~ Paul Brisso '12 from USA

"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

"I had a great hunt with outstanding accommodations. I took great trophies in both the coastal and Karoo areas. My PH, Mike Currie, did a great job locating and judging the animal. His stalking skills go unmatched. I will have lots of memories of this hunt."
