The Hemingway Wing Safari

Camps & Lodges

Your accommodations on a Micato safari will be unabashedly luxurious—quite simply, you will stay at some of the best hotels, lodges and camps in Africa. And of course, you are a VIP everywhere you go with Micato, so preferential rooms will be provided throughout.


Norfolk Hotel

The essence of luxury since 1904, the Norfolk is the legendary hotel from which many safaris have embarked. The spirit of past adventurers such as Teddy Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway linger romantically in the air here, particularly on the Delamere Terrace where explorers and locals alike have gathered for drinks and safari tales for generations. And of course, the hotel features everything you’d expect from a world-class property: impeccably-appointed rooms, a health club with gym, sauna and steam room, beauty salon and book shop to name just a few. Renovated in 2004, the hotel combines the best of both worlds—modern elegance and old-world charm.


Larsens Tented Camp

Tranquil and luxurious, this camp enjoys uninterrupted views of the Uaso Nyiro River from the private verandas of every spacious and stylish guest tent. An evocative lounge and bar tent sets the mood—kitted out with explorer Eric Larsen’s original cabin trunks and pith helmets—and a dining tent serves sumptuous dinners by candlelight on tables resplendent with silver and fine china. The Tree House, overlooking the Samburu plains, is a delightful place to spend an afternoon with a good book or sipping a Pimms Cup at sundown.


Mara Safari Club

Brilliantly renovated, the Mara Safari Club by Fairmont Hotels is the newest jewel in the Mara. Magnificent tents feature lush appointments, four-poster beds and private verandas overlooking hippos bobbing and snorting in the river below. The main lodge is Africa at its most elegant with stunning artwork, tapestries and dramatic architecture. A large deck on the exterior follows the curve of the river, creating enchanting seating areas with superb river views. A swimming pool provides additional relaxation.


Migration Camp

Set alluringly on a kopje overlooking the rolling Serengeti hills, Migration Camp is a haven of sumptuous indulgence among the raw splendour of the surrounding bush. Spacious tents are superbly secluded and blend into their natural environment above the Grumeti River. Richly furnished throughout, the camp exudes a decadence reminiscent of the Africa of yore.

The Manor Ngorongoro

Set within a 1500-acre Arabica coffee estate adjacent to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, The Manor at Ngorongoro is a a marvelous retreat whose luxe cottages -- intelligently-situated throughout the property for maximum privacy -- are all kitted out with contemporary decor and open fireplaces. Proximity to the Crater is certainly a plus, so game drives may range from the traditional by-vehicle kind to mountain biking to a leisurely safari by horseback. Picturesque sundowners easily cap the day, as might a swim in the Manor's pool or a deep-tissue massage at the well-regarded spa.
