Hunters by nature have a proud legacy of giving back to the passion they hold so dear. The very act of hunting is arguably the finest form of conservation in the world today. In saying this we recognize the necessity of not only giving back by creating a sustainable value for wildlife, but taking responsibility for the survival of this fine tradition we call hunting.
Through this necessity, on a bitterly cold Nebraska night in January 2009, the initial John X Foundation was born in one of our hunter’s trophy rooms. Our good friend, Chris Petersen, had been on numerous previous hunts with John X Safaris, and wanted to “give” something back to the communities and areas he’d enjoyed hunting from before.
Our approach was one where humanitarian initiative combined with education and sustainable wildlife projects would ensure the survival of hunting for generations to come. Through coordinated contributions by our hunters, John X Safaris has been able to spearhead both humanitarian and conservation causes on an annual basis.
Since then the John X Foundation has grown in leaps and bounds – a true testament to the proud hunters that join us on safari each year.

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

"The hunting was superb and the trophies excellent. Greg and Bless are the best team I have hunted with in Africa. The food and accommodation at Oude Kraal and Lalibela were brilliant, thanks to Lauren and Charmaine, and Pam and I loved our 10 days in the Cape Province."~ Max King '14 from
"Jonathan gave me the best time ever. Carl has been so great and friendly. I will never forget this journey. It feels so sad that I have to go home now. I'll be back next year. Thank you so much Jono. You brought so much fun and experience into the hunt. You gave me a memory for a lifetime. Thank you everyone!"~ Mikael Wallenstam '12 from
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
"The total safari was all above any expectations! The staff and lodging was professional and very kind, always willing to please. The hunting was very good, conducted in a professional, safe, and fun environment. Our PH T-bone was the best!"~ Wade Fairchild '14 from
