Is this the luxury safari camp of the future?

Here’s the formula for your average luxury safari camp: Faux artifacts plus tents and plunge pools add up to a look that’s neocolonial, tribal—or a bit of both. But the new Segera Retreat, on 50,000 acres of Kenya’s mile-high Laikipea Plateau, upends that tired equation. Its modern thatch-and-timber aesthetic may not be safari-specific, yet it looks right at home on a savanna filled with zebras, giraffes, and gazelles. The owners of the six-villa, two-house resort work with local Masai ranchers to preserve the plateau, where cattle coexist with wildlife and, in a twist, offer camel treks as well as game drives (from $1,100 per person per night, all-inclusive).
