What People Are Saying

"Had a wonderful time with Rusty. The experience of a lifetime. Thank you so much for the wonderful memories. I will always remember my time in South Africa. The entire group is totally an A+ TEAM."

~ Tom Ingstad '13 from

"It was fantastic to return to the Dark Continent in 2014 by way of John X Safaris in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Carl, Etresia, Greg, Bless and the entire JXS staff created a fantastic adventure for me. From the Waterbuck that was so large that I named him the "Battleship Texas" to my last and favourite stalk of the hunt on a beautiful Eastern Cape Kudu, my hunting experience was "First Cabin" in every respect."

"Thank you all for a fantastic first hunting safari. It was a magic week, I will be back!"

~ Uno Kristiansson '13 from Sweden

"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"
