Some families who enjoyed the benefits of Kelly Travel:
Skip Bogdan and family.
Skip, his wife Lori, and his three children, Brittany, Mathew & Jack, spent 3 nights at Phinda Mountain Lodge at the &Beyond Reserve (Phinda in Northern Zululand). They finished hunting on the 1st July and were dropped off at the lodge within an hour after packing up and leaving the hunting area in Mkuze Game Reserve. Phinda is a large private reserve that’s home to the Big Five, cheetah, hippo and numerous other plains game animals, from the Nyala to the tiny Suni. They offer two game drives a day and all accommodation, meals and beverages are included in the price. It’s a beautiful reserve, situated close to the coast, and offers various optional extras, such as day trips to the deserted beaches (that include picnics and sundowners), local village and cultural tours, and there is even a children’s programme to keep the young ones entertained and interested.
This is what they had to say: “My family and I had a wonderful time, the hunting was great and I enjoyed experiencing the diversity of terrain at the various concessions. Kate, once again, thank you for recommending Phinda. We saw plenty of game and four of the Big Five. The leopard was a bit elusive…”
George Harms and family.
George, his wife Ruth, their three children (Rob, Kevin and Lauren), their spouses (Judy and Mike) and four grandchildren (Hunter, Andrew, Ryan and Paige) spent three nights in Cape Town at the Cape Grace Hotel at the Waterfront after their safari with Garry Kelly Safaris. Kate joined them as their personal tour guide! “Due to the brilliant weather on arriving in Cape Town, it was decided that we would take a trip up Table Mountain straight away, which was truly a memorable trip! The view was amazing! The weather hung in there for us and we were blessed with warm sunny days for the three days we were there. We took a fun and interesting tour along Chapman’s Peak drive to Hout Bay, where we boarded a boat and visited the seal colony, travelled in and around the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, visited the southern most point of the African continent, saw the penguins at Boulder’s Rock and had a fantastic seafood lunch at the naval port of Simon’s Town. The last day was spent tasting and learning about wine in Stellenbosch and having a very long and fun lunch at Simonsig Wine Estate!” Thanks to you all, The Harms family!
This is what they had to say: “I just wanted to say thank you again for an awesome experience with you guys in July. A bunch of us watched our DVD that Kate and Derek made for us and are really pleased with the way it turned out. It was great that Kate was available to spend time with us in Cape Town to show us around and put up with us!” – Mike Krieg
Jeff Smithers and family.
Jeff, his wife Lori, their two sons Jake and Luke, and Jake’s girlfriend Monica spent seven days hunting in and around the Midlands while staying at Beverley.
Lori, Luke, Jake and Monica did lots of different outings together while Jeff hunted. Kate Kelly took them on the Midlands Meander, a delightful route filled with wonderful local arts and crafts, which was a real shopping experience. They enjoyed an interesting guided tour of Mpophomeni, a rural township close to Howick, where they experienced a traditional lunch of meat, intestines and vegetables! They met a real life sangoma in his dark, cluttered hut and learnt about the violent clashes of the past with the ANC and IFP in the area. They took an interesting trip up the rugged Sani Pass to the highest pub in Africa – the Sani Top Chalet at 2874 metres above sea level! Once up there, they took a guided trip to a local living Basotho Village, tasted some traditional beer and homemade bread, and were amazed at how these folk lived in such harsh, cold conditions! (There was an inch of snow on the ground!)
“It was a lot of fun, thank you the Smithers family!”
