Planning a vacation can be a very intimidating venture without someone to guide you through the details and pitfalls. Planning an international vacation that includes an African safari is a whole other animal altogether (pun intended). 

Currently, Tanzania, Kenya, and South Africa are open and welcoming enthusiastic adventure travelers with open arms. These 3 countries are home to some of the best game reserves and safari experiences on the planet, and our American Express Preferred partner Micato Safaris are the premier guides to bring it to life for you and your family. 

We've had several of our team members experience safaris with Micato, click the links to read their blogs recapping their adventures.  


Kenya and Tanzania

Micato: The Heart of Kenya & Tanzania

Heart map

The names alone are magic: The Serengeti. Ngorongoro Crater. The Maasai Mara. We’re reminded that when you travel, you visit names as well as places—names with romantic heft, names that resound, names that may have captivated travelers for many years. Names like Ngorongoro

In less than two weeks, The Heart of Kenya and Tanzania introduces us—or re-introduces us—to places with famous names, but most of all, it brings us to fantastic places, fantastic in the sense that their like is to be found exactly nowhere else on earth.

Highlights

  • Focus on game activities in East Africa’s most bountiful wildlife areas, emphasizing big herds and their predators.
  • A visit to the Olduvai Gorge, where the Leakey family unearthed our ancestor, the 1.75 million year-old fossil Homo habilis.
  • Spectacular early evening sundowners, unscripted, familial visits in Maasai villages and dining in Nairobi with Micato’s founders, Jane and Felix Pinto.
  • Expert, unstinting service from your Micato Safari Director and our unique 24-hour Concierge Service.
  • Visit to AmericaShare’s soul-expanding Harambee Centre in Nairobi.

 


South Africa

Micato: Jewels of Southern Africa

The Jewels of Southern Africa Map

Micato honors many of Africa’s jewels on their safaris, and on this wonderfully eventful, under-two-week safari they present three especially radiant gems: sparkly Cape Town, gargantuan Victoria Falls, and the classically golden savannahs and lush forests of the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve, next to Kruger National Park.

You'll begin with four nights in Cape Town’s knockout One&Only, a resort of outsize luxury on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and a superb base for explorations in this most cosmopolitan of cities and its varied, magnificent environs. Then comes a splendid four nights in the bush at beautifully designed Tengile River Lodge, on a serene bend in the private Sabi Sand Game Reserve’s Sand River. You'll end with a perennial favourite, the famed Royal Livingstone, where mist from nearby Victoria Falls freshens the day.

Highlights

  • Four in-depth days in effervescent Cape Town, one-on-one meetings with local go-getters and experts, exhilarating visits to Table Mountain, the charmingly colourful Malay Quarter, an inspirational Micato-AmericaShare project, and the city’s many other shopping, historical, and human highpoints.
  • Encounters with, and oenophilic wisdom from elite vintners in the gorgeous Cape Winelands.
  • Touchdown-to-takeoff service from expert guides and facilitators and 24-hour backup by our Concierge Service.
  • Wildlife excursions by 4-wheel drive vehicles and on foot in the wonderfully isolated Sabi Sands private game reserve adjoining Kruger National Park, in 4-wheel drive vehicles and on expertly guided, deeply informative walking safaris.
  • Two days of awe-striking views and rainforest trail walking at the world’s most stupendous waterfall, Victoria Falls.
