|April 2015 - Excellent Customised Tour by Brilliant Travel Consultant
We had never used a travel agent before, as I always conduct the research and make the bookings. While researching Cape Town, Safari & Vic Falls I found a Pembury Tour that visited all 3, so sent an enquiry. Received an almost immediate reply that a travel consultant would contact us directly.
Kerry Kirie contacted us, working to develop a customised itinerary.Extremely satisfied with the service, we contacted 2 others for similar quotes, but Kerry's level of service was vastly superior to the others, so we went with Pembury.The level of detail included in the planning is exceptional, which resulted in the entire tour taking place without a hitch. Kerry provides a detailed itinerary by email and then delivers a detailed package at the initial airport pick-up. The package incudes vouchers for all services - hotels, tours, transport, etc should there be any conflict over whether it is pre-paid. We never required any of the vouchers. She also included an excellent booklet she compiled providing information on our various stops. This was invaluable and was well used.
All transports arrived on time, all vehicles were reasonably new and drivers were very safe, considerate and informative. With the exception of the Royal Livingstone, all hotel were good to exceptional.
Kerry and Pembury also encourage feedback and take said feedback seriously to improve their level of service to future customers. Andy & Judi - Canada
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!
