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.
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.

What People Are Saying
Another dream experience come true. My 2nd trip back to JXS proved to be as sett as the first. Hunting the mighty Cape Buffalo has created a profound and unrivaled respect when speaking of "dangerous game". Each time we entered teh thick dense bush in pursuit of such a trophy there was an unpredictable outcome. In the end, PH Stix helped me to harvest a larger than life trophy. This giant says it all. We the harvested to mature trophy Bushbuck rams. Thanks John X.~ Jarod Wallace '15 from

El trato en la Libela es como si estuvieses en tu casa: inmejorable y comodisímo. Volveremos!”~ Solana Family '13 from

"Our Hunt was all we’d hope for and more! Our PH Juan was very special!"~ Carl & Brooke '13 from
"I don't know where to begin. Rusty and John X Safaris are a class above anyone else. I grew up as a ranch kid dreaming of Africa. I never thought I could have the experiences and such that I did. Rusty was a PH after my own heart. He had the desire and drive as I did. Nothing but beautiful old mature males were taken. I experienced a lifetime of memories in seven days. It's been said that 'the only man to envy is he who has not experienced his first African Safari'. I know now that is true. Thank you to Carl and John X Safaris, as well as my man Rusty for a dream realized.
I will be back again in 2016 or 2017...."
