Client Review

Hi Kerry

Roger and I have had a wonderful holiday. We really wanted to "spoil" ourselves on our African Adventure and the Tour you planned for us was everything we dreamed of, and more. Your recommendations regarding the Hotels and Lodges were spot on. True luxury and indulgence made us feel really special.

The Blue Train trip from Cape Town to Pretoria was one of our highlights and was the perfect way to cross your beautiful country. The excursions were varied and we loved touring on the motorcycle/sidecar, kayaking in the ocean and cycling through the mountains and vineyards.

Our stay at the Sabi Sands Game Reserve was wonderful and the lodge was fantastic. I see why Richard Branson is so proud of his property here. Victoria Falls lived up to all our expectations and the canoeing on the Zambezi River was a highlight as you said it would be. Flying over the Falls in a helicopter was the perfect way to end our stay in Zambia.

The final destination of Chobe Game Reserve was another highlight and a great way to end our trip. The game viewing was incredible and the late afternoons spent on the boat watching the elephants swim through the river is a memory we will cherish forever.

Thank you for putting this all together. From the moment we landed in Cape Town until we flew out of Johannesburg we felt in good hands.

We will definitely be back and will recommend Pembury Tours for African travel to all our friends.

Once again Thank you and best regards

Roger & Mim

Tour Consultant's Overview

Mim and Roger love to travel, but had not yet been to Africa and were very keen to visit. In their initial enquiry, they had indicated that were active and would like to include a few tours where they could enjoy the outdoors, whilst seeing the country side. After a few emails and phone calls, we worked out the itinerary that inlcuded a bike trip in the wonderful Winelands, kayak to see the penguins in Simonstown, caneoing at the Victoria Falls, bush walks whilst on safari. We also inlcuded an exciting helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls and the Livingstone Island Tour. Along with luxury accommodation, 2 nights were spent on the wonderful Blue Train from Cape Town to Johannesburg. So happy to hear that the trip went well for my clients.

The Bue Train

As time meandered from the 19th Century towards the dawn of the new era, a dream was born. A dream of harnessing steam technology to link Africa’s vast south to north, around the awe-inspiring mountain ranges that dot the continent, through the apparently arid desert landscapes, over untamed savannah grasslands teeming with wildlife. From the Cape all the way to Cairo... all of this on parallel lines of tempered steel.

It is from this dream that The Blue Train was born. Cairo was never to be, but the dreamers persevered and The Blue Train now traverses South Africa and its breath-taking scenery in a manner that befits the mystique that has grown around it.

Kings and presidents have indulged on this magnificent, moving five-star “hotel-on-wheels”. From love-struck honeymooners, to adulated celebrities. And even ordinary folk who romanticise about a life of spectacular luxury, a life that has seemed tantalizingly out of reach. Until now...

Welcome aboard The Blue Train. Your unforgettable experience is about to begin…

Your De Luxe Suite will forever alter your definition of what style and class entail. From your elegant and relaxing lounge during the day, it transforms into a subtly-lit bedroom of indulgence during the night, bedecked with goose-down and 100 per cent percale-cotton bedding, from your individually-controlled air-conditioning system, under-floor heating, opulent marble and gold-fitted bathroom, its scented bath salts and plush monogrammed towels, to the electronic entertainment options on offer.

The De Luxe coaches each have four suites that measure 4 by 2 metres. One of these contains a double bed and a ¾ size bath tub with handheld shower, while the others have twin beds with showers.

Mountain bike touring doesn’t have to be all about grinding your gears and eating dirt.

Take in the views and indulge in a bit of wine-tasting – without worrying about drinking and driving.

This is a luxury mountain bike tour through the Franschhoek Winelands and a tour with a lot of flexibility. If you want to ride all day, go for it. If you want to take it easy and pedal leisurely in and around town stopping at each vineyard for a tasting as you go, that’s also just fine. And if you’re a real dirt hound – no worries, we’ll take you to the single-track!

Half Day City Tour of Pretoria

The City of Pretoria lies only 58 km (36 miles) north of Johannesburg and provides a complete contrast to the City of Gold. South Africa's administrative capital was founded in 1855 and named after the Voortrekker leader, Andries Pretorius. Often referred to as the "Jacaranda City", this nickname refers to the thousands of trees lining the streets, their purple blossoms heralding the approach of summer each October.

Places of interest you will visit during this tour include the Voortrekker Monument, a striking memorial built to honour the early pioneers
Kruger House Museum and Church Square, where the statue of Paul Kruger looks down on the passers-by.
Union Buildings, which house the offices of the State President, Deputy President and Minister of Foreign Affairs. This also provides an impressive view over the city.

Safari in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Nowhere in South Africa will one find a wildlife experience quite like the one experienced within the Sabi Sand Reserve. Sharing a 50km (31.25 miles) unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, this immense (65 000 hectare/ 153 000 acre) and diverse tract of land is home to The Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant), and much much more.
This area is also in the process of being further enlarged within the Peace Park concept with an expected integration and amalgamation with protected areas in Mozambique, and eventually Zimbabwe.

Two rivers supply the game reserve with a valuable water source. The Sand River flows through the reserve for 50km (31 miles) from north west to south east whilst the Sabie River flows on the southern boundary. The sustenance of these rivers ensures that this area enjoys one of the highest and most bio-diverse wildlife populations of any area in Africa. Over two hundred different species live in abundance, whilst the ever changing bird life provides even the most experienced ornithologist with rare finds. Such is the environment that the wildlife, save for the migratory birds, remain in their territories all year round.

Sunset Cruise on the African Queen

Guests are met by staff from the cruise boat at the 'Royal Landing' jetty on the Zambezi River for boarding. The African Queen meanders slowly upstream along the length of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park looking for game on the way. A number of animals and a host of bird species can be viewed from comfortable chairs on cool wooden decks. Excellent food is served on board and the bar is well stocked with spirits, good wines, beers and soft drinks.
Lavishly decked out with every thought to the guest’s personal comfort, the African Queen is a three-decker river cruiser. After the cruise, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

Half Day Canoe trip on the Zambezi

Probably the best way to appreciate the beauty, peace and wildlife of the Zambezi River above the Victoria Falls is to paddle slowly downstream in a canoe with some of the best wildlife guides in Africa. Watch the Pied Kingfisher hover and dive, listen to the haunting call of the fish eagle and the grunts of the hippo, see elephant, buffalo, and other animals come down to drink and explore the islands and waterways along the route. There is time to stop for something to drink and listen to tales of Livingstone's journey to the Victoria Falls.

Visit to the Victoria Falls

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.

The Victoria Falls is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, and travellers can access the falls through either the town of Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side or from Livingstone in Zambia.
The Falls’ local name, Mosi-Oa-Tunya - "the Smoke that Thunders" - more accurately defines the essence of the place: the rising, shining spray that can be seen 30km away. 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

Helicopter Flight over Victoria Falls

David Livingstone famously wrote on seeing the Victoria Falls for the first time in 1855 that “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”. Little did he know that 150 years later we could have exactly that opportunity. The best way to appreciate the true splendour of the Victoria Falls is to view them from the air. Our helicopters have specially designed ‘bubble shaped’ windows perfect for panoramic viewing and great photographic opportunities from all seats.

Experience the Flight of Angels with breathtaking views of the Victoria Falls, Batoka Gorge and the Zambezi.
The helicopter takes off over the Zambezi River and onwards to the Victoria Falls, circles over the Falls and the islands and returns over the Mosi–oa–Tunya Zoological Park.

Safari in Chobe National Park

Famous for its large elephant herds, Chobe National Park, which is the second largest national park in Botswana covering some 11 700 square kilometres, has some of the largest concentrations of game found on the continent of Africa. Game drives in this park are legendary, with sightings of herds of more than 100 elephants at any one time being the norm. You may also see up to 15 different species of animals on any one game drive, including all the antelope, warthog, monkeys and baboons, as well as predators like lion, leopard, hyena and jackal. The Park provides a kaleidoscope of species for bird enthusiasts, in what is one of Africa’s finest birding safari locations. Day drives are into Chobe National Park and night drives are on the concession.

Located within the Chobe Forest Reserve, the lodges offer guided walks with their team of experienced professional guides who will escort you on an enthralling walk in this game-rich enclave. Walks depart early morning and return for breakfast.

At Chobe you enjoy a scenic cruise along the Chobe River, which allows you to get up close with hippo, crocodile and many water birds. You also get really close to any animals that come down to the river, especially elephants and buffalo.
