Dispatch #1: Greetings from Micato’s Africa!


The Pintos (from left): Dennis, Joy, Felix, Jane, Sasha, and Tristan at the Vumbura Plains Camp in Botswana's Okavango Delta


Our annual summer migration brought us some 7,960 miles from New York City to join up with Felix and Jane in Johannesburg, where we relaxed and regrouped before embarking on a month-long sojourn to Namibia and Botswana. Despite our best intentions to unplug the family, we were deeply inspired by our South Africa discoveries – as we always are on safari – and couldn’t resist sharing a few favourite moments with you.

Micato’s Africa never fails to take our breath away, no matter how often we visit.  We hope you’ll enjoy these dispatches.

Dennis and Joy Pinto

    I’m VERY tardy in sending this message but nonetheless – what a fabulous “travelog.” It makes me want to pack my bags and fly to Namibia and Botswana.

    Wishing the Pinto family our very best and many thanks for sharing this wonderful experience.

    Warm regards,

    Kathy and Paul Bissinger
