Let Others Say it for Us

Let Others Say It For Us


Over the last 45 years, it has been our pleasure to welcome thousands of travellers to Micato’s Africa. And we take great joy in reading the letters we receive from so many from them after they return.

Below are some of our recent favourites—we’ve pulled out a quote from each, but you can click the red text to read the letter. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we have.


Dear Dennis,

Last week we ended the 14 days Grand Safari… Truly an unforgettable experience and now we know why Micato has been voted as the world’s best safari outfitter….

We rave about the personal attention and the small touches we had from your staff…. You are truly the best!

Mr. Pinto:

We are writing to thank Micato for the incredible safari that we took with your company in Tanzania earlier this morning… Everything from the program plan to the accommodations to the drivers was just perfect… It was truly the trip of a lifetime, and well exceeded our expectations. We had so much fun!

We would especially like to recognize the efforts of our guide, Charles Mgangouma, for making our trip so memorable. His knowledge of the animals and culture was extraordinary and his enthusiasm for the subjects was remarkable….. We consider ourselves honored to be able to be in his care during our trip.

Thank you again for a fantastic vacation.

Dear Mr. Pinto,

Recently, we returned home from our “trip of a lifetime.” The trip was first class all the way… Nazeem in Capetown, Sean in Johannesburg and Heather in Livingstone were not only extremely professional, but high in character and resourcefulness….

As in any organization, it is the caliber of people working within that determine the success of the venture. You are indeed fortunate to have Nazeem, Sean and Heather.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Pinto,

I can’t thank you enough for all you did to make our trip to Africa so special and memorable.

Every detail was considered… Everything ran like clockwork—it was perfect!... Micato is, indeed, the “world’s best tour operator and safari outfitter,” and none of us will ever forget this amazing experience. Your professionalism and attention to detail is commendable, and we deeply appreciated everything you did to make this trip so special for us. Thank you!

Dear Jane and Felix,

From the moment we were met at the airport, to the moment we left for our return flight to JFK, we were surrounded by the most caring, well informed totally organized group of people….

Traveling with active five year olds could have been a real challenge for most people, but [Micato Safari Director] Lewela treated the twins as his own, and could often be seen with one of them on his shoulders. Nothing was impossible for this man… he is an incredible human being!

And special thanks to you for being such gracious hosts to our family…. We all feel that at least once in a lifetime, everyone should travel to Africa with Micato Safaris – What a better world this would be!

Dear Dennis,

We just returned from the trip of a lifetime and are still searching for words to express our joy and amazement. When we first planned this trip, we did extensive research. It became quite obvious through media and friends that Micato Safaris was the right choice….

We could not believe as we got closer to our travel dates that despite only two of us on the safari, the trip was not cancelled. We could not imagine that Micato would do all the planning, executing, etc. for only two people. Again for us, this reinforced what a special company this is….

We were pampered, protected and every need met until we boarded the flight back home. We literally cannot think of a single thing we could suggest to make the entire trip better….

In closing, we would like to share a phrase we learn in Swahili:

Moyo wangu umerizika

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this beautiful and life-changing vacation.

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!

Hello Friends:
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!

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 Mr. Pinto,

Our sincere thanks for the wonderful safari we recently took to Tanzania. Ms. Diana Meehan in New York was extraordinary, from helping us initially plan the safari, to making many last-minute changes. She did all of this over Easter weekend - and never once complained….

All of our ground team in Kenya and Tanzania were top-notch. I have read that everyone thinks their driver and guide is the best in all of Africa - and I too join in that opinion. Babu and Emanuel, and our guide Wilbard, became like family to us….

Micato readily deserves it great rating as the best safari company in the world. I only hope others will listen and use your company…. We plan on using you and your team again in the future. Our sincerest thanks to you and your wonderful team.

Sincerely,
