Outstanding service from beginning to end

The itinerary Pembury Tours put together for us met our wishes perfectly. The itinerary was displayed in a document with descriptions and images so we could get excited long before we even travelled. All arrangements all went smoothly throughout our three week trip which was lovely long time to explore the Cape Province. We stayed in wonderful accommodation that all had that bit of a wow factor and in amazing settings and the recommendations on what to go and see along with our own research made sure that we could enjoy every day to the full. Nice feeling too that someone knows where you are when you are on the other side of the globe. Pembury Tours come highly recommended for their knowledge and service.

Tranks to Kerry we had a lovely honeymoon! We started in Cape Town and continued via the Garden Route to Port Elisabeth and Lalibela, which was the most perfect place. The tented camp was beautiful (the number of people that can stay there fits into one (!) safari vehicle) food was excellent and the service perfect. On the game drives we saw lots of free roaming animals including lions with cups, rhinos, elephants and many more. All the other places we stayed at during our travels were beautiful and unique. The Segway tour in Tsitsikama and a mountain bike tour in Knysna completed our trip perfectly.
Thanks a lot to Kerry and Pemboury tours!

Pembury helped to make our South African holiday one of the best we have ever had.

My wife and I wanted to visit South Africa. We had a rough plan of the things we wanted to do and the places we wanted to see. We decided to centre our holiday around a 4 day visit to Lalibela Game Reserve. Having contacted them, they put us in touch with Kerry Ririe at Pembury Tours and she took over the arrangements from us. We planned to start in Cape Town, drive the Garden Route, stopping at Swellendam and Knysna en route to Lalibela, then returning to Cape Town inland, via Graaff Reinet, Oudtshoorn and Montagu. Kerry sorted out our hire car, all of our accommodation and a number of outings.

She dealt with the arrangements quickly and very efficiently. The places she suggested for us to stay were all excellent and she took on the whole burden of booking, leaving us to enjoy the anticipation of the holiday without any of the worries.

From the time of our arrival at Cape Town airport, where we were met by a Pembury representative, handed a comprehensive itinerary and ferried to our hire car, to the time we returned there and handed the car back three weeks later, every one of the arrangements Kerry had made for us worked like clockwork. We were particularly impressed by the paperwork, which had detailed driving directions and route maps, lots of brochures and ideas for things we might like to visit en route, a number of discount vouchers for various attractions and vouchers for free dinners at two of the places where we were to stay.

Our particular favourite places were Lalibela Game reserve and the little town of Montagu, but we enjoyed everywhere we went and were always greeted with friendship and kindness. Our time at Lalibela was particularly special. The highlights were, of course, the morning and evening game drives. We were able to get up close to 3 month old lion cubs, many different antelope, elephants, giraffes, and, in my case, warthogs! Our ranger, Cleo, was a mine of information about all of the wildlife, and added immeasurably to the experience.

Without the help of Pembury we should probably have still had a good holiday, but their assistance made it really special! We have used a number of large British travel agents over the years, but none of them provided as good a service as we experienced with Pembury.

Pembury Tours made our vacation trip seamless and fun

We had questioned renting a car in Cape Town to tour the game farms in Port Elizabeth area. After extremely helpful communications with Kerry at Pembury tours we chose to fly from Cpt. To P.E. Where we were cheerfully greeted by Willie who took us to Lalibella Game farm then picked us up there and took us to Ado National Elephant Park. We spent two nights at each location. The stays were wonderful and our travels with Willie included informative and entertaining discussion. The guide at Lalibella was a young fellow named Juan. He was amazing and bubbled with enthusiasm. He could make the vegetation as exciting as the wildlife. In the long run the cost of flying and being escorted was similar to renting a vehicle but gave two extra days to enjoy. We travelled with another couple and they too thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Incredible attention to detail!

We had the most AMAZING time in South Africa - it is such a beautiful country and we'll definitely be returning one day!

We must say a huge thank you to Pembury Tours for our wonderful itinerary - we really felt like we saw a lot and got a true flavour for the country and the regions we visited. The handbook we were given became our bible throughout our stay and we'd have been so stuck without your directions.

All of our accommodation was lovely, we couldn't have asked for any more. The safari was the absolute highlight!
