We had the best holiday ever thanks to Pembury Tours! We had a wonderful experience with Pembury Tours.Our agent, Anya, took all our requirements in terms of timing, budgets & quality and organized a trip across Southern Africa that was outstanding and of amazing value for money. All the accommodations she had booked for us were amongst the best we’ve ever stayed with, and she made sure that we would get the best rooms and packages available for the money.
The guides she had booked for us were also excellent, very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. In terms of logistics, our trip went as smoothly as you could hope: all our transfers were present on time, we were always provided with information when arriving in a new locations about our upcoming arrangements.Finally, we also very much appreciated the little extras, for example, asking our lodge to plan a private surprise dinner for us as it was our anniversary. Very appreciated! Last but not least, Anya was also super responsive answering all our questions via email, and she adapted quickly and always found solutions to our needs.We will highly recommend Pembury Tours to our friends and family!
Upon arrival at Cape Town International Airport, you are met by our representative and transferred to your hotel along the Seapoint promenade for your 4 night stay. The rest of the day is at liesure
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 International Airport for your direct flight to Nelspruit. Upon arrival in Nelspruit, you are met and transferred to your game lodge in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve.
There is time to settle into your lodge before departing on your first afternoon game drive in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve.
Forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park, the Sabi Sand Reserve has no fences and the wildlife is able to cross freely between the Sabi Sands and the rest of the Greater Kruger National Park. The safari experience in the Sabi Sand is highly personalised because game drive vehicles have exclusive traversing rights in their area. The Sabi Sand 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 exceptional 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 White River. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure to relax in the gardens of your lodge.
The small town of White River – an important farming and tourism centre – was founded around 1890. The farming tradition of the people that settled in White River after the Anglo-Boer War, has remained practically the same to this day and still attracts many who wish to witness this culture first hand and learn more about a place such as this which is virtually untouched. Agriculture in this area relies largely on the production of tropical fruit, flowers and timber. It is one of the largest in the Mpumalanga province and is therefore extremely important to the economy of the Region.
White River is a favourite holiday destination for both locals and foreign tourists looking to enjoy the beauty of the Crocodile River Valley and with three irrigation dams and a number of nearby forests there is plenty for outdoorsy types to enjoy. Fun activities in White River include visiting the St. Georges Anglican Church, visiting the Mission End Trading Post from which you can pick up antiques and treasures.
This morning you enjoy breakfast until you are collected and transferred to Nelspruit Airport for your direct flight to Victoria Falls. Upon arrival at Livingstone Airport, you are transferred to your hotel for your 3 night stay.
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 until you are collected from your hotel and transferred across the border into Botswana to Chobe National Park. You check into your hotel along the Chobe River for your 2 night stay.
Chobe National Park on Botswana’s north-west border is a pristine wilderness of open plains, baobab trees, ancient woodland, swamps and flood plains and is home to the greatest concentration of game in the entire southern African subcontinent. One of Africa’s most beautiful rivers, the Chobe River, forms the Park’s northern boundary.
The Chobe riverfront area is most famous for its large herds of elephants and buffalo, which come down to the river in huge herds to drink during the dry winter months. During this season, one may see hundreds of elephants at one time. Other species include waterbuck, lechwe, puku (this is the only part of Botswana where they can be seen), giraffe, kudu, roan and sable, impala, warthog, bushbuck, monkeys and baboons, along with the accompanying predators: lion, leopard, hyena and jackal. Over 460 bird species have been recorded in the park, making it one of Africa’s premier venues for bird safaris.
A highlight of Chobe is taking a river cruise, which allows you to get up close with hippos, crocodile and a mind-boggling array of water birds. You also get really close to the animals that come down to the river to drink.
After your morning activity, you bid farewell to this African wonderland. You are met by your driver and transferred to Kasane Airport for your connecting flight to Johannesburg. Upon arrival in Johannesburg, you make your way to the International Departure terminal for your flight home.
