Set in the heart of Laikipia, one of Kenya’s most exciting safari locations, Segera Retreat offers the literal “Out of Africa” experience. Conservationist Jochen Zeitz has personally curated the lodge with all the accouterments, including the yellow biplane from the Oscar-winning movie “Out of Africa.” As a Satellite of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) in Cape Town, Segera Retreat displays Zeitz’s world-renowned collection of contemporary art from Africa and its Diaspora, including an evocative Sculpture Garden.
Traditional wildlife viewing as well as bush walks and art walks in the stunningly diverse environment burst with excitement and beauty. In addition, the central location grants easy access to the Aberdare Mountain Range, majestic Mount Kenya, the Rift Valley and Great Lakes on a helicopter excursion. Visit Segera’s local communities including: The Samburu, Maasai, Turkana and Borana. Wellness is a focus at Segera, where dining options as well as spa offerings support a holistic approach to wellbeing and reflection.
Located in a non-malarial area and with a year-round moderate climate, Segera is the ideal family safari destination for any season. Long rains usually occur in April/May with short rains between October and November. After rainy seasons the grass turns green and lush, the flora blooms and the native wildlife do what native wildlife does. Sharp-eyed visitors will be able to spot newborn animals all around the region.
