amazing trip to Cape Town, Sabi Sands game reserve, Victoria Falls and Chobe
5/5

I reached out to Pembury Tours more than a year ago because of the great reviews in Safari bookings. It truly didn’t disappoint me and my 7 friends who wanted to celebrate our 50th birthday in Africa.

Shout out to Anya, our travel consultant, who did an excellent job in creating our itinerary based on our budget, activities we wanted to do and things we wanted to see. We chose Cape Town, Sabi Sands, Vic Falls and Chobe to celebrate our milestone. Anya was prompt to reply to our emails and was very detailed on the description of this tour.

We just returned from our trip 2 weeks trip and all of us think this is an EPIC journey that is difficult to top. This trip truly exceeded our expectations. All the accommodations were excellent. Food in these lodges were delicious. We stayed at Winchester Mansions in Cape Town, Idube game reserve in Sabi Sands, Nutgrove Manor in White river , Ilala Lodge in Victoria Falls and Cresta Mowana in Chobe. All the tour guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating to all our requests.

We are truly happy and satisfied with this trip and we would like to thank Anya for making our 50th birthday celebration a very memorable one. We look forward to more trips with Pembury Tours in the future.

Excellent travel agent
5/5

This was our first family trip to South Africa and we were looking for a customized and exciting itinerary. Anya from Pembury Tours worked diligently and professionally to arrange such a unique travel experience. She's a smart, flexible and efficient consultant that provided good advices and services. She planned all the trip perfectly, with effective transfer service, perfect timing, complete travel documents, and all those little extras that make your trip easier and more enjoyable.
We stayed 4 days at andBeyond Ngala safari Lodge, a luxury private game lodge with suite-bungalows, located in the Timbavati nature reserve and 3 days at Arathusa Safari Lodge in Sabi Sands game reserve, one of the best game viewing destination (leopard on hunt, wild animals walking next to your room). In both reserves, we saw many lions, leopards, hyenas, wild dogs, elephants, crocodile, rhino, hippo, giraffe, zebras, monkeys, eagles and myriad of colored birds, and of course thousands of impala… It was an absolutely fantastic and memorable experience.
Lastly, we left the Greater Kruger National Park for Cape Town. We stayed three nights at the Commodore, a luxury well located hotel. Michael, our qualified and friendly tour guide, drove us in his comfortable car around the Cape peninsula: Boulder’s Beach, Cape Point, Cape of Good Will, Kirstenbosch and the Constantia Winelands.
We highly recommend Anya from Pembury tours. Everything was perfect, with zero bad surprise.

One month in Africa
5/5

Pembury Tours organized a 3 1/2 week trip for us through South Africa, Victoria Falls and Kenya. Their itinerary and choice of hotels/lodges was excellent! Our travel consultant Tammy Harding was exceptionally prompt and thorough in all the pre-trip planning and correspondence with many helpful tips and suggestions. The trip was a combination of hotel stays with free time to explore, private sightseeing tours in Cape Town and the surrounding area, stays at various game lodges and an 11 day private tour throughout Kenya with a vehicle and driver. The planning and execution was flawless. We saw and did everything we wanted and more. We would highly recommend Tammy and Pembury Tours!!

Great trip made even better by Pembury Tours!
5/5

We worked with Tammy to plan our honeymoon in September 2019 and could not have had a better experience. Tammy was incredibly responsive and organized and made planning a breeze; she suggested hotels, activities and flights. We had the best time and it was so nice to not worry about any of the details because Tammy handled everything! I would definitely recommend Pembury Tours and Tammy to anyone looking to book a trip.

5/5

Kerry helped us create an itinerary to Masai Mara safaris & Gorilla trekking in Rwanda. Despite multiple rounds of itinerary changes from our side, she was very flexible and helpful in providing information as well as details we need for our trip.

Our trip was amazing and we really enjoyed our time in Kenya & Rwanda. Will definitely come back to Pembury for our next trip in Africa.

Absolutely Amazing!
5/5

I booked this trip through Pembury Tours working with Tammy Harding - what an amazing travel agent! She was recommended to me by a friend who had booked his trip with her and he was thoroughly impressed. I had the same experience! She got everything organized for me - flights, lodge, type of room and, activities; she responded to emails within a day and was quick to take action when required. The lodge, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, provided a room with a view of the watering hole, it was clean and well equipped; the service was excellent as was the food. The Sunset Cruise was relaxing, provided great views and the boat would come close to land so we could see the animals. The guided tour of Victoria Falls was excellent with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. The game drive safari experience was exciting..the driver didn't just stay on the main trail but went off-road so we could see the animals up close - a longer arm would have enabled me to touch some of them. I really enjoyed my time in Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls.

Tammy at Pembury arranged our flights and activities at Victoria Falls, including a game drive. It was excellent. Went to Stanley Livingstone National Park and were so close to the animals that it felt you could reach out and touch them. Exciting.

5/5

Even with the time difference (I'm from the USA) Heidi responded in a timely manner to all of our emails. Each accommodation Heidi chose for us blew our mind in how great the service was, not to mention beautiful! We had many transfers for all of the difference locations we visited, everything went to smoothly and was right on time. I cannot say enough good things about Heidi and this booking company. Would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.

Perfection
5/5

If you are planning a trip to Africa, please don't hesitate to book with Tammy at Pembury Tours, South Africa. My husband and I normally plan all our trips online, but hesitated with Africa. I tried a couple of Tour groups in Australia, but found response too slow and uninformative. I decided to try Tammy and I am so glad I did! She responded to my emails with information required immediately.We wanted 5 Star all the way and Tammy helped make it happen. All transfers were on time and NOTHING went wrong for the entire trip. We traveled to Cape Town, Franschhoek, Sabi Sands,on Rovos Rail from Pretoria to Victoria Falls, and then a couple of nights on Chobe River (Zambezi Queen) We would love to return, but if not,we will have very special memories of Africa, and part of that is thanks to Tammy at Pembury Tours.!

5/5

I had really high expectations for this trip. Pembury Tours and our travel consultant Anya made it all happen. The communication, information, and guidance in planning the perfect trip was outstanding. They responded quickly and expertly to every question or request we had before, during and after the trip. We visited South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe over two weeks. Every detail was thought out by Anya, and it all went smoothly and perfectly. I would not use anyone else to plan my next trip to Southern Africa. i recommend them unquestionably. Their knowledge of safari camps, city hotels, weather, what to see and when, and on and on was very valuable.
