Combining exclusive access to some of the most thrilling experiences to be had on the continent with unparalleled luxury, Micato Safaris has been the premier safari company in southern Africa for nearly 60 years. 

Here’s what you can expect from six decades of excellence when you book your next African getaway through Micato and AAA Vacations®. 

Experience Africa with Micato Safaris 

Founded in 1966, Micato Safaris has become synonymous with comfort, excellent planning and unforgettable safari experiences for over 57 years. The company was established by Felix Pinto, a respected Kenyan businessman and farmer, and his wife Jane, making local knowledge and experience an integral part of the company’s ethos. Along the way, the company has grown into one of Africa’s largest and most trusted safari providers, incorporating first-class service with a longstanding philosophy based on cultural interaction, education and exceptional comfort. 

Unbeatable luxury 

The Micato Safaris team makes luxury the first thing that comes to mind for their customers. Each of their safari packages includes first-class accommodations such as: 

  • Nairobi’s historic Fairmont Norfolk Hotel and the modern Kempinski Villa Rosa 
  • Sir Richard Branson’s Mahali Mzuri on the Maasai Mara Game Reserve 
  • Okavango’s Mapula Lodge 
  • Sable Alley on the Khwai Private Reserve 
  • And Micato Safaris’ own Thorntree River Lodge, just up the Zambezi River from the stunning Victoria Falls. 

At each stop along the way, whether in town or in the bush, Micato Safaris’ attentive staff will ensure that only the finest-quality food is served, travelers’ specific needs and preferences are met, and that lodgings are up to their exacting high standards. 

Personal touches 

Since its inception, Micato Safaris has been a family project for the Pintos, which can be seen in the many personal touches added to their packages their competitors can’t recreate. Perhaps the best example is the chance to enjoy a relaxing meal with the Pintos themselves at their family home in Nairobi or with family friends in Cape Town or Johannesburg. 

In the bush, the smaller group sizes accommodated by Micato mean more personalized attention and a better overall experience. Plus, as locals intimately connected with the region, the company has longstanding relationships with professionals, artists, local leaders and others who’ll work to make your journey as informative and enjoyable as possible. 

Effortless planning 

A key part of the Micato Safaris experience is peace of mind. When you book your trip with them, they’ll see to every logistical and organizational detail, from transportation to lodging and food and everything else their customers could need. For that reason, Micato is the company to choose if you want to spend your valuable vacation time relaxing while seasoned professionals attend to essential planning and preparation.
