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
"Had a Great Time! Hope to return soon"~ Tom Lincoln '14 from
"... John X Safaris is truly a great safari operation. I have nothing but good things to say. The accommodations, food, lodge staff and most of all the quality of game are second to none."~ Tony White '12 from USA
"WOW! That’s all that comes to mind. An absolutely incredible hunt. I could not believe the abundance and diversity of game to hunt and observe. Every time I turned around Mike and Themba would point out a different animal or bird. I have no idea how Mike spots so many animals. Let alone
identify and judge trophy quality at 1000 yards! John X Safaris is a top notch operation and made me feel at home. The staff from one end to the other was accommodating. More importantly the smiles and laughs started at breakfast and lasted until the last man left the pub. What a great experience – Thanks!"
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
