Garry Kelly Safaris is the oldest continually operating safari company in South Africa.
Garry Kelly Safaris operates throughout South Africa and Africa on its own exclusive and prime hunting concessions. These comprise of some of the finest hunting areas in Southern Africa and Africa, producing an abundance of trophy specimens. Not only has the company become internationally renowned for its exceptional quality in trophies and incomparable hospitality, it has also earned a highly respected reputation for ethical hunting practices and honesty in client dealings at every level. There are no hidden agendas and no hidden costs.
It is important to point out that every photo on this website, every lodge, every animal and every location is exactly as you will see it if you come hunting with Gary Kelly Safaris. Unfortunately, our profession has fostered many disreputable companies that try to sell canned hunts, offer substandard accommodations, don’t believe in ethical and sustainable hunting and do not have the infrastructure and staff in place to provide a world-class experience.
Our 50 years of experience is unrivaled in the South African & African hunting community. Let our family show you what a true African hunting safari should be.
