"The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa.........for he has so much to look forward to"
March 2016 - My wife and I have made a downpayment on a tour planned thru Anya with Pembury . I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it is working with Anya. We have traveled much of the world and have planned our trips ourselves without tour agencies. We were a little apprehensive planning a trip to Africa on our own with all the unknowns and our lack of knowledge. So we found your company on the internet and sent a request for information and your response was next day with Anya's follow up email. Anya, has from that very first contact taken all the apprehension out of our Africa trip with her recommendations and the immediate followup on all our many request. I am sure it has not been easy for her working with us since we go to daily Mass while we travel, but she has been perfect in planning our stays and activities around Mass locations and times. So with all that, we just wanted to let you know what a great job Anya has done for us. Half the fun of traveling for me is the planning stages of the trip and Anya has made that also enjoyable.

So you are thinking of coming to Africa or South Africa on safari. First time? Been before? Either way, we think it is a smart move on your part to visit Africa. Southern Africa is the cradle of humankind - so every single person living in the world today originates from Southern Africa. You will be coming "home"!
Africa is many things - it is exotic, exciting, wild, it offers a sense of the unknown, it never ceases to surprise, it is beautiful, the people are beautiful - on the outside but especially on the inside. When the "Africa bug" bites, it is a permanent thing - one has it for life and it is not uncommon for visitors to do many dozens of visits to Africa and not only for a safari.
But Africa is also complicated - things don't always work to schedule. Sometimes things don't work at all! A ferry might have a broken engine, a bridge might have collapsed or, horror of horrors, the internet connection might be down! Those who have been to Africa before will know this. But it is times like these when one experiences the real Africa - the humour & laughter at a broken down ferry, the ingenuity and "plans" that get made at a collapsed bridge, philosophical words uttered when phonelines or internet connections fail - words like "don't worry - tomorrow the sun will still rise".
Yes, you want to come to Africa - to tour, to see South Africa, Southern or East Africa, to go on safari, to experience Cape Town, to see the sights that this magical continent has to offer. And you will see them, spectacular as they are. But you will leave Africa with a heavy heart and a lump in your throat. Mere spectacular sights don't cause that - spectacular people do! It is the people of Africa, combined with the sights and the animals on safari, who make Africa the place it is.
Take time to go through our website, to learn about Pembury Tours......and hopefully allow us to share this continent of Africa with with you - this special place that we call home!
