HEALTH PRECAUTIONS

Malaria

All of John X Safari's hunting areas in South Africa are Malaria-free.

Note that our area in Mozambique is a Malaria area. All clients must ensure the necessary preventative precautions are taken before your arrival. Please consult your local doctor regards Malaria medication.

No inoculations are required for travelers visiting Southern Africa, we do however advise clients to ensure that their tetanus shots are up to date.

General Precautions

We recommend you visit your doctor before leaving on safari if you have any permanent health issues. Bring along extra prescription drugs if required.

All our hunting vehicles and camps are set up with full first aid kits for minor field injuries. We do however recommend bringing along a general antibiotic and basic medication for headaches, colds, and flu and stomach ailments.

Please ensure you have an extra pair of glasses or sufficient contact lenses if required. Dark glasses are recommended for early mornings and late afternoons when the sun can be at a very uncomfortable height. Dark glasses also act as a form of eye protection when traveling on open vehicles.

We recommend bringing along a good sun block of at least SPF 30, as the African sun is something to take seriously.

If you have any doubts about medical issues, check with your local doctor or travel clinic. As neither may be fully conversant with the different African regions always use John X Safaris as a backup as well.

Liability & Travel Insurance

Although every possible precaution is taken to safeguard you and your property, John X Safaris accepts no liability for any accidental injury or illness that you may incur or loss or damage to your property during or after your safari. Ensure that you have medical insurance to cover any medical assistance you may require while on safari with John X Safaris.

What People Are Saying

"Gracias por ser parte de mi primer safari en Africa y el poderlo compartir con mi mejor amigo Andres lo hizo muy especial, gracias por todo y nos veremos was pronto que tarde."

~ Gustavo Ruiz '12 from Spain

The 3rd time in Africa and it was probably the best. At Glen Harry, I harvested a beautiful Eland. I want to thank Carl and the rest of the staff, especially Stix. My friends and I had a fantastic stay.

~ Benny Fredriksson '15 from

"Excellent week. My PH, Rusty, was excellent and loves to hunt. He worked very hard to fill my needs. He communicates well and has an excellent personality. Lauren and her staff were 'over the top' accommodating to guest needs. Food and presentation was great as was the field lunches. Both lodges were beautiful. It was good to experience both locations. All the PH's got along well and were well coordinated. I must also comment that the communication from Trish and Carl was immediately responsive at all times.
Thanks again John X Safaris. God Bless"
