General Manager of Segera Retreats in Kenya
German born Hotelier Jens Kozany arrived in Africa 15 years ago. In 2013, he and the philanthropist Jochen Zeitz opened Segera Retreat, a luxury resort in a 50,000-hectare private nature reserve that has risen to international fame as an award-winning eco-luxury safari retreat in Kenya, East Africa. As a Founding Member of The Long Run and under Zeitz’s guidance, Kozany pioneered The Long Run’s 4C philosophy through Segera, achieving true sustainability through a holistic balance of Conservation, Community, Culture and Commerce. It is through this approach that Segera has become a driving force in promoting sustainable thinking and practice, setting a new standard for sustainable tourism worldwide.
