Kabubi-Kabubi!

November 07, 2017

Ten years have passed since last I visited Tanzania. We hunted the famous Selous Game Reserve on that particular safari, coming away with a host of great animals, most notably the biggest Cape Buffalo hunted in the Selous that year. After that initial hunt, things changed in Tanzania, with the dramatic up listing of rates […]Continue Reading

South Africa’s Musings…

September 21, 2017

By Cherise Ratliff In South Africa, I felt freedom from dates and times. That doesn’t happen very often. At least not in my life. Every day is a somewhat predictable juggle of school starting, and work starting, and meetings starting, and school ending, and work ending, and dinner cooking, and bedtime going. On our recent […]Continue Reading

What People Are Saying

"It was everything we could ever have hoped for or dream of.Our crew comprising of Greg and Bles were amazing, and took great care of us – sharing the many laughs and memories. Thank you again!"

~ Rob & Lashanda Terry '14 from

"It was fantastic to return to the Dark Continent in 2014 by way of John X Safaris in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Carl, Etresia, Greg, Bless and the entire JXS staff created a fantastic adventure for me. From the Waterbuck that was so large that I named him the "Battleship Texas" to my last and favourite stalk of the hunt on a beautiful Eastern Cape Kudu, my hunting experience was "First Cabin" in every respect."

~ Craig Horan '14 from

"The safari was a fantastic experience, well enjoyed with the perfect PH."

~ Benny Fredrickson '12 from USA

"For years I have heard many stories describing Africa. They were all wrong. The descriptions of the country, the experience and the scenery fell far short of the actual experience. I was moved emotionally and spiritually with the pure beauty of the country and fell in love with the passion of the people. Although this was our first trip, it will in no way be our last."

~ Mark Motley '14 from

"No matter how many times we hunt with John X Safari's, each time is a new adventure with world class animals, accommodations and service. We always cherish our time and the memories made with our friends from John X!"

~ Eric & Kristie Arnette '14 from USA

"All in all a well run operation with good camps and first class PH’s."

~ Jay & Evelyn Coffelt '13 from
