Welcome to the John X Safaris website!
Hunting - South Africa
South Africa is one of the most exciting countries in the world to hunt. Bigger than France and Spain combined, South Africa offers exotic and diverse combinations of landscapes, vegetation and wildlife that together make this country a unique hunting destination.
The Eastern Cape and Karoo, both Malaria free areas, offer the finest hunting in the country with over 40 species of trophies available. This is more than anywhere else in Africa. In South Africa you are not limited by hunting seasons, but we prefer our seasons run from early March through late October. During these months the Eastern Cape boasts a moderate climate, making for comfortable hunting conditions and allowing those non-hunters to take part in the many extra activities available to them. We have access to over 3 million acres of privately owned land and game reserves bearing forth the high standards in trophy quality, which is documented in the record books. We believe that all hunters have their own idea and dream of hunting Africa; it is therefore only fair that each hunter customizes his/her own hunt. For this reason, John X Safaris does not offer any package hunts, which at times forces the hunter to pay for trophies in a package that he/she may not be interested in.
South Africa is a great destination for the first time hunter to Africa, but it offers so much more than that. For the second and third time hunter, it allows you time to hunt and explore the smallest of antelope in our forest, to our majestic plains and our breath taking mountains. John X Safaris welcomes all hunters, no matter what your age, physical condition or hunting capabilities. We invite you to join us on our daily rate hunts and come with an idea, but leave us with great memories and even more than what you had imagined. To minimize travel times, clients will spread their time between Base Camp near Port Elizabeth on the Coast, our Nothern Camps in the Karoo and our Eastern Mountainous Camp between the Winterberg and Stormberg Ranges.
