South Africa Luxury Safaris

From the rare natural wonders of the Cape Floristic Region (the smallest of the world’s six recognized floristic kingdoms, or phytochorions) to the wineries and elegant Old Dutch-style hostelries of the Cape Winelands, from the urban pizazz of Cape Town to the fabulously but imaginatively luxurious lodges of the private, serene, wildlife-rich Sabi Sands and Singita concessions on the border of famed Kruger National Park, South Africa lives up to its unofficial motto, A World in One Country.


Micato has deep roots in South Africa, and our private Bespoke Safaris and guaranteed departure, small group Classic Safaris are creatively and expertly designed to show off the country’s grand diversity (which is nowhere better exampled than in Cape Town, one of our favourite places in Africa. Graced by what David Livingstone called a “beautiful table cloth of fleecy clouds” over monumental Table Mountain, Cape Town is still, as Sir Francis Drake described it in 1580, “the most stately thing and the fairest Cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth.”
