"It was fantastic to return to the Dark Continent in 2014 by way of John X Safaris in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Carl, Etresia, Greg, Bless and the entire JXS staff created a fantastic adventure for me. From the Waterbuck that was so large that I named him the "Battleship Texas" to my last and favourite stalk of the hunt on a beautiful Eastern Cape Kudu, my hunting experience was "First Cabin" in every respect."~ Craig Horan '14 from
This was my second safari to South Africa and it was very different from my first. The quality of game was outstanding but mostly what stands out from my first safari was how hard we worked for the animals we harvested. Aside from the outstanding hunting accommodations, food and overall hospitality was nothing short of excellent. I am excited to see the action on video. Thanks Carl and all his staff for making this such an awesome vacation.~ Glynn Underwood '15 from
