Glen Lyon, South Africa
A beautiful sporting game reserve with a genuine chance to complete a Kalahari Macnad Challenge
The stunning privately owned 58,000-hectare, private game reserve in the Kalahari is the perfect destination to enjoy the very best the South Africa has to offer. This is a classic mixed sporting estate, offering world class sand grouse shooting, wildfowling, pigeon and dove shooting, fly fishing on the orange river and top-quality traditional plains game hunting. The estate specialises in the Kalahari Macnab challenge, with the aim to shoot a brace of sand grouse, catch a yellow fish on the fly and hunt a Gemsbok all in a day!
Parties are beautifully hosted on the stunning estate with 5-star service and food, with a real attention to detail. The estate is the private preserve of the owner and his guests; however we have exclusive permission to let 4 parties come in per year to attempt the challenge. Those not on the Macnab challenge will be kept busy with a mix of wing shooting, hunting and fishing, with flexibility for tailored itineraries.
Smaller parties of 4-8 guests stay in the charming Park homestead and larger groups from 6-16 guests staying in the main 9 bedroom Glen Lyon Lodge, which has indoor and outdoor dining areas, games room, swimming pool and tennis court and gym.
The estate has a landing strip and can accommodate private charters, offering easy access to connecting flights from Johannesburg, Durban or Cape Town. Or the nearest local airport is in Kimberly.
We recommend hiring guns and rifles, for ease of travel, the estate has good quality equipment. However, Roxtons will supply all of the necessary forms which will need to be completed in advance of travel. The licenses will be issued prior to departure and will either be sent to the gun or will be presented to them on arrival in Johannesburg/entry airport.
