Game Drives


On every safari your team includes not only your Safari Director but an equally well-credentialed Driver Guide. Two dynamic experts, keeping you safe and delighting you every step of the way, versus the solitary guide most companies send along.

  • Constantly cleaned vehicles. Our drivers and field staff ensure your vehicle is thoroughly sanitized between guest activities, such as sightseeing, game drives, and airport transfers.
  • Sensible seating. As always, seating in Micato safari vehicles is well-spaced, with each guest assured of a window-seat. And the Driver Guide and your Safari Director will, of course, be masked.
  • Private vehicles are available if you prefer. If you want your family or group to have a completely exclusive game drive experience, a private vehicle is available for a surcharge on every Classic Safari— and already included on our Private Classic and Custom safaris. Private Classic and Custom guests will also have a Safari Director all to themselves.
  • Sanitation Kits, constantly sanitized. Your Safari Directors and Driver-Guides travel with their own sanitation kits that include touch-free thermometers, spray bottles with cleaning solution, alcohol-based wipes, disposable cloths, and lens pens to ensure regular sanitation of vehicles in the bush. The kits themselves are sanitized between game drives.
  • Sanitized soft drinks and other beverages. Water bottles and other beverages – your safari vehicle is stocked with a variety of complimentary ones – are washed and sprayed with sanitizer before being placed in the cooler, as well as in between drives.
  • Binoculars crystal clear and clean.   We loan you a pair of high-quality Nikon binoculars at the start of the safari— thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between guests and left untouched for three days before reuse. Or you may use our supplies and wipe them down with sanitizer yourself before every use. (You are always welcome to bring and use your own binoculars.)
  • Sundowners:  Sublime as always, safe in all ways.  You’ll still enjoy exquisite sundowner cocktails at twilight on the savannahs and picnic lunches under ancient baobab trees — although we operate them a little differently than in the past. Each sundowner location is now limited to an even smaller and more intimate number of people. Chairs are spaced very safe distances apart and waitstaff wear face masks and gloves with minimal guest contact. Plus, sundowner snacks are individually wrapped for each guest.
