A true African landscape at Segera Retreat
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.

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.
All our activities showcase our sustainability values. Engage with local cultures, learn about conservation and community, and experience the magical wildlife of Laikipia.
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.
Wildlife can be viewed from 4×4 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.

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.
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.
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.
