A luxury African safari is at or near the top of most travelers' wish lists, but the ins and outs of actually going on a safari may seem vague. Micato’s safari specialists understand this and are adept at transforming your perhaps hazy safari dream into a brilliant, achievable reality. All of Micato's safaris are designed to highlight the variety and richness of the game-viewing experience (almost invariably including the fabled Big Five: lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, rhino, and grandly gamboling elephants), typically making a morning and afternoon game drive in comfortable, well-provisioned and expertly guided safari vehicles.
No matter where you choose to explore, you can be sure you'll be treated like a well-loved, out-of-town member of the family.

Voted #1 World’s Best Safari Outfitter by Travel + Leisure an unprecedented 10 times, Micato Safaris has set the industry standard for luxury African safaris. When Felix and Jane Pinto founded Micato 60-years ago in Africa, their only business plan was to treat guests like family, an approach Travel+Leisure recognized when they wrote “Micato Safaris’ edge is personal warmth. The Pinto family run their show as though they were entertaining well-loved, out-of-town relatives.” Whether on a Classic scheduled departure or a top-to-bottom tailored Custom journey, Micato guests experience the very best game viewing with highly-credentialed guides and stay in lodges and camps that balance timeless beauty with spectacular extravagances. A highly-credentialed Micato Safari Director accompanies every East African safari. Also included are a renowned on-site 24/7 Concierge team, valet laundry, all meals, alcoholic beverages at mealtimes, every gratuity, and much more. And through The Micato One for One Commitment, the company sends a child to school for every guest on safari.
