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.
So what can you do to be a part of the John X Foundation?

What People Are Saying
Min första resa till Sydafrika och det kunde inte blivit bättre. Fyra av fem planerade djur skjutna. Vi hade lite otur med vädret på sista dagen så grisen ville inte komma ut, men så är det. Greg som PH och Bless som hunter var ett magnifikt par plus deras två helt underbara hundar. Dessutom att ha med Göran som svensk jaktkompis överträffade allt. Tack John X för denna gång.~ Leif Halvarsson '15 from
