Budget Friendly Safari Adventure – 4 nights Cape Town | 3 nights Balule | 1 night Hazyview | 2 nights Victoria Falls
Perfect trip! Beyond expectations and on budget! So glad that I found Pembury Tours on Safari Bookings. Planning a trip to South Africa was a bit overwhelming until I contacted Pembury. They responded to my inquiry in minutes, and it was on a weekend evening! I was paired with Anya Visser from Pembury who worked with me (over both Skype and email!) over a couple of weeks to schedule the perfect trip for two friends celebrating a 30th birthday. I realized my time frame was a bit short since I started planning this trip just two months prior to departure, but Anya handled it beautifully. She was careful to stay within our moderate budget and made sure to still include all of our “must-see” activities in Capetown, Greater Kruger, and Victoria Falls.
From the moment we arrived at our first stop in Capetown, I knew this trip was going to be an incredible experience. All of the partner companies that Pembury scheduled us with were top notch. We were able to do a private tour to the Cape Peninsula, private Winelands tour, and a hike up Table Mountain. Though my friend and I are both well-seasoned travelers, it was so nice to be so well taken care of on this trip. Every pickup and dropoff was already arranged. The only thing we had to schedule on our own was dinner (for which Anya also provided great recommendations!) For the Kruger portion of our trip, we were booked at Naledi Bush Lodge. I have to say, this was the highlight of our trip! Everything about that place was outstanding. Following our stay in Kruger area, Anya recommended the Panorama route to get us closer to the airport. The scenery was breathtaking. What could have been a dull day in the car for several hours turned out to be an incredible tour through the Drakensberg Mountains.
Our final stop was Victoria Falls. Our hotel (The Kingdom) was incredibly convenient to the Falls, and once again, everything worked out perfectly. Our trip was capped off with a boat cruise of the Zambezi River with a surprise upgrade! I cannot thank Anya and Pembury Tours enough for a great vacation! I will most definitely contact Pembury again for future trips in Southern Africa!
