Special Interest Safaris
A Custom birding safari? We’ve done many (after all, East and Southern Africa are a birder’s nirvana). Fly fishing on the slopes of Mount Kenya? No problem. Whale watching by land, boat, and plane? Photographic and video safaris? Joining a member of the famed Leakey family on a dig in Northern Kenya? Mountain biking? We’re ready to construct a safari around just about any special interest or fancy.
Because: We like and do these things ourselves, we know who the experts are, and because, as Forbes says, one of Micato’s “biggest assets is a cadre of highly trained, multi-lingual, expert safari guides, drivers, and trackers,” unlike, Forbes goes on, “many tour operators, especially safari companies [who] are essentially booking agents, turning over actual operation to local companies, who handle the ground transportation and guiding. Not Micato.”
Micato is undoubtedly the finest safari company I have ever been involved with for any of my film shoots in Africa. The organization and friendliness are outstanding, and the Pinto family’s involvement and obvious love distinguish them further.
