2 nights Timbavati | 2 nights Sabi Sand | 5 nights Cape Town | 1 night Victoria Falls | 2 nights Chobe
First of all we want to thank Kerry from Pembury tours for planning an absolutely perfect holiday. During our two week visit to Africa we went to 3 different Safari lodges, Victoria Falls and Cape Town. Time was spent in South Africa, Zambia and Botswana.
We would highly recommend Kerry and Pembury Tours as the entire trip went very smoothly and she was easy to get in contact with via email while we were away in order to make some changes to the itinerary due to weather. We provided her with a general idea of what we wanted to see and see did the rest. Once we arrived we were met at the Airport and provided with a binded book of our itinerary and it was very detailed with the what, where and when of each day’s activity.
We did get to the see the Big 5 and the ugly 5. Having done the 3 different Safari lodges they did all offer something different and they all were great. The Simbavati lodge we felt had the best accommodations and the best service from the staff. These were also the only drives we were able to see Rhino’s. The Inyati lodge we felt had a large property which to explore. It did not feel at all repetitive each day because we were always going to a different part of the reserve. This was the only reserve that we were able to spot a Cheetah and the wild dogs. The Elephant Lodge and Choble were amazing by the size of the herds of Elephant and Buffalo that we came across. What we enjoyed about the Elephant Lodge was we did an all day drive. This allowed us to get deep into Chobe and felt as if we were out on our own and did not see many other vehicles during this time. Every lodge was fantastic.
Victoria Falls certainly was flowing. We did get soaking wet but our guide did provide us with rain jackets before walking up. Seeing the rainbow coming up for the falls was certainly a sight to see.
Shark Cage diving was an experience. When we were out there 5 sharks came up to the boat. The sharks were quick so you only had a few seconds to catch a glimpse of them before they swam off. The huge swells in the water added to the challenge of catching a glimpse.
Thank you for all your help planning out our holiday!
