What People Are Saying
"South Africa beautiful and awesome. It's people friendly and welcoming. John X Safaris owners and team demonstrate the very essence of SA. South Africa - it's not an adventure, but an "ADDICTION". We are already planning our next trip. The hard decision is what animals to harvest, easy decision the outfitter. Carl & Trish, Greg, Bless, and the entire staff made our trip unbelievable.
PH, Greg Hayes, put Jim on game that every hunter hopes to see and harvest. Experiencing a Kudu stalk from 800 meters away, resulting in a trophy of a life time was a certain highlight! Unbelievable Nyala taken within 34 yards - another great harvest. Watching Bless and Jock tracking game through the thick brush was indescribable. Bushbuck, Impala, Blesbuck, Springbuck and Warthog finished of one memorable hunter's experience."
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
"This was my first trip to Mozambique & my first dangerous game hunt. Due to my professional hunters and tracker, I never had any concern over my safety. I was successful in all the game I hunted and all the game taken were mature trophies. I would recommend John X Safaris to anyone that was considering an African Hunt."~ Ron Machado '12 from USA

Thank you again!"
