Micato Safaris—named the Travel+Leisure #1 World’s Best Safari Outfitter an unprecedented nine times—has been setting the standard for luxury and service for nearly 50 years. Micato programs deliver the very best experiences and lodgings in destinations throughout East Africa, Southern Africa and India.
Sumptuous experiences await the Micato traveler from the stunning Serengeti and Kalahari to South Africa’s enchanting Cape Winelands and beyond, in the company of Micato’s highly-credentialed safari directors and driver-guides. Each lodge and camp balances timeless beauty with spectacular extravagances from personal butlers and en-suite plunge pools to secluded private verandas overlooking the wilderness.
A Micato adventure is life changing both for the traveler and for a child in Africa. Through the company’s One for One Commitment, for every safari they sell, they send a child to school. Micato’s nonprofit arm, AmericaShare, also operates a boarding school sponsorship program and provides outreach through their community center in the heart of Nairobi’s Mukuru slum. Micato’s philanthropic work has twice earned them Condé Nast Traveler’s prestigious World Savers Awards for “Education” and “Doing it All.”
Travel + Leisure states, “Micato’s edge is personal warmth. The Pinto family runs their show as though entertaining well-loved, out-of-town relatives.” This warm touch and personalized service means that every last program includes every luxury. Three to seven time-saving bush flights per safari, only the most deluxe lodgings for all programs, private 24/7 concierges, sundowner cocktails in the bush, and a policy of no tipping necessary, ever.
