Overview

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

Your last day in Cape Town is spent on a Kayak excursion from Simonstown Jetty to the Boulders Beach Penguin Colony. Once again, a unique and active way to take in the experience of visiting a world renowned tourist attraction.
