About: Jens Kozany

Jens is the General Manager of Segera, a wildlife sanctuary where an inspirational journey provides a positive impact on the land and its people, focused around the 4Cs – conservation, community, culture and commerce. Returned home to Africa, G-AAMY found its rightful place amongst other significant Africana artifacts at the lodge, such as the private journals and unpublished letters of Ernest Hemingway, David Livingstone, Theodore Roosevelt and Karen Blixen. Segera is delighted to offer an incredible opportunity for major supporters of Segera’s 4Cs projects to enjoy and even fly in G-AAMY, to experience this unique aspect to a Kenyan safari.
