What People Are Saying

My First African Safari and I took a 51” Kudu followed by a 44” Sable, 22” and 20” Impalas, 37” Gemsbuck, impressive Blue and Black Wildebeest, 30+” Waterbuck, and a beautiful Nyala. Can life get any better? Yes it can, as the staff, accommodations, food, and hunting properties, are all second to none!

Thank you Greg and John X Safaris for making my safari experience a memory of a lifetime!

"The food was excellent and trophies were great. Hunting with Mike was absolutely excellent."

~ Lewis '13 from

"The opportunity to shoot in tough conditions was a perfect learning experience. Carl gave us the shooting and the trophies we were after. The Karoo was just like hunting the west, long shots in the wind were mandatory. The coast was like a different world. Chasing big animals in small clearings and big valleys made awesome TV! Thanks again I cannot wait to be back!"

This was my fourth trip to Africa and this safari was incomparable in every way. Greg and Bless are true professionals. They are passionate and perfectionist about what they do. They want you to shoot a fine animal as much as you want to. Many thanks to the entire staff. Best to all and stay well!
