Client Review

Heidi from Pembury Tours is a consummate professional and her planning was meticulous. We had a long list of destinations and experiences we wanted to add to our itinerary. Heidi found a range of stunning accommodations and went to the effort of finding us additional cultural activities over and above our spectacular wildlife experiences, which was important for us. We cannot recommend Heidi enough and look forward to coming back to Africa soon – there is so much more to see!

Daniel C

Tour Consultant's Overview

Daniel contacted me wanting to plan a dream tour to Africa. They wanted in their 14 day stay to see Cape Town, Victoria Falls, Kenya and Tanzania. We decided to add a night in the Chobe National Park as the itinerary allowed for this and it is an area that provides a very different game viewing experience. East Africa is a wildlife spectacular that is almost incomparable to any other area in Africa and they had the most wonderful time there. They also indicated interest in some cultural and tribal visits so we arranged a visit to Chinotimba Township in Victoria Falls and a Masai Mara Tribal Village Tour. They loved the different accommodation options and stayed in four and five star luxury throughout the whole tour. It was a pleasure planning this tour for these clients and I look forward to welcoming them back for further adventures soon.

Day 1 to 4 Cape Town (3 nights)

Cape Town, the 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 stands proudly above the city, flanked by the legendary Devil's Peak and historic Signal Hill. Beautiful white sandy beaches along a peaceful coastline frame the Cape Peninsula, which is famed for its unique floral kingdom, bountiful rivers and dams as well as for it’s 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 options, 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 reflect the multicultural history of the Cape and caters for everyone's taste, from fast-food outlets and casual meals to chic cuisine to very elegant fine dining.

Day 8 to 10 Masai Mara Game Reserve (2 nights)

Possibly the most famous of the reserves and arguably the greatest wildlife destination in Africa the Masai Mara has become synonymous with the safari and is currently being featured in the BBC's new series Planet Earth Live.

Nature doesn't recognize borders and the 700 square miles of the Masai Mara Reserve effectively continue the northern sweep of neighboring Tanzania's Serengeti plains, thus forming one huge ecosystem. The Mara lands are famous for the annual Wildebeest migration which occurs from June to October when the Mara becomes host to an almost unimaginable half a million wildebeest seeking the grasses raised by the spring rains of April and May. Having exhausted the grazing in the northern Serengeti the wildebeest head north en masse. This is an awesome sight in the true meaning of the word which, when coupled with the sound of thousands upon thousands of hooves pounding the earth, makes it an unforgettable spectacle.

The Wildebeest are not the only tenants of the land. The Mara is also the home to among others, zebra, elephants, and to the big cats; cheetahs, lions and leopards. Hyena, jackal, buffalo, eland, topi, impala, gazelle, warthog add to this huge diversity of wildlife.

Day 10 Masai Mara Game Reserve to Serengeti National Park

The vast grasslands of the renowned Serengeti National Park provide what many consider to be the quintessential African game viewing experience.

Meaning ‘endless plains’ in the language of the Maasai, this land of immense open spaces is home to literally millions of large herbivores, as well as the accompanying carnivores. The Serengeti is renowned for having the largest concentration of migratory animals in the world, and is also famous for its large lion population. The Serengeti National Park forms part of a huge conservation area, encompassing the adjacent Ngorongoro Conservation Area, as well as the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. With no fences or man-made barriers, huge numbers of wildlife move freely throughout this area. Arrive at camp at sunset after the afternoon game drive to enjoy your dinner and retire for the night at the luxurious

Day 10 to 12 Serengeti National Park (2 nights)

Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequalled for its natural beauty and scientific value, it has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania was established in 1952. It is home to the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth - the great migration of wildebeest and zebra. The resident population of lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, and birds is also impressive. There’s a wide variety of accommodation available, from luxury lodges to mobile camps. The park covers 5,700 sq miles, (14,763 sq km), it’s larger than Connecticut, with at most a couple hundred vehicles driving around.

The Park can be divided into 3 sections. The popular southern/central part (Seronera Valley), is what the Maasai called the “serengit”, the land of endless plains. It’s classic savannah, dotted with acacias and filled with wildlife. The western corridor is marked by the Grumeti River, and has more forests and dense bush. The north, Lobo area, meets up with Kenya’s Masai Mara Reserve, is the least visited section.

Two World Heritage Sites and two Biosphere Reserves have been established within the 30,000 km² region. It’s unique ecosystem has inspired writers from Ernest Hemingway to Peter Mattheissen, filmakers like Hugo von Lawick and Alan Root as well as numerous photographers and scientists - many of which have put their works at our disposal to create this website.

The Serengeti ecosystem is one of the oldest on earth. The essential features of climate, vegetation and fauna have barely changed in the past million years. Early man himself made an appearance in Olduvai Gorge about two million years ago. Some patterns of life, death, adaptation and migration are as old as the hills themselves.

Day 12 Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater Conservancy

After breakfast transfer back to Seronera Airstrip for your scheduled flight departing at 09h45 to Lake Manyara Airstrip where you arrive at 11h35. You will be picked up from the airstrip by your driver/guide and transferred with a scenic drive through the Ngorongoro highlands to your lodge situated on the rim of the Ngorongoro crater for lunch. The crater covers over 250 square kilometers (over 100 square miles) of land and is the home of the rare black rhino, prides of lion, elephant, cheetah and great herds of buffalo, antelope and wildebeest. Afternoon at leisure to enjoy the African sunset or optionally visit a maasai village visit.

Day 12 to 14 Ngorongoro Crater Conservancy (2 nights)

After breakfast, you will check out of your lodge and depart for a full Day Safari Tour on the crater floor of Ngorongoro; the Ngorongoro Crater is the world's largest intact caldera in an exceptional geographical position, forming a spectacular bowl of about 265 square kilometers with sides up to 600m deep, the stalking ground of around 20,000 to 30,000 wild animals at any one time.

The crater floor consists of a number of ecological environments that include grassland, swamps, forests and Lake Makat, a central soda lake filled by the Munge River. All these various habitats attract various wildlife to drink, wallow, graze, hide or climb. Although animals are free to move in and out of this contained environment, the rich volcanic soil, lush forests and spring source lakes on the crater floor tend to incline both grazers and predators to remain here throughout the year.

Day 14 Ngorongoro to Arusha & Departure

After breakfast you Bid this African Wonderland Farewell and you are transferred by road to Arusha City for Lunch and safari debriefing at a restaurant in Arusha. Thereafter, transfer to Kilimanjaro Airport for your outbound flight.

Suggested Victoria Falls: View The Falls

As you approach the Falls and hear the water pounding and witness the vapour rising, you quickly understand why local tribesman called the Falls “Mosi-oa-Tunya” (the smoke that thunders).

This vapour has the effect of adding moisture in the form of humidity to the air in the "splash zone", so that a unique, small rainforest ecosystem clings to the edge of the Falls, providing a toehold for no less than 70 shrub and 150 herbaceous species, as well as trees such as pod and Natal mahogany, ebony, Cape and strangler fig and Transvaal red milkwood.

Included in price Victoria Falls: Chinotimba Township Tour

The word Chinotimba describes the roar of the water from the mighty Victoria Falls in the local Nambya language. The Nambya and the Tonga people are the original people of the Victoria Falls area. The majority of people in Victoria Falls live in the Chinotimba township, which has a population of approximately 60 000 people.

Included in price Chobe National Park: Daily Safari Activities at Chobe Game Lodge

Chobe's wildlife roams in abundance and diversity and it is home to the largest concentration of elephant in Africa.

Included in price Masai Mara National Reserve: Daily Safari Programme at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Camp

Early Morning and afternoon game drives in the Masai Mara National Park, Kenya’s best and most scenic game park. At the northern extremity of the unique Serengeti ecosystem, blessed with a permanent water supply, the Maasai Mara has a thriving, permanent population of plains game, augmented in the dry season by the migration of two million gnus and zebras from the vast, parched Serengeti plains. Of the hunter’s "big five," elephant, buffalo, lion, and leopard are quite common, while even the much rarer rhino might come out of the thicket for you. Hyenas are plentiful and the cheetah, a 60-miles-per-hour daytime hunter, is often seen. Besides being the setting for the ancient and often tragic spectacle of the Great Migration, other marvels of the Masai Mara include giraffe, elephant, red-tailed monkeys and a host of antelope. Twice-daily interpretive game-drives led by our highly trained and experienced French guide, bird watching with resident guides and naturalists reveal the wonders of the Mara.

Included in price Masai Mara National Reserve: Cultural Village Visit

Masai communities live within the parks with their livestock but a century of close association has resulted in an almost symbiotic relationship where wildlife and people live in peace with one another. Visit an authentic Maasai Village to see and learn about the culture of one of Kenya’s indigenous peoples, The Masai! They are predominantly a warrior tribe whose lives revolve around herding cattle. One of their beliefs is that God entrusted His cattle to them, thus they measure their wealth by the number of cattle they acquire. They live in small settlements of 8-15 huts per kraal. The huts are made of branches, twigs, grass and cow dung and urine formed into a plaster and applied to a branch frame. The mixture is as strong as cement after it dries in the sun and does not smell. On a typical visit to a Masai village, you will be welcomed with song by the young Morans. They demonstrate various unique aspects of their lifestyle including how to make a fire using sticks, how to get blood from their animals (the blood forms an important part of their diet), a tour of their huts (Manyattas) and give a lecture on their culture and lifestyle.

Included in price Ngorongoro Crater Conservancy: Daily Safari Programme at Neptune Ngorongoro Luxury Lodge

The Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Some maintain that before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 m deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth. Endangered black rhino are protected within its rim, giant tusked elephants wander the forests, black-maned lions stalk the grasslands, and flamingos crowd the soda lakes. An estimated 25 000 large mammals are resident in this bowl of plenty, including a population of approximately 6 000 resident wildebeest, 16 highly endangered black rhino and around 70 lions. Cheetah move in and out of the Crater, while leopard are most often encountered in the spectacular Lerai Forest. &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, consistently recognised as one of the world’s most luxurious and elegant places to stay, sits right on the edge of the Crater, offering unbeatable views of one of the natural travel wonders of the world.
