Micato Musings

Greetings from Micato’s Africa!

The Pintos (from left): Dennis, Joy, Felix, Jane, Sasha, and Tristan

Hello Friends,

Travelling as always with children Sasha and Tristan in tow, we have touched down in Nairobi.

Our annual summer migration from New York City to Africa is officially underway. Following tradition, we will join the elder Pintos for a month-long, three-generation safari, exploring all the delightful corners of Kenya and Rwanda.

Over the coming weeks we invite you to visit this blog, where we’ll post highlights and discoveries from our travels, including photos of magnificent vistas and creatures that never fail to take our breath away, no matter how often we visit.

We sincerely hope you enjoy these dispatches from Micato’s Africa.

With warm regards,

Dennis and Joy Pinto

    I see you are planning to go to Rwanda. I hope you are planning to doing a gorilla tracking? The trip Chuck and I took last summer with Micato was so beautiful. I remember, I think that you had not been on a gorilla tracking? Wonderful travels, thank you for sharing your trip.

    We would enjoy receiving dispatches from Micato’s Africa. We very much enjoyed our time in Kenya and Tanzania. Also Kennedy was the best. Very attentive, his expertise and that of all the the drivers was very impressive and appreciated.

    ah… you fortunate ones!
    I seat in my Newport Beach office typing honeymoon suggestions for a bride & groom who wish to go on Safari
    and the winelands in South Afrika.
    I of course suggest only the best-and say nothing but wonderful things of Micato –
    Price point ok – so we hope to book soon.
    Carry on and DO continue to share the beauty of Afrika-
