More than 30 years ago, Micato Safaris established its award-winning nonprofit arm, Micato-AmericaShare, which has made a significant difference in the lives of impoverished African families by sending thousands of their children to school and providing sustained community outreach. Among the initiatives that most directly involves travelers is The Micato One for One Commitment: for every safari sold, Micato Safaris sends an African child to school. Just by virtue of traveling with the company, a safari guest changes a life.
Another life-changing experience for many Micato travelers is time spent at the Micato-AmericaShare Harambee Community Centre in Nairobi. It offers travelers a first-hand look at how the company is making a difference in the community. Guests will discover a state-of-the-art lending library, computer center, special needs classroom, and basketball court among the resources here and, perhaps most enriching, will talk and laugh with some of the remarkable children helped by these programs. A visit to the Harambee Centre is included on several Micato scheduled departures, including The Stanley Wing Safari, a 16-day journey through East Africa with luxuriously long stays in and around top game reserves.
After more than 50 years in the safari business, Micato has learned this about Africa – people come to see the animals but leave in love with the people. So as the holidays roll around, consider suggesting to your clients that a Micato safari is the gift that keeps on giving. Clients are left with indelible memories and the satisfaction of knowing that their safari – through Micato-AmericaShare’s educational and community outreach – is helping to give a better life to children in Africa.
