"We cannot thank you enough for your input in planning our trip as well as for the fact that everything went so well according to plan..."

~ Cath & Stephen Whitebush, La Joya, California

Kerry was spot-on in her recomendations and tips. This was our first trip to Africa and there is nothing that we would do differently...

~ Jim & Carol Embury, Boston, USA

Our trip to Botswana and Vistoria Falls lived up to our every expectation. And some!  Like you said, nothing can prepare one for the awesomness of Africa at its best.  You can be very proud of Pembury Tours Susan - we will be recommending Pembury to everyone who will listen.

~ Tony and Gaynor, United Kingdom

A quick email to thank you for the organisation of what one of the most interesting and enjoyable holidays we have ever experienced. A beautiful and interesting country with stunning countryside which we were fortunate to enjoy in spring time. We did a lot of walking in the countryside so the season added to the delight of these walks. All of the accommodation was good. Very special were the Braeside, Tanagra and Moontide which combine style, quirkiness, views and hospitality to the best but we also much enjoyed all of the other accommodation too where we always got a very warm welcome.

~ Christine & Matt Neal, UK

Thanks to Kerry we had a lovely honeymoon! We started in Cape Town and continued via the Garden Route to Port Elisabeth and Lalibela, which was the most perfect place. The tented camp was beautiful (the number of people that can stay there fits into one (!) safari vehicle) food was excellent and the service perfect. On the game drives we saw lots of free roaming animals including lions with cups, rhinos, elephants and many more. All the other places we stayed at during our travels were beautiful and unique. The Segway tour in Tsitsikama and a mountain bike tour in Knysna completed our trip perfectly.
Thanks a lot to Kerry and Pemboury tours!

~ Esther Wienke, Switzerland

My wife and I wanted to visit South Africa. We had a rough plan of the things we wanted to do and the places we wanted to see. We decided to centre our holiday around a 4 day visit to Lalibela Game Reserve. Having contacted them, they put us in touch with Kerry Ririe at Pembury Tours and she took over the arrangements from us. We planned to start in Cape Town, drive the Garden Route, stopping at Swellendam and Knysna en route to Lalibela, then returning to Cape Town inland, via Graaff Reinet, Oudtshoorn and Montagu. Kerry sorted out our hire car, all of our accommodation and a number of outings.

She dealt with the arrangements quickly and very efficiently. The places she suggested for us to stay were all excellent and she took on the whole burden of booking, leaving us to enjoy the anticipation of the holiday without any of the worries.

From the time of our arrival at Cape Town airport, where we were met by a Pembury representative, handed a comprehensive itinerary and ferried to our hire car, to the time we returned there and handed the car back three weeks later, every one of the arrangements Kerry had made for us worked like clockwork. We were particularly impressed by the paperwork, which had detailed driving directions and route maps, lots of brochures and ideas for things we might like to visit en route, a number of discount vouchers for various attractions and vouchers for free dinners at two of the places where we were to stay.

Our particular favourite places were Lalibela Game reserve and the little town of Montagu, but we enjoyed everywhere we went and were always greeted with friendship and kindness. Our time at Lalibela was particularly special. The highlights were, of course, the morning and evening game drives. We were able to get up close to 3 month old lion cubs, many different antelope, elephants, giraffes, and, in my case, warthogs! Our ranger, Cleo, was a mine of information about all of the wildlife, and added immeasurably to the experience.

Without the help of Pembury we should probably have still had a good holiday, but their assistance made it really special! We have used a number of large British travel agents over the years, but none of them provided as good a service as we experienced with Pembury.

~ John Howell, United Kingdom

From the start Kerry was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We gave her a brief outline of what we wanted to do - 4 days in Cape Town and 2 nights in a game reserve with some stop overs on the Garden Route there and back. She arranged our car hire and knowing this she proposed places for us to visit and sent us a detailed suggested itinerary. Our stay at Camps Bay at the Primi Royal proved to be an ideal location with easy access to Table mountain, V & A waterfront and Cape Town itself. Our stay at the Milkwood Manor at Plettenberg Bay was first rate and from there we went onto Shamwari. Wow - what a place to stay - excellent safari guide who was a pleasure to be with for the 4 game drives. Back to Knysna for an overnight stop and then Stellenbosch for a whole day and then flight back from Cape Town at 10.40 pm. Overall a great experience made stress free by Kerry's superb organisation.

~ Jayne and Michael, United Kingdom

Second time using Pembury Tours and Susan Pattison-Wait for our travel through SA. Very professional in our dealings and Susan's personal touch and suggestions was much appreciated. The agenda / recommendations and process all met and in many cases exceeded expectations. Would not hesitate to work with Susan again and have recommended friends to as well.
