Hunting with John X Safaris is more than just a hunt - It’s the total safari experience.
It is a journey of discovery, a wakening of the senses, and ultimately the realization of the dream of hunting Africa.
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 fourth hunt with John X Safaris and they just keep getting better. I just don’t know how they keep doing it….. Thanks again my friend!"~ Jeff Edland '13 from USA
Another wonderful safari with John X!~ Sam Cunningham '15 from
"If you have already been on a safari, you have come to know that it is more than the hunt … much more! On our sixth safari, we had the good fortune to share John X Safaris with our two best friends who were on their first safari. And what a safari experience it turned out to be. Everything from riding
elephants, to fishing, to hunting waterfowl. The highlight of our experience was being able to take a magnificent Blue Duiker from a ground blind. John X Safaris slogan is “Going the Distance” … and they never cease to amaze us … creating a safari experience that is unmatched anywhere."
"Our family can’t say thank you enough for all the wonderful memories and adventures John X Safaris provided us. Amazing first time hunting experiences for Abby, all of Bo’s animals including his record breaking Kudu, and some exhilarating Cape Town adventures. You have exceptional staff, fantastic accommodations, and truly an amazing game reserve. We enjoyed every minute and can’t wait to begin planning another trip back!"~ The Tripp Family '14 from
"In 2001 I went on a once in a lifetime trip with John X Safaris. In 2011 I completed my 6th trip with John X. Obviously I am a believer in the quality of the entire John X experience from the first class accommodations, to the outstanding food, exceptional service and even more importantly - to the quality hunting areas that produce the exceptional trophies I've come to expect. Trip number seven is being planned for 2012 - I simply can't get enough!"~ Brett Nelson '12 from USA
