What People Are Saying
Attempting to recount a South African safari experience can be a very difficult task. Telling stories and sharing photos can only begin to paint a picture of what one can expect to see when hunting plains game. Being my 2nd trip over to hunt with Carl and the John X crew, I wondered if the experience would be less exciting than my maiden voyage. I could not have been more wrong! Hunting from the mountains in the Karoo, to the dense forests on the coast, this trip could not have been scripted any better. The thrill of chasing a new trophy quality animal every day, the stories told around the dinner table each night, and the friendships made that will last a lifetime are just a few of the reasons that a person needs to visit South Africa once in his or her lifetime!~ Garrett Wall '15 from
An incredible week is at its end, way to soon! A great thank you to Carl and the staff at John X Safaris and a special thanks to our PH Martin. Hope to see you in the Stiordal river fishing salmon with me soon.~ Fridthjof Eining '15 from
"For years I have heard many stories describing Africa. They were all wrong. The descriptions of the country, the experience and the scenery fell far short of the actual experience. I was moved emotionally and spiritually with the pure beauty of the country and fell in love with the passion of the people. Although
this was our first trip, it will in no way be our last."
"We have hunted with John X Safaris and Zambeze Delta Safaris many times before and will be back.
Carl has a love for hunting and a guiding ability above most - As a result our experience hunting with him is way above the standard African experience. Accommodations are the best and trophies are very good. Thanks for a great experience! See you all next year!"
"Hemos pasado, mi hiso y yo, unas dias expepcionales. La caza, en especial en lasierra, muy interesante. Carl ha resultado ser un guia fantastico y ha conseguide que mi hiso Inigo tenga un recuerdo imborrable de su primera vez en Africa."~ Ignacio & Inigo Ruiz-Gallardon '12 from Spain
"I had a great time hunting with John X Safaris. Carl who was my PH made this experience one that I will never forget. Prior to this I had only hunted big game a couple of times so I was new to the game. He patiently explained everything to me in detail and made me feel comfortable with all of my hunts.
All of the accommodations were first class along with the staff, which made me feel very welcome. I would recommend John X Safaris to anyone who wants to have a great hunting experience in South Africa."
