This was a lifetime experience!
Segera exudes beauty from the minute you step in it. You are surrounded by most beautiful landscapes, powerful modern African art, and beautiful gardens. The villas are nothing but utter luxury and beauty as you encounter nature and see the animals from the safety of your villa.
Every minute we spent there was a heart opening experience. The food was delicious. The staff were super kind and nice. And of course there is the AMAZING safari experiences. We still bright up with excitement when we think of all the animals we saw from elephants to zebras. Both the walking and the driving safari were superb and can never choose which one we liked better: we LOVED both of them. And oh, there were the picnics by the river taking you back to scenes of a romantic movie and the amazing dinner experiences every night with new surprises of the setting and the ambiance. All of that, which we could still go the gym every day and do our rounds at the pool. It is truly a life experience. I can't wait to go back again.
