The One&Only Resort is one of the most luxurious addresses on the exclusive Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Here, the dedicated butlers discreetly attend to your every need. Epicures savor the legendary cuisine of Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa and the 6,000 vintages at the Wine Loft. The accommodation is a fetching fusion of modern glamor and classic South African style. The One&Only is more than a place to stay; it is a destination in itself.
The Sabi Sabi Game Reserve’s Bush Lodge is a polished but homey African jewel. The air-conditioned, magniﬁcently appointed thatched-roof suites, which decorated with ﬁne original African art, offer unendingly interesting views of the bush and a popular water hole including the Big Five.
This boutique hotel, which was once a manse, is located in Johannesburg’s tree-lined suburb of Sandhurst. It reflects African design through its use of tribal textiles, natural textures, and hardwoods. The property is well known for the expansive pool, gardens and koi pond.
The camp is situated on the banks of the eastern Selinda Spillway in northern Botswana’s 320,000-acre Selinda Reserve. The camp has been thoughtfully designed with the elements in mind. The large raised decks afford you the opportunity to view the endless floodplains and accompanying wildlife.
Day 1 will be spent for your arrival in South Africa.
On your first day, you’ll pay a visit to Rosie’s Kitchen in Khayelitsha Township for a close look as Rosie helps feed the township’s destitute kids and elders. You’ll meet Golden, a beloved artisan who enlists kids to collect discarded tin cans, from which he creates stunning, keepsake “flowers.” You will take the cable car to the top of Table Mountain, which is six times older than the Himalaya and so strikingly flat because it was overlaid long ago by an ice sheet.
In the evening, you’ll dine in the home of Micato’s Capetonian friends and hosts, great purveyors of welcome and lore. You’ll take a full-day tour of the Cape Peninsula, including a trip to the Flying Dutchman Funicular to the tip of dramatic Cape Point, where you’ll look out at the great waters of the Atlantic tussling with the equally insistent waters of the Indian Ocean.
You’ll visit the Cape penguins in their daily rounds, ramble in Victorian-flavoured Simon’s Town, and at dinner, you’ll be treated to thrilling South African interactive drumming, which must be seen and heard to be believed. And you’ll revel in a full day ramble in the Cape Winelands, visiting wineries like third-generation Fairview and the four generation Kanonkop Wine Estate, visiting shiny little Dutch-heritage towns like Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and have lunch at the toweringly regarded Delaire Graff Estate Restaurant.
A morning flight will take you to two nights stay at Bush Lodge, flagship of the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve, a gleaming African gem. It is popular with the reserve’s non-human residents, which include the Big Five, 350 bird species, and other notable species. Sabi Sabi is linked to nearby Kruger National Park by a well-trod game corridor. As it has been known, the game viewing in Sabi Sabi is superb, and its guided game drives are Southern Africa’s most appealing attraction.
After a morning game drive, you will fly by charter aircraft to Johannesburg, arriving in the early afternoon. Your stored bags will await you in the Saxon Hotel.
You will fly from Joburg to Maun, Botswana, and then into the Delta for three nights at Selinda Camp.
After a last foray into the Delta and a brunch at Selinda, you will fly by charter to Maun. You will stay in the InterContinental at Johannesburg’s airport, where you can rest and refresh before flying home.
The safari takes place in Cape Town, Sabi Sabi Game Reserve, Johannesburg in South Africa, and Okavango Delta in Botswana.
From the moment you arrive, your meals are included and each is a delight. The lodges offer continental cuisine, in addition to local specialties to appeal to a wide range of palates. South African specialties are derived from Indonesian cuisine with mildly spicy Malay dishes popular around Cape Town. The meats, vegetables, and fruits served for you are fresh from the surrounding area’s rich farmlands. It is guaranteed that all food served on a Micato safari is of the highest quality.

"When I first thought about taking our groups to Africa, I was told by people I respect that I should deal only with Micato Safaris. I was told not only that they were the best, but also that they were unique in their ability to transfer the warmth of their operation to everyone you touch. And I must say that even my very high expectations were exceeded in every way!"

"Whatever was promised in the brochure was far surpassed in our actual experiences. There is no way we can sufficiently praise the safari director and drivers - far and away the most knowledgeable, intelligent, and caring we have ever encountered."
