“If we were to succeed in educating and influencing our local communities in the value of sustainable hunting, we will need to start by giving. Only then will the true value of hunting be realized. ” - Author unknown.
The John X Foundation has a rich history of involving hunters in our local communities. Since that first SCI Blue Bag, many hunters have subsequently joined in the Blue Bag program. Many have brought blue bags stuffed to the point of bursting; some have simply filled extra space in their luggage, while others find it easier to donate cash, which the foundation intern uses to purchase items on their behalf. 100% of all donations go directly to targeted projects.
The number and amount of donations continues to grow substantially each year. Through targeted coordinated donations the John X Foundation can focus on bigger projects that impact many more than ever before.
The Foundation accepts gifts of all types and sizes. Past donations have included everything from school supplies, tooth brushes, water bottles, blankets, toys, building/construction supplies, cash, and much, much more.
Many of our past donors have enjoyed the privilege of delivering their gifts in person. There is simply nothing more rewarding than seeing a child’s eyes or a teacher’s face light up when you personally handover your contribution/s. Time permitting, we will make arrangements so that you can personally go onsite to touch the lives of those you are helping. We highly recommend this as one of the most rewarding parts of your safari experience.
For a personalized answer to all your questions with regards to the John X Foundation, please feel free to contact Trish directly. She will be more than glad to assist with contribution options on the most current projects.

What People Are Saying
Everything was beyond excellent. Carl worked extremely hard and was a pleasure to be around. With John X Safaris I was able to experience African hunting with luxury. Carl was able to get me every animal that I wanted. Coming to Africa I had no idea what to expect but this trip will be one that I will remember for a long time. Our tracker Zwayi worked extremely hard as well.~ Robert Smith '15 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

"Thank you all for a fantastic first hunting safari. It was a magic week, I will be back!"~ Uno Kristiansson '13 from Sweden
This was my first African experience and Carl and John X Safaris definitely did not disappoint. The quality of the hunt and the trophies were no less than phenomenal. I had to work for every animal and that made the hunt more worth it and enjoyable. This will definitely not be my last hunt with John X Safaris and Carl, as I already know what is on my list for the next hunt.~ Justin Travis '15 from
