At Micato, we love hearing from our travellers. Below is a sampling of comments from recent guests returning from Africa. In addition to these testimonials, we can also provide you with references.
President, Great Getaways Travel
Our African Splendour safari was our 50th anniversary “bucket list” trip and we wanted a great African experience. We were not disappointed! We can see why Micato has earned the award as the World’s Best Safari Outfitter in Travel & Leisure magazine nine times.
All of our Micato guides in Cape Town, Victoria Falls, Tanzania, and Kenya were extremely knowledgeable both about their local history and about the animals that we would see. The Micato drivers in all locations were excellent…we were met by Micato representatives at all airports and at all hotels and they took care of everything.
I don’t know what it’s like in Africa at other times of year, but for the trip we took in October-November it couldn’t have been more enjoyable and was worth the extra cost to have a truly bucket-list adventure. And we would highly recommend Micato Safaris if you are thinking of going to Africa and want the experience of a lifetime!

It was an incredible experience, one we hope to repeat (in S.Africa this time). Your staff, accommodations, food, gifts, personalized service & your beautiful animals far surpassed our expectations. We would not consider coming back with any other company.
Absolutely the best! Also appreciate your involvement w/environmental issues and helping better the education and lives of the African people.

Everything was perfect. We felt like royalty! No wonder Micato has won so many prizes. We will recommend you to all our friends.
You have the best staff and they love their bosses!

. . . my wife forgot a bag with her medication. Your staff person actually went to drug stores in Nairobi and found the medicine.. . going the extra step big time. We were alone since our group left the night before and the Pintos invited us to breakfast. They are fabulous people. Every single person associated with your company did similar things.
We saw the Migration and a river crossing. Micato’s guides stayed while all the other companies left – what a bonus! You are truly professionals.
Wonderfully, inspiring materials that helped me get even more excited about the safari. “Tent” will never have the same meaning again. Like living in a dream.
The drivers were stupendous. Our driver in Tanzania was an incredible tracker with insights and intuition that clearly comes from years of experience.
Micato is truly an exceptional company with exceptional people … exceptional attention to detail. The level of customer service from Micato staff is unparalleled. Micato staff are instantly warm and friendly; connecting with everyone they meet like old friends reuniting.

The Pintos were so kind and gracious.
Your customer service staff added so much, pre-trip.

5-star experience: I am so happy that my wife and I made the decision to travel with Micato. My health condition was not a consequence of the trip…it could have happened any where. But…the way I was treated and taken care of…I really credit with being absolutely instrumental in the happy outcome. Forever grateful to the Pintos and Micato staff. Absolutely wonderful, and I fully believe saved my life.

I would like to say thanks to all Micato family. I went with my wife in our Honeymoon, in July 2014 to Tanzania, and you guys made it unforgettable. Special thanks to all the people that made it possible, our director tour guide Nuru ( what a great person with excellent attitude and always making surprises that made our trip more special and making the experience unique) our drivers Anthony in Nairobi, Frederick in Tarangire and Lake Manyara, and Ernest in Serengeti, they were so great and always with a big smile in their faces.
Also special thanks to everyone that help us in the airports, and made us surprises in the hotels rooms. Finally, Thanks to Jane in Nairobi, she help us out with everything that we need it, making this trip easier from all the aspect. I am grateful to have the opportunity of experience that trip in the hands of Micato Safari, which in our opinion is simply the Best safari tour operator ever. Thank you very much.
