May 2016 - Two-thumbs up!
It took me a while to find the right tour operator to assist in making my African safari dream come true. I am glad that I found Pembury Tours. They are prompt in responding to my first query and from then on everything was a breeze thanks to Tammy. Tammy put together an itinerary that met my budget and expectations. I had many questions of course, which Tammy answered patiently and promptly. Her patience and ability to come up with solutions to my queries were very much appreciated. When we were in Africa, Tammy was always there to respond to our queries - even on weekends! Her dedication and commitment in making sure that my friend and I had a pleasant trip is commendable. We had a magical and amazing time at the safari (Umlani Bush Camp) and Avani at Victoria Falls. An experience that will always have a special place in our heart.
Thank you Tammy and Pembury Tours for making our African dreams come true. When Africa ever calls again, I will be sure to be in touch with them to assist in planning my trip. Wati MT (Singapore)
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!
