Segera Camp

A visit to the Laikipia region guarantees a unique experience filled with the vibrant culture, wildlife and serenity of a landscape found at the foothills of Mount Kenya, which in itself is a spectacular site.


The Review

Considered the gateway to Kenya's wild and scarcely populated northern frontier country, Laikipia's ranches are home to both cattle and wildlife. In recent years the Laikipia’s ranches have become a valuable asset, with many of them establishing guest lodges. This has resulted in a hugely positive impact on the land, its wildlife and conservation.

It is on this basis that Segera functions. Located right in the centre of these highlands, Segera plays an important role in the conservation of these lands. Guests will have the opportunity to appreciate this rare sanctuary in exceptional luxury.

Your Stay
Segera Camp is aimed at travellers who don't want to give up the luxury but are also cautious of conservation and sustainability. This camp in Kenya's Laikipia region runs on solar energy. Guests bunk in six thatched-roofed villas outfitted with African artwork and featuring a Jacuzzi bath just outside the hut and sunk into a private wooden-platform deck. The Zeitz Sculpture Garden is nearby too, stocked with exquisite installations from across Africa and its diaspora.

Within the privacy of the villas, a large bedroom and en-suite bathroom fill the upstairs space under spectacular timber trusses. A private sun deck in the garden offers comfortable sun loungers for soaking up the African sun and a swing bed for whiling the hours away.

On the property are stables, a bar, and a library with local art hung on its walls, along with big-ticket amenities like a spa, gym, and pool. Meals can be taken outside whether on a deck, in a sun lounger or protected from the sun under a gazebo.

Segera's rolling savannah and woodland also play host to good densities of charismatic species. Predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah and spotted hyaena can be seen; numbers of elephant, buffalo, eland, reticulated giraffe and beisa oryx often form a backdrop to the wide plains; and there is a wealth of plains game including zebra, Grant's gazelle, Defassa waterbuck and impala.

Activities facilitated through a Villa Attendant, are flexible and can be tailor-made to one’s requirements and preferences. These include cultural tours, bush walks, game drives and spending time with game scouts and anti-poaching staff.

For guests keen to explore further afield, helicopter flights showcasing the expanse and contrast of the country at locations like Samburu and Mount Kenya can also be arranged. Guests are further spoiled for choice with a spa, gym and central pool.

Getting There

The international flight to Nairobi takes about 8-hour 30-minute. From Nairobi Wilson Airport there are daily flights to Nanyuki or you can book a private charter flight (1-hour), directly to Mukenya airstrip. By road, Segera is a 2-hour drive (or a short private charter) from Nanyuki and a 5-hour drive from Nairobi.
