September 2015 - Pembury created a trip of a lifetime. Far exceeded our expectations. After researching more than 60 ‘safari’ planning companies, I selected Pembury. Pembury was the most apt to design a trip ‘just the way I wanted it’ and within my budget.Pembury’s impeccable service and attention to detail will make us repeat customers. I am a seasoned travel and due to my experience with Pembury, I will always recommend Gail and the entire team as they work magic! Guthiel Family, USA
I worked with Gail in planning this ‘trip of a lifetime’ for my family and she far exceeded our expectations. Gail was thorough, knowledgeable, responsive, and flexible.
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!
