Six timber and thatch villas are raised above a profusion of botanical life in the Segera “Oasis” with its sculpture garden; their elevated wooden platforms look out onto the surrounding savannah, swing beds below providing the perfect shaded midday relaxation as well as for a night out under the stars, surrounded by the sounds of Africa. The gracious Segera House and perfectly positioned Villa Segera boast similarly spectacular views and even greater privacy and luxury. Run on solar energy and water being sustainably harvested and recycled, the villas gaze out over the Laikipia Plateau towards the spectacular Mount Kenya.
Within the privacy of the villas, a large bedroom and en-suite bathroom fill the upstairs space under timber trusses. A private sun deck in the garden offers comfortable sun loungers for soaking up the African sun, while a Jacuzzi bath, sunk into the deck outside the bedroom, offers a unique vantage point. Each villa includes in its décor original, individually selected paintings and other art from a range of Africa’s most inspiring artists.
Around the Retreat
The main area allows for exploration, relaxation and enjoyment.
The original stables have been beautifully renovated; the boxes in which the horses used to stay overnight have been restored carefully, keeping their original beauty. Along with the nearby Wine Tower, this forms part of the main area complete with bar and dining room filled with selected art of locally and internationally acclaimed artists. The Paddock House, which is situated in the old horse paddock, provides stunning views of Mount Kenya from its vast terraces, with ample space for comfortable lounging, reading and relaxing during the day and evening. Guests also have the rare opportunity to view the private art collection of Segera’s owner, which includes a number of striking sculptures that dot the retreat, including the botanical garden in the “Oasis” and throughout the landscape of Segera.
