(An oasis of luxury in 50 000 acres of wild Kenyan savannah)

Located in the heart of Laikipia Plateau, just north of the Equator in Kenya, Segera is a unique destination with both arid and savannah landscapes. Just eight luxury villas in a private game reserve of 50,000 acres in the foothills of Mt Kenya makes Segera very private and exclusive. See all of the Big Five in addition to rarer species such as Wild Dog, Reticulated Giraffe and Grevy’s Zebra.

The reserve enjoys stunning landscapes, including views of Mount Kenya right from the lodge.

Owned by the Zeitz Foundation, the Global Long Run Initiative at Segera supports Cheetah, Wild Dog & Patas Monkey conservation.

Greater Segera:

50,000-acre Segera Conservancy, a private Game Reserve open to only 20 guests.
Opportunity to seek Big Cats, large mammals and plains game, while enjoying a temperate climate. A vital migratory route for Elephants.

The Ewasu ecosystem lies at the equator, and as part of the Great Rift Valley, is one of the most scenic landscapes in Kenya. Segera offers diverse wooded savannahs, four rivers and a beautiful cascading waterfall.

Out of Africa views:

Who could forget the scenery from the film; with aerial footage of a flock of flamingo roused over a picturesque great lake? The Rift Valley region was the location for the scene. The original 1929 fixed-wing yellow Gipsy Moth plane used in the movie was purchased at an auction by Segera and returned home to Kenya. This refitted aircraft still flies over the stunning scenery of Mount Kenya and the nearby lakes, piloted by owner Jochen Zeitz.
