For those who enjoy fishing as much as hunting, there is great fun for all just off our coast in the Indian Ocean. Take a day off from hunting and travel a mere 45 minutes from Base Camp to Kenton on Sea. From Kenton, you will experience a beach launch, an exhilarating run through the breakers and a day of fishing sensation.
We offer both bottom fishing and deep sea trolling giving the angler the option of fishing along our rugged coast or traveling out to the warm Mozambican current. While bottom fishing, anglers will mostly target; Cape Salmon, Red Roman, Scotchman, Cape Stump nose, Sand Fish, Cob and Black Mussel Cracker.
On weather permitting days, trips to the Islands in search of Yellow Tail Tuna for a day of trolling is a must. May thru July is the best time for Yellow Fin Tuna, and August thru October, the best for Yellow Tail Tuna. Anglers can expect bottom fishing to be good throughout the year.
All fishing trips are specialized and must always be booked well in advance to ensure availability and maximum opportunity for success.

What People Are Saying
Many thanks to Carl from John X Safaris for his awesome hospitality and genuine friendship! Dominic and I would also like to thank our awesome PH, Rusty and Martin for their exceptional service and keen eyes. Finally thanks to Aaron and Garrett from Gunwerks for inviting us and providing such exceptional guns. Thanks Boyz!~ Peter Corrado '15 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...."
Tack alla för en spännande jakt, utsökt mat och boende, samt underbara naturupplevelser. Ett speciellt tack till Greg och Bless, och naturligtvis till min jaktkamrat och mentor Leif. Vi far absolut inte glömma bort Gregs underbara små hundar, de var riktiga charmkoll.~ Goran Plomgren '15 from
"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!"
"Being part of the John X team was a privilege once again. Always having fun and hunting some good animals. Thank you Carl and the John X Team. I will be back!"~ Bjorn Hagman '13 from Sweden
I want to thank Carl and the entire staff (Greg, Bless, Joseph, & Aneri) for taking care of me during my stay with John X Safaris. This was truly a life/game changing trip that I will treasure forever. Look forward to seeing y'all again.~ Chris Perdomo '15 from
