What People Are Saying

"Carl--Mozambique! What a magnificent place to share with you. Heat, bugs, smoke from grass burning to renew the cycle of life-sustaining new growth. Native huts and gardens with people living much as they did 200-300 years ago. But the same John X, dedication to a great hunting experience and the same quality trophies that I found with you in South Africa. It was truly an experience I will remember for the rest of my life.
Thanks!"

~ Paul A. Brisso '13 from USA

"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

"This was the hunt of a lifetime and something I will never forget. I have never been treated so nicely and had so much fun. The folks at John X Safaris are the most professional I have dealt with.
You are all the BEST!!!"

~ Kathy & Steve Straight '13 from

"I wanted to express my deep appreciation to you and your staff for making my first African Safari a HUGE success! Your staff, the accommodations, food and hunts were first class! My PH, Louwrens Lombard, was fantastic and I enjoyed our time together. His experience and skill allowed me to take the trophies I desired. This was my first trip to South Africa, it will not be my last and I will one day soon visit old friends at John X again."

~ Jay Pippin '14 from

"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

"Some experiences impact you for the rest of your life. This father and son safari was definitely one of them. The bonding we had is irreplaceable. We each had our sights set on various species and the trophies we’re taking home have surpassed our wildest dreams. "Crums Man" you will not find a better PH/Tracker combo than Greg and Bless - They made everyday a new adventure with new friends. Thanks to everyone at John X Safaris for making this dream come true."
