Whether it is your first trip to Africa, a hunt for the big five or the choice of forty different plains game species, we are here to cater to your every need.
The Eastern Cape of South Africa is our base and home. From the coastal forests along the Indian Ocean, to the unsurpassed beauty of the Great Karoo, and the breath-taking mountains of the north - This Malaria Free area offers a diverse combination of landscapes, vegetation and wildlife, together making it a unique hunting destination for the safari enthusiast to Africa.
Further north we hunt Mozambique’s Zambezi Delta and Zambia’s magnificent Luangwa Valley for truly classical big five safaris. In Cameroon we hunt the savannah for the ever impressive Lord Derby Eland, or enjoy the thrill of a Pygmy led chase on the elusive Bongo in the rain forests. Botswana and Namibia’s Kalahari Desert plays host to some of the best specialized species in Africa, with numerous opportunities for bow hunters too.

What People Are Saying
My third trip with John X Safaris. Ty, Patric and Ozzy were great to hunt with. I look forward to my next hunt with John X Safaris.~ Max Taylor '15 from
"Thank you again for a wonderful experience. Botswana was spectacular, Linda and Clive were wonderful hosts and their staff was professional and very helpful. John and Thomas had a great time hunting and I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures - our driver even showed me how to pick truffles! Every day we saw noteworthy animals and the guys got the trophies they were after. As Thomas' first time on safari I do believe he had a wonderful experience and will be back again. As for us, this was our 7th trip with John X and surely will not be our last. John and I made the side trip to Victoria Falls, including a helicopter ride over the falls - breath taking.
Thanks again, and until next time!"
"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
"Rich tradition combined with world class staff – John X Safaris. I would like to thank John X Safaris and all the staff for a true once in a lifetime South African experience. Eight species in nine days! This was our first African Safari and John X Safaris and staff exceeded our expectations! We look forward to returning again and again."~ Chad & Jennifer Fraughton '13 from
"A magnificent experience! Stix was an exceptional PH. Amazing diversity and the quality of game was second to none. Carl & John X Safaris provided me an experience of a lifetime!"~ Sam Cunningham '14 from
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
