THIS IS MORE THAN JUST AFRICA – THIS IS MICATO’S AFRICA

WHY MICATO’S AFRICA

  • Extraordinary and epic wildlife encounters
  • Micato’s unique access to people, places, and experiences
  • Serenity – untangle yourself from modern life

Africa, one of the only remaining places where you can observe nature in its truest form, is a blend of excitement and elegance; a place of delightful surprises and uncommon luxury – so come and discover it for yourself.

There is nowhere else on Earth where nature puts on a greater show – and not only do we provide you with front row tickets, but we also invite you to become part of the untold story and come eye-to-eye with the greatest wild animals that walk our planet. It’s not all about the animals though – people come to Africa to see its wildlife, but they leave in love with the people. 

Every Micato Safari is accompanied from beginning to end by an intensively-trained Safari Director, who represents the best African spirit.  We are extremely proud of our commitment to make a difference to the people and places we visit with our One for One Commitment promise – for every safari sold, we send a child to school.

We have more than 50 years of experience in the safari world so it’s safe to say you are in the hands of the experts. Being an African-born, family-run business, our focus is being as personal as possible, and we invite you to become part of our ever-growing family. Having such an extended network throughout Africa allows us to offer our 24-hour concierge service to each guest. This irons out any potential problems before they arise – be it a cancelled flight, a lost bag, forgotten medication – you name it!

Peace of mind is an essential ingredient of all our adventures and making sure this happens on your safari is our mission. Be prepared to fall in love… it will be the greatest holiday romance you’ll ever have.

What to Wear on Safari

So, what should you wear out in the bush?  Well, the best way to get close to the wildlife on a walking safari is to not attract unwanted attention and by trying to blend into your surroundings as much as possible.  Stick to the neutrals: greens, browns and khakis and...
