Safari! The word itself conjures images of adventure and romance.
Micato Safaris’ expeditions are luxurious by design, featuring world-class accommodations, legendary game parks, and spectacular scenery at every turn and a richness of wildlife beyond your imagination.
Micato’s goal is to offer the most meaningful, luxurious and personalized safaris, striving to exceed guests’ every expectation. There is simply no better way to connect with the people, cultures and traditions of Africa.
With dedication, unparalleled personal service and attention to detail, it is easy to see why Micato Safaris has been voted “World’s Best Tour Operator” by readers of Travel+Leisure magazine a record nine times.
But Micato is about more than just spectacular safaris-it is a company committed to giving back to the people of Africa. Hence Micato’s One for One Commitment and the AmericaShare Foundation. For every safari sold, Micato pays the fees required to send a child in Africa to school-a child who would otherwise stay home due to extreme poverty. It’s an unprecedented undertaking for a tour company and one reason why Micato was named “Overall Winner” of tour operators in Condé Nast Traveler’s “World Savers” awards in both 2010 and 2012.
Micato Safaris was founded in Kenya in 1966 by Felix and Jane Pinto, whose family has a long history in Kenya, having settled in Nairobi at the turn of the last century. They have welcomed thousands of visitors to Africa and all Micato guests travelling in East Africa are invited to have a meal at their home. Travel+Leisure wrote, and past travellers agree, that Felix and Jane treat guests like “well-loved, out of town relatives.”
