Back in 1966, Felix Pinto, a ranking member of the ex-British Kenyan government, started a luxury safari company. He also dabbled in gentleman farming on the family’s rambling acreage outside Nairobi, which was even profiled in the prestigious American edition of Geo magazine. Micato’s private safaris ultimately prevailed over farming and forty-five years and a Stanford, Harvard and Stanford Business School graduation later, the Pintos are joined by their (well educated!) children in the running of Micato Safaris. As it has always been, Micato is more than just a business—it is a labor of love.
Micato aims to amaze with gracious service, superb lodges, astute and gregarious guides, but mostly with Africa, their home continent. You’ll be in awe over Africa’s vaunting and serene landscapes, with its kind and alert people, and of course, with its astounding cast of animal characters, nowhere else to be seen.
Did you know? For every safari sold, Micato Safaris sends a child to school. Just another reason to travel with the only tour company voted #1 World’s Best Safari Outfitter by Travel+Leisure a record nine times.
