During any Micato Safari in Africa, you will be eating the best food – ranging from international cuisine to classical African dishes, with all dietary requirements catered for – including vegans! This is because a lot of African dishes are vegetarian and contain no animal products – and an added bonus, all of your meals are included in your safari (as well as game drive snacks throughout the day).

We have put together a list of food that you may typically find in Africa – that are some of the Micato Founders, Felix & Jane Pinto, and our African teams favourite foods.
