The Micato Photo Contest - The Best of 2011

Snapping the perfect photo on safari has a lot to do with being in the right place at the right time.  And while Micato can take credit for getting you there, many of our guests evidently have a knack for knowing precisely when to raise their cameras, and how to frame a fabulous photo.  Plenty of stunning images were submitted in 2011 and we're thrilled to announce the winners.

Congratulations to our Gold Winner, Jenna Levantin, who will receive a $3,000 credit toward a future safari.  Susan Van Manen, our silver winner, will receive $1,000 to credit toward a safari or the Micato Safari Shop.  The bronze goes to Bruce Fryxell who will receive a $500 credit towards a safari or the shop.

Spying a leopard on safari is always a thrill, but capturing one in mid-leap is no easy feat.  Our winner not only caught this spectacular moment, but a whole series of the cat bounding down the tree trunk.  Taken on a Heart of Kenya & Tanzania safari, another remarkable aspect of this shot is that the photographer is just 14 years old.
