All of Micato’s Safari Directors have earned the prestigious Silver-Level certification awarded by the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association. Seasoned professions with an average of ten year’s experience in the bush, they work exclusively for Micato. All are graduates of Kenya Utaliii College or the College of African Wildlife Management, Mweka — prototypes for wildlife training institutes around the world.
In addition, to guiding forays into the bush, our Safari Directors lecture on flora and fauna, deftly handle logistics, and impart fascinating nuggets of African history, Swahili, and tribal folklore for good measure.
In South Africa, the Safari Directors meet the same lofty standards as our East African Safari Directors. (Wildlife explorations are led by a different set of specialists, the highly trained Game Rangers and trackers stationed at each of our camps and lodges.) Safari Directors have a deep knowledge of the regions’s natural history, and they’re fluent in South Africa’s cultural history, plus it’s current affairs, local art, and culinary and winery scenes — you name it.
But Micato Safari Directors’ real talent lies in their proven ability to make the logistics of travel calm and effortless for travellers.
Dear Micato Safaris,
My family just returned from our African safari and it was truly the most memorable trip of our lives! The best decision [we] made was selecting Micato Safaris to guide us….
Micato’s expertise and attention to details were extraordinary, ensuring the success of our safari. Micato’s planning information packages were particularly helpful of each of us in planning for the trip….
Our guide, Patrick, did an extraordinary job in managing all the details of our trip. We relied upon him completely and his attention to every detail made the trip appear effortless. We didn’t have to worry about anything….
Thank you for making our safari such a wonderful, memorable experience.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
My grandson and this writer had the pleasure of being your guests for the African Splendour safari. Your use of the word “splendour” in characterizing this safari is indeed appropriate. Each and every segment and moment of the safari were adventuresome and handled with a superb degree of expertise exhibited by your staff that I, having traveled the world, have never before experienced. The knowledge of history, culture, politics, shopping, lodging, and the culinary arts which your country directors commanded was nothing short of astounding….
You have my sincere appreciation for a job extremely well done and for which you deserve each and every accolade. Thank you for a wonderful safari which we will never forget! There is no doubt that Micato is the best that the world has to offer!

Our African safari was the trip and experience of a lifetime…. From lodging to meals there was not one thing that could have been better….. Our guides Rhino and Rodger were beyond the best, so knowledgeable and interesting. Our personalities just clicked. We all cried when it was time to leave…. Micato sure knows how to select only the best….
Africa has captured our hearts and Micato is the reason why!
