What People Are Saying

"Had a Great Time! Hope to return soon"

~ Tom Lincoln '14 from

"Great effort by all, you made a great safari experience! The extra work combined with truly exceptional access to hunting land was magnificent, but the real "icing on the cake" was the great fun, laughter and camaraderie with the team. I feel like we came as strangers and leave as friends, and all this for a beginner! Thanks for the patience ..."

~ Alex Good '12 from USA

"One of the best hunting experiences of our lives! Greg's expertise is greatly appreciated, his knowledge of both game, flora and fauna was truly exceptional. Greg made our first trip to Africa a true trip of a lifetime."

~ Norm & Karen Amstrup '12 from USA

"Our 1st Trip to John X Safaris and it will not be our last!"

~ Randal Spence & Emily Belue '13 from

"Juan did an excellent job as PH and Steven worked hard as tracker and skinner. Top quality accommodations, friendly atmosphere and Willem was a great host. John X showed me again that they are a 1st class operation. Many thanks to Carl, Gary and all the staff for a job well done!"

~ Jim Haselberger '12 from USA

"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."
