What People Are Saying
"I thought I was going on safari to ride an elephant and be able to cross that experience off my bucket list. Indeed, I can successfully cross it off! But with John X Safaris, I experienced so much more that made my African adventure such a memorable one. The hospitality and friendliness of the team, made everyday truly a vacation. The sights and sounds of the wild, the animals, birds and game made the photo opportunities terrific. I came to ride an elephant, I left with memories, my first trophy and an unforgettable experience."~ Mike & Cindi McNair '13 from USA
The 3rd time in Africa and it was probably the best. At Glen Harry, I harvested a beautiful Eland. I want to thank Carl and the rest of the staff, especially Stix. My friends and I had a fantastic stay.~ Benny Fredriksson '15 from
An incredible week is at its end, way to soon! A great thank you to Carl and the staff at John X Safaris and a special thanks to our PH Martin. Hope to see you in the Stiordal river fishing salmon with me soon.~ Fridthjof Eining '15 from
"If you have already been on a safari, you have come to know that it is more than the hunt … much more! On our sixth safari, we had the good fortune to share John X Safaris with our two best friends who were on their first safari. And what a safari experience it turned out to be. Everything from riding
elephants, to fishing, to hunting waterfowl. The highlight of our experience was being able to take a magnificent Blue Duiker from a ground blind. John X Safaris slogan is “Going the Distance” … and they never cease to amaze us … creating a safari experience that is unmatched anywhere."
"Gracias por unos dias fantasticos en compania de todos ustedes que lo hacen posible. Siempre los tendre en mi memoria por la buena caza que ustedes proporcionan muchas gracias por todo."~ Manuel Revenga Garcia '12 from Spain
"Now that I am home I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks. I can't begin to tell you what a great time I had. I now fully understand the magic quality and allure of Africa and why so many people make return trips. This was the trip of a lifetime. Everything down to the smallest detail was amazing. The professionalism of the entire staff was unlike anything I have ever experienced. Thanks!"~ Tim Tyner '12 from USA
