Book by May 31, 2024

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. 

Book your African Safari and receive a $250 Spa credit per person for use at applicable accommodations along your safari.

South Africa: Johannesburg
Botswana: Okavango Delta, Khwai Private Reserve
Zambia: Victoria Falls
Zimbabwe: Hwange National Park

Botswana’s Okavango Delta, a world-unique oasis of smoothly meandering waterways, lagoons bubbling with hippos, idyllic minisavannah islands, the “most unexpected of wonders,” as Frans Lanting wrote, “water in the desert,” gently pulsing water that brings life to a dazzling population of wildlife. Victoria Falls, Mosi-oa-Tunya, “The Smoke That Thunders,” far and away the planet’s grandest waterfall—as we like to say, one of the planet’s grandest anythings— brimming with “scenes so lovely [they] must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight,” rhapsodized David Livingstone, the first outsider to succumb to the Falls’ immense charisma. And not far from the colossal cascade, Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park’s archetypal African landscapes, roamed in natural freedom by the fabled Big Five and five score other mammals and 20 score colourful avians, making Hwange one of the continent’s finest game-viewing, traveller-enchanting destinations.

African Splendour15 days - Land Only

Exclusive Bonus: $250 Spa Credit per person for use at applicable accommodations along your safari
South Africa: Cape Town
Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls

We’re not sure why, but great journeys often involve great contrasts. African Splendour is a case in point. On the full 15-day safari (the first 5 days in Southern Africa are optional), we range through 34 degrees of latitude and four countries, but, most engagingly and contrastingly, we experience the diverse excitements of Cape Town’s urban pizzazz, the watery colossus of Victoria Falls, and the wondrous game lands of the Serengeti-Maasai Mara ecosystem, where the wandering rains compel the planet’s most momentous movement of big, interesting mammals. (And then there’s the Ngorongoro Crater, which really can’t be contrasted with any other place, because there really isn’t any other place remotely like it, at least on our home planet.)

Jewels of Southern Africa11 days - Land Only

We honour many of Africa’s jewels on our safaris, and on this wonderfully eventful, under-two-week safari we present three especially radiant gems: sparkly Cape Town, gargantuan Victoria Falls, and the classically golden savannahs and lush forests of the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve, next to Kruger National Park. We begin with four nights in Cape Town’s knockout One&Only, a resort of outsize luxury on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and a superb base for explorations in this most cosmopolitan of cities and its varied, magnificent environs. Then comes a splendid four nights in the bush at beautifully designed Tengile River Lodge, on a serene bend in the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve’s Sand River. We end with a perennial favourite, the famed Royal Livingstone, where mist from nearby Victoria Falls freshens our day.

The Micato Grand Safari13 days - Land Only

Exclusive Bonus: $250 Spa Credit per person for use at applicable accommodations along your safari
Kenya: Nairobi, Amboseli, Maasai Mara.
Tanzania: Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti

The grand, glamourous, unabashedly luxurious safaris favoured by princes and princesses, potentates, plutocrats, and ex-presidents (Teddy Roosevelt’s epic 1909 safari was one of the first of its sumptuous kind) are central to East Africa’s heritage as one of the world’s most desired destinations. This Grand Safari is Micato’s homage to those old and romantic days, to their indulgent and exquisite grace.

The Micato Grand Safari’s six flights make travel between game preserves and luxury camps a seamless, time-saving joy. And our stays in places like the airy Tortilis Camp in Amboseli; Bateleur or Governor’s Il Moran camps in the Maasai Mara; the charmingly luxe Four Seasons Safari Lodge or Grumeti Serengeti River Lodge in the Serengeti; and, of course, the Lewa Safari Camp on the Laikipia Plateau bring us into close and comfortable contact with some of Africa’s richest game lands and most stirring landscapes.

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 and India journeys.

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 touring and game viewing with highly credentialed guides and stay in hotels, lodges, and camps that balance timeless beauty with spectacular extravagances. A highly-credentialed Micato Travel Director accompanies every African safari and India journey. Also included are a renowned on-site 24/7 Concierge team, valet laundry, all meals, alcoholic beverages at mealtimes, every gratuity, and much more.
