Photo Contest

Whether your safari or India journey was last year or ten years ago, submit your favourite photos to the Micato Photo Contest.

Your most cherished photo from your Micato adventure could win you travel gear… and even help pay your way back to Micato’s Africa or India!

Travellers can submit photos in four separate categories:



Safari selfies, intriguing India shopkeepers, and, especially, shots of your family or friends that leave absolutely no doubt about where in the world you are!


The African bush, the shadow of the Taj Mahal, the lush mountains of Rwanda. As with our People category, a photo that could not have been taken anywhere but Africa or India increases your chances!


You know what to do here. Of your hundreds of snaps of big cats, great herds or wee birds, which photo do you know in your heart is your best?

“Only Micato” Moments

An “Only Micato” Moment is just that, a photograph of something so uniquely Micato — you and your Micato Safari Director or India Tour Guide impishly smiling, your epic sundowner cocktail spread in the Maasai Mara, a landscape shot snapped at dawn or dusk that takes the breath away… you’ll know this one when you see it!

What You Can Win

At the end of the year, three top winners will be awarded a cash prize and a credit that can be used towards a Micato African Safari or India Journey. The credit also may be applied to purchases in the Micato Safari Shop.

Grand Prize: $2,500 cash and $3,000 credit
Second Prize: $1,500 cash and $2,000 credit
Third Prize: $1,000 cash and $1,000 credit

An additional nine honorable mentions will be awarded a $250 gift card from Micato Safaris.


Submit as many photos as you’d like each month. Judging will be conducted by a panel of qualified photographers, travel professionals and expert safari hands.
