Out of Africa at Segera
In 2015 we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of the Oscar-winning movie, ‘Out of Africa' starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford. Based on Karen Blixen’s memoirs of her adventurous life in early twentieth-century Kenya, the film is widely regarded as a classic. Alongside G-AAMY – the original biplane from the movie which is now based at Segera – guests have plenty of reasons to get excited about experiencing this momentous anniversary at Segera Retreat.
Guests will have the opportunity to watch 'Out of Africa' projected on a big screen in the Retreat's Explorer Lounge. No ordinary movie night, this is an experience made all the more poignant and memorable as you will be surrounded by Karen Blixen's original diaries and other artefacts, and transported back in time to a bygone era – perhaps with a glass of whisky in hand and some light 1920s jazz drifting from an antique gramophone…
Masai Mara & Laikipia Combo
What a wonderful combination, to begin your safari with the hustle-and-bustle excitement of the Masai Mara's Great Migration, in which over a million wildebeest annually follow the rains between the Masai Mara and the adjoining Serengeti in Tanzania! This is followed by a stay at Segera where you can enjoy the quiet, relaxed privacy of a conservancy in Laikipia. Segera Retreat offers all the luxuries of time and exclusivity – not only to enjoy the Retreat itself, but also to experience more personal encounters with the wildlife that lives here.
The Masai Mara and Laikipia together demonstrate Kenya's beautifully diverse landscapes and ecosystems, and this combination enables guests to witness the country's incredibly diverse range of species. A wonderful opportunity to compare and contrast the Masai Mara's topi and seemingly endless herds of wildebeest, zebra and plains game, with Laikipia's exclusively northern species of beisa oryx, Grevy's zebra, patas monkey and reticulated giraffe – not to mention of course, everyone's favourite big cats and elephants in both locations.
