With the first group of Gunwerks gunners headed back across the ocean we were in full stride ready to pick up on the high standards they had set over the course of their eight days in Africa. The teams were now in full stride. Any refreshing with the system that may have been needed was […]Continue Reading

“A single day in Africa compares to the experience of an entire year anywhere else on the planet when it comes to long-range hunting.” I’m no expert on the subject of long-range rifles, for that I have my good friends, Aaron Davidson and Garrett Wall from Gunwerks to fall back on, but I can tell […]Continue Reading

What People Are Saying
"I can't say that my time in Africa was the trip of my lifetime, because I'll be back. It was more than I expected and truly a dream come true. Carl, you and your entire staff were beyond energetic, like I have never seen before. your enthusiasm was surpassed by none. Thanks again!"~ Dave Kjelstrup '12 from USA
"Everything was great. Top three hunts ever. I will be back!"~ Martin Osthulm '13 from
"My Safari far exceeded my expectations!!! Rusty was awesome! I had the time of my life. I can think of many great moments, but sneaking up onto my Nyala and ending up with a Kudu was one of the most exciting moments in my life. The praise can go on, but in short - I will return!!! Staff was great, all the PH’S fun, they worked together for a great hunt and great times."~ Joe Kapaun '13 from
"If you have already been on a safari, you have come to know that it is more than the hunt … much more! On our 6th safari, we had the good fortune to share JXS with our 2 best friends who were on their 1st safari. And what a safari experience it turned out to be. Everything from riding elephants, to fishing, to hunting waterfowl. The highlight of our experience was being able to take a magnificent Blue Duiker from a ground blind. JXS slogan is “Going the Distance” … and they never cease to amaze us … creating a safari experience that is unmatched anywhere."~ Chris & Marie Petersen '13 from USA
"Thank you all for a fantastic first hunting safari. It was a magic week, I will be back!"~ Uno Kristiansson '13 from Sweden
