Segeralies at the very heart of the Laikipia Plateau, which is nestled between the glorious Mount Kenya to the east and the Great Rift Valley to the west. A stunningly diverse and seemingly magical environment, the Laikipia region boasts woodlands, grasslands and fertile riverbeds where water flowing from the Aberdare Mountains long ago gave rise to the Mutara River to the north, and the Ewaso Nyiro, Suguroi and Segera Rivers to the south. A cascading waterfall flows from the Segera River and the natural Ivy Springs, found in the Valley of Kiseregai Creek, attract herds of elephant, buffalo, giraffe, warthog and many other native species throughout the year. Preserving the unique biodiversity in the Laikipia region is an essential cornerstone of the conservation efforts in Kenya as a whole. Here, wildlife populations and habitats are being conserved on mostly private and communal lands.
With Mount Kenya as the backdrop and spectacular views over the Laikipia Plateau, Segera Retreat is an extraordinary oasis of beauty. Private villas surrounded by unspoiled African landscape, a vast and varied botanical garden with lush native and exotic plants, and a sculpture garden whose works of art stand sentry over native African wildlife—around every corner awaits another striking and unforgettable vista.
Dining at Segera is personalized and highly creative. Meals and high teas feature the freshest ingredients from our own fruit, vegetable and herb gardens, or sourced from neighbouring farms. Choose to eat al fresco by the communal pool or on your villa’s private lounge area, in the Wine Tower, or in one of our dining areas—the Paddock House with stunning views of the African landscape and Mount Kenya, or in the renovated horse stables, a unique place for intimate dining and cosy relaxation by the fireplace. Segera’s excellent chefs offer many cuisine options that suit many regimes, including classic continental, vegetarian or raw food.
Each activity at Segera observes the 4Cs: from wildlife monitoring and species conservation, to renewable energy and recycled water efforts; from community training, employment and cultural preservation, to using locally grown produce and purchasing from socially responsible wine cultivars. The 4C concept brings together conservation, community and culture within the realm of commerce. This is an example for industry to follow: people, planet and profit. We hope to encourage businesses to act today for a better tomorrow.
