Client Review

Easy, non-stressful, super helpful, amazing!!!!

Anya was wonderful! I had started off working with 3 different people and Anya far exceeded anything they could offer us. She is so patient and attentive to every detail. We must have changed the itinerary 8 times before settling on the final one. Without Anya we would not have had this once in a lifetime experience. She thought of everything! Her optional tour suggestions were wonderful. We were really able to do so much and have so many amazing experiences. We received a handmade bag with our itinerary and information about all the places we were visiting etc. What a nice keepsake! She always had time to answer any and all of my questions no matter how small. Her knowledge and experience was invaluable! We had an absolutely amazing trip!

Thank you thank you thank you!

Colin & Karen M

Tour Consultant's Overview

The first time Colin & Karen M Travelled to Southern Africa with Pembury Tours, they had chosen our most popular Itinerary, the 11 Day Cape Town, and Kruger & Victoria Falls Tour. Two years down the line, I was contacted by Colin. With his love for the Zulu Battle Fields and Their love for Africa, Colin and Karen were ready for the next adventure. Colin had booked a tour to view the Battle Fields as it was the 140th commemorative of the Anglo-Zulu War. Once Colin completed this adventure, Karen was going to fly into South Africa and join Colin on a journey through KwaZulu Natal, a Safari in Sabi Sands and a short stop to Cape Town. I was excited! It is lovely working with Colin and Karen! I had arranged the tour in an order to ensure the clients would have direct flights to each destination and the travel time between each stop was an interesting and short distance! Although it was not their first time in Southern Africa, Colin & Karen had an amazing time exploring a whole different region of our beautiful country!
