"The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa.........for he has so much to look forward to"
|June 2015 - Amazing experience - went above and beyond our expectations!
I contacted a few companies regarding a safari in Medikwe for myself and my husband - first time safari goers. Kerry from Pembury stood out from the start with her helpful attitude and clear explanations. From start to finish she organised everything and it was incredibly smooth, not one glitch and everything exceeded our expectations. We hope to return to Africa and will most certainly be asking Kerry to organise our next trip. Interestingly, the price we paid was extremely competitive and in some cases significantly cheaper than I could have booked myself through discount booking sites - they obviously have some great contacts!

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!
