December 2016 – Situated in Kenya’s Laikipia Plateau on 20 000 hectares (50 000 acres) of protected land serving as a vital migratory corridor for species like elephant, Segera offers the ultimate health and wellness retreat for guests committed to the conservation of nature, as well as to the conservation of self – mind, body and spirit.
Segera is a wildlife sanctuary dedicated to a sustainable lifestyle focused around Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce (the 4Cs). It is located at the foot of Mount Kenya, offering an inspirational backdrop for a journey that exudes the very essence of Africa: freedom, spectacular vastness, untamed fauna and fascinating encounters with ethnic traditions and African art.
“Before our guests even begin to explore the incredible Laikipia area and its offerings, they are drawn into our culture of wellness that extends to the soil, the environment and the communities that surround us. Our cuisine focuses on optimum nutrition; all our bath products are made from natural materials; and our Wellness Centre offers a variety of luxurious holistic treatments and therapies – it truly is a wonderful retreat to relax and reconnect, whilst still making a positive contribution to conservation and communities”, says GM Jens Kozany.
A range of treatments and massages can be enjoyed in the privacy of guests’ villas or at the spa, which also boasts a Rasul Chamber, a salt-water swimming pool and a-state-of-the-art gymnasium. An array of scrubs (made from soil, salt and local spices), full body therapies and massage treatments help guests unwind in luxury and comfort amidst the peace and beauty of Segera’s surroundings.
“We also ensure that our culinary offering includes a lot of raw food and herbal teas to guarantee a holistic wellness experience”, added Kozany. “Incorporating local traditions and ceremonies into the treatments on offer is extremely popular with our guests with one of the favourites being our rock bath experience with lavender, sage and camel milk.”
All oils used in Segera treatments are blended with herbs from the garden, and body wraps and detox treatments use locally-grown ingredients. Various spa packages are available and can be combined with a range of activities, including yoga, Pilates, meditation and walks.
