The Tanzania Spectacular Safari

The Tanzania Spectacular Safari
Exploring Exotic Wilds in Style

We bow to the fact: Many of us are firmly engaged in a very busy world, a world in which time away from the busyness is precious. And so we offer this safari to three major contributors to the East African mystique: the classic game lands of Tarangire, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the fabled Serengeti-all in a mere but marvelous 10 days. We begin with the sudden serenity of the Arusha Coffee Lodge, and then we're off on a carefully choreographed safari, with two nights in each of the three camps and lodges we've chosen for their warmth of spirit, their serenity, their location, their refreshing lack of busyness.

Safari Highlights

  • A succinct but comprehensive safari showcasing East Africa’s premier game viewing areas in less than two weeks: the vast Serengeti Plains, the rugged terrains of Tarangire, and the Edenic expanses of the Ngorongoro Crater.
  • Stylishly unique camps and lodges: treetop tents atop stately old baobab or marula trees; secluded and spacious tents overlooking the Grumeti River, thronged with galumphing hippos.
  • A host of activities: daily game drives; learning tracking from Maasai warriors, and an afternoon visit to their village; exhilarating night game drives; guided nature walks in the golden Serengeti.
  • Services of a Micato Safari Director and our 24/7 Micato Concierge from beginning to end of the safari.

Options and Extensions

Hot Air Balloon Safari
It is an effortless feeling usually reserved for dreams… natural, feather-light, exhilarating. There, looking out over a stunning landscape, from your peerless perch, in the calming silence of the African dawn… it’s hard to imagine it getting any better. And then, the star of the show—quite literally, in fact—pokes out from under its terrestrial cloak.

Lend a Helping Hand on Safari
Every Micato traveller is given the opportunity to change the course of a life. We invite guests to spend an extra day in Nairobi and visit one of our AmericaShare projects in the slums, learn of the challenges, meet the orphaned and vulnerable children and be inspirited to help.

Tracking Majestic Mountain Gorillas
The soft mists prevail here as they did when Dian Fossey wrote her legendary book Gorillas in the Mist. And the creatures that drew Dr. Fossey are the same ones which beckon to us: rare and endangered Mountain Gorillas.

Cape Town Sojourn
A beautiful mix of natural and man-made pleasures, Cape Town is Africa’s treasure for good reason. This perfect post-safari sojourn yields a winning blend of top city sights, sophisticated dining, luscious winelands, and more.

Zanzibar
Zanzibar. It’s perfumed air caresses travellers with scents of the spices that have grown in abundance throughout the island since time began. Exotic and enchanting, this Indian Ocean isle allures travellers with a personality and pace all its own—just a short hop from mainland Tanzania, but a world away. The name alone conjures a romantic daydream. Meandering streets are lined with whitewashed houses and reminders of Swahili influence; the air is redolent of the spices grown here for centuries. From the lush Jozani Forest to bustling Stone Town, Zanzibar is an island paradise ripe for exploration.

About Micato Safaris
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 labour of love.

The Experience
The thrilling jolt of discovery, the shared smiles of amazement. Connecting with nature, with new cultures… and with a timeless part of yourself. Such experiences are not always common… but in Africa, they are as regular as the rising Serengeti sun.

But this is more than just Africa—it’s Micato’s Africa. It’s an experience unlike any other, where you are a VIP everywhere you go. It is a blend of excitement and elegance, a place of delightful surprises and uncommon luxury. It is the home of Felix and Jane Pinto, who treat their guests, as Travel+Leisure noted, like “well-loved, out-of-town relatives.”

Whether you're looking for a classic safari, a private off-the-beaten path journey, or a personal exploration of Africa's tribal cultures and rituals, there is simply no experience like a Micato safari.
