Segera Retreat lies on the grasslands of the Laikipia Plateau. Six beautifully appointed villas, created from timber and thatch, are raised above a profusion of botanical life, with spectacular views onto Mount Kenya. Each villa is unique, providing complete privacy and exclusivity for the guest. 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 art. The essence of Segera is as a retreat to relax and indulge either before or after you go on your safari. Wildlife is almost a secondary part of the experience.
