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.

With over 33 years experience in the Safari industry you can rest assured you are in safe hands when booking a hunt with John X Safaris.

John X Safaris welcomes all hunters, no matter what your age, physical condition or hunting capabilities.
