What People Are Saying
This was my 4th trip to Africa. South Africa is most often the first place people go. This was after 4 trips the place I wanted to hunt unique animals, and after doing my homework JXS was the company to go with. I have friends who had hunted with JXS and had nothing but great comments to tell me. The company & staff are some of the very best I have had the pleasure to hunt with. A+ rating, people with the eye on the ball & work ethics that can not be beat. John X Safaris, the company to go with!~ Larry Pendleton '15 from

"What an incredible experience. John X Safaris far exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful time. It was great to see so much diverse country and we were able to stay several days in three different locations. Everyone was so professional and courteous. You really go the extra mile in taking care of your clients. Our PH, Sean, was awesome, as was the whole staff. This is a trip we will never forget. We are already making plans for our next safari. Thank you!"~ Larry & Claudia Fullmer '14 from
