Africa… How I have missed you….

February 07, 2017

For six weeks long we have spent numerous days and countless hours trying to share the wonder and beauty of Africa.

Even after all these years it seems the […]Continue Reading

What People Are Saying

"We cannot thank John X Safaris and the amazing staff enough for our wonderful family vacation. Each of us had exactly the experience that we had hoped for and as a family we will remember our trip as an all-time favorite!"

~ The Pitts Family '14 from

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

~ Uno Kristiansson '13 from Sweden

"I thought I was going on safari to ride an elephant and be able to cross that experience off my bucket list. Indeed, I can successfully cross it off! But with JXS, I experienced so much more that made my African adventure such a memorable one. The hospitality and friendliness of the team, made everyday truly a vacation. The sights and sounds of the wild, the animals, birds and game made the photo opportunities terrific. I came to ride an elephant, I left with memories, my first trophy and an unforgettable experience."

~ Mike & Cindi McNair '13 from USA

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 & 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!

The hunting was superb and the trophies excellent. Greg and Bless are the best team I have hunted with and I have hunted for over 60 years. The food and accommodations at John X Safaris were 5 star. Hope to return. Many thanks for a super great hunt.
