Luxury Kenyan camp, Segera Retreat, looked after by leading African operator Wilderness Premier, is offering guests the opportunity to experience a Sacred Safari from 22nd to 27th May 2017. Internationally renowned healing artists, Jodina Carey and Andrew Clark, will guide guests through a week of yoga, meditation and live crystal sound baths, surrounded by Segera Retreat’s botanical gardens and 20 000 hectares of pristine African wilderness.
“We are delighted to have holistic healers of such a high calibre at Segera. Both Jodina and Andrew epitomise the culture of wellness that we strive to achieve and we are confident that we can provide the ideal wilderness setting to inspire and rejuvenate our guests”, said General Manager Jens Kozany.
Segera is a wildlife sanctuary dedicated to sustainability, achieved through a sensitive balance of Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce (the 4Cs). It is located at the foot of Mount Kenya, offering an inspirational backdrop for a unique safari journey that exudes the very essence of Africa: freedom, spectacular vastness, untamed fauna and fascinating encounters with African art and traditions.
Aside from the daily Sacred Safari activities, which will include yoga on outdoor meditation decks and restorative sound healing sessions, guests can enjoy calming walks through Segera’s exotic gardens, Segera’s contemporary art collection, opulent river picnics, extended game viewing opportunities and visits to Segera’s various community projects.
A range of treatments and massages can be enjoyed in the privacy of guests’ villas or at Segera’s Wellbeing Space, including homemade scrubs made from oils blended with herbs picked from the garden, body wraps and detox treatments using locally-grown ingredients. Segera’s own organic farm provides fresh produce daily, creating nutritious and delicious menus featuring fresh juices, raw salads, smoothies and meals to suit all dietary requirements.
“All these elements combine to create an unforgettable week of healing in the wilderness – a chance to reconnect with nature and inspire your mind, body and soul in the luxury, peace and beauty of Segera’s surroundings,” said Kozany.
