Raised up in the air like a gigantic nest of awe inspiring proportions is the eponymous Nay Palad Bird Nest.
Offering a 360 degree bird’s-eye-view of the surrounding wilderness, Nay Palad Bird Nest is a collaboration between Segera, Nay Palad and the architect Daniel Pouzet. Guests spend a night here following a wildlife drive or guided walk. The nest is lit with lanterns and champagne and delicious food set out on the open-air top level of the nest. Inviting beds (either open-air or within the shelter of the first floor) are prepared with soft linens and hot water bottles, ready for the night ahead.
From the comfort of the nest, guests will watch a sunset, feast on a picnic-style dinner and fall asleep under the starry sky. To wake up to the sounds of wild animals and a view as far the eye can see makes for a wonderful experience.
Rooms, food and service
Part and parcel of the redoubtable northern Kenya’s Segera Retreat, the Nay Palad Bird Nest offers guests the opportunity to sleep in an an accommodation like no other.
Champagne and picnic-style foods are laid out ready for arrival at the open-air nest for dinner. In the morning a picnic breakfast is delivered to Nay Palad Bird Nest.
With one fully-equipped bathroom, the Nay Palad Bird Nest is designed to sleep two guests, but families are also welcome, as parents could choose to sleep in the shelter of the first floor with children on the top deck. The bathroom also has solar-heated running water.
Experiences and Conservation
The Nay Palad Bird Nest is ideal for a one night stay after a wildlife drive or a bush walk in the area. In the morning elephants, giraffes and other animals can often be seen drinking at the nearby river from the nest.
In years past, the area around Nay Palad Bird Nest was frequented by poachers, the land overgrazed and the region was struggling to support its communities and wildlife. Segera has focused on conservation and engaging with the community and since this work began, many endangered species, big animals and migratory mammals have returned to the region.
