The Laikipia region of central Kenya is a patchwork quilt of private wildlife conservancies, most home to just a handful of exclusive safari properties. Segera Retreat is exactly as the name suggests, an idyllic retreat in the heart of 50,000 acres of private wilderness. This is a place where, in keeping with current travel trends, you can linger for longer.
A collection of one to three-bedroom villas and houses, those who wish to tuck themselves away in their own private wilderness can do so. For those looking for more interaction, the main Retreat has a star deck, wine tower, stables, pool and spa where guests can gather to unwind and share stories of the day’s adventures.
The safari experience at Segera now makes it a viable one-stop safari destination, but the conservancy offers so much more. Try your hand at traditional bee-keeping, take an African Art tour, spend a night under the stars at Nay Palad Birds Nest, head out with Segera’s anti-poaching unit, take to the skies in the original Out of Africa biplane, or spend time in the company of Segera’s local communities. And that is before you have spent a morning in the spa, enjoyed a cookery lesson, or whiled away an evening in Segera’s outdoor cinema. Enquire now
