The hunting heritage of our family goes back to the early 1800s, when my ancestors arrived in Port Alfred and began their trek to Johannesburg and then on to Swaziland. I believe it was during this time that hunting became more than just a sport for the Kelly’s – it became a way of life.
The beginning of a legacy
On arrival in Swaziland, my great grandfather Tom Kelly started the first private game reserve in Swaziland, called Panata Ranch. It was here that my grandfather Cullen Kelly started his hunting career. He hunted all over Swaziland, Mozambique and South Africa, putting to use all he had learned from his father.
