The Hemingway Wing Safari

The Hemingway Wing Safari
Explore Old Africa in Style

Such is Africa's allure: that a bright fellow like Hemingway would lie in his tent, homesick before he'd even parted from a place that had come to seem more like home than home itself. We're told these days to stick to the now, and the here, but Hemingway-like many of us lovers of Africa-knew that sometimes you can't micromanage your passions. The Hemingway Wing Safari-a cherished favourite of Micato staff-is a tribute, not only to Africa's tendency to grab hold of our hearts, but also to the old-fashioned and cozy safaris of Hemingway's time, with three tented camps (a little more luxurious than in Ernest's day, but he was never one to avoid intelligently offered luxury), good looks at East Africa's most legendary game parks (and a couple of lesser-known gems), and five swooping flights that bring us into great intimacy with Africa's landscapes.

Safari Highlights

  • The remote and dramatic northern Samburu region, home to unique species like Grevy’s zebra, Somali ostrich, gerenuk, beisa oryx, and reticulated giraffe.
  • A glimpse into the daily life of the nomadic Samburu or Maasai warrior clans, with special invitations to meet with tribal leaders for a discussion about rituals and ancient customs.
  • Meet and dine with Micato’s founders, Jane and Felix Pinto.
  • Walking in the bush with Maasai warriors, horsebacking in a Tanzanian coffee estate, biking in the Ngorongoro Highlands.
  • Service, info, and good cheer from your Micato Safari Director from start to finish; round-the-clock access to our unique Concierge Service.

Options & 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.

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.

Lend a Helping Hand
Every Micato traveller is given the opportunity to change the course of a life with our many luxury safari options. 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.
 
Zanzibar
Zanzibar. Its 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.

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.
