Overview

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!

The rest of the day is at leisure until Zsu Zsu arrives. Upon arrival at Cape Town Airport, Zsu Zsu will be met by our representative and are transferred to your hotel for a 4 night stay. You meet up with Suzanne and perhaps enjoy a lovely meal along the Sea point Promenade.

Welcome to Cape Town, Mother City of Africa, and the Western Cape, an area which is regarded as one of the most beautiful regions in the world. The City is a rare cultural gem, resulting from the amalgamation of Indonesian, French, Dutch, British and German settlers, the local Bushman and Hottentot tribes and the Bantu tribes from the north.

The impressive presence of Table Mountain, flanked by the legendary Devil’s Peak and historical Signal Hill, stands proudly above the city.

Beautiful white sandy beaches along a peaceful coastline frame the Cape Peninsula, which is famed for its unique floral kingdom, bountiful rivers, vleis and dams and magnificent countryside. The surrounding area extends far into the winelands, green in summer and red-gold in autumn.

The Mother City boasts a multitude of entertainment, ranging from outdoor activities and adventures in the sun to a roaring night life under neon signs. The vast range of shopping opportunities includes haggling with shop holders at Greenmarket Square Flea Market, as well as breezing through sophisticated and stylish shopping malls. The huge variety of restaurants reflects the multicultural history of the Cape and caters for everyone’s taste, from fast-food outlets and casual to the chic to the very elegant.

The city provides a setting for many scenic wonders, magnificent seascapes and panoramic vistas. The beautiful coastal areas of Camps Bay, Clifton, Llandudno, Bantry Bay, Hout Bay and Blouberg surround the breath-taking tranquillity of the winelands, Constantia, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek.

This morning you are transferred to Cape Town Airport for your flight to Hoedspruit. Upon arrival in Hoedspruit, you are met and transferred to your game lodge in the Balule Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger area. There is time to settle in before you depart on your first game drive.

Forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park, the Balule Nature Reserve has no fences and the wildlife is able to cross freely between Balule and the rest of the Greater Kruger National Park. The safari experience in Balule Nature Reserve is highly personalised because game drive vehicles have exclusive traversing rights in their area. Balule Reserve is a remarkable natural sanctuary known for its exceptionally high concentration of animal and bird life.

Close contact encounters are guaranteed as the animals are not threatened by the presence of vehicles thanks to sound conservation management policies. Safaris are led by experienced rangers coupled with local Shangaan trackers. With great sightings of leopard (usually the most elusive of cats), lion, rhino, elephant and buffalo during game drives – visitors are never lacking in exciting photographic content.

After your morning game drive, you bid farewell to this African wonderland. You are transferred by road to your hotel in the Mpumalanga Lowveld. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure to relax in the gardens of your Hotel.

This morning you are transferred to Nelspruit Airport for your flight to Victoria Falls. Upon arrival at Livingstone Airport, you are transferred to your hotel for your two night stay. There is time this afternoon to view the Falls.

Besides being one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls is the unchallenged adventure capital of Africa with more than 50 activities available. The Victoria Falls is considered to be the largest waterfall in the world. See the mighty Zambezi River as it thunders over the 1700 metre wide Victoria Falls and plunges 100 metres into a narrow gorge below.

The great columns of spray rising from the tumultuous falls can be seen from 80 kilometres away on a clear day. If you are lucky enough to be there at full moon, a “moonbow” can be seen in the spray instead of the usual daylight rainbow.

Today is at leisure, you can take a last glimpse of the falls until you are collected and transferred to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight to Johannesburg, where you connect with your international flights home.
