“There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot.” - Aldo Leopold
While Africa is the land of abundance, there is always a need for wildlife conservation.
South Africa dubbed the “conservation story” of the 20th century, boasts a proud heritage of bringing threatened species back from the brink of extinction. Who could ignore or forget the dwindling Black Wildebeest, Cape Mountain Zebra, and the most famous of all, Rhino, just to mention a few. If it were not for sustainable value – not one of these species would be where they are today.
In saying this we must recognize and salute the pioneers of the South African wildlife story by picking up the torch and taking wildlife conservation to the next level. While it is important to maintain and ensure sustainability in what has been achieved to date, it is as important to grow. A mission of the John X Foundation is to take on new ventures and continue on the success story we’re so proud to be a part of in South Africa.
The John X Foundation will continue to forge ahead exploring uncharted territory, and dare to be different in South Africa and Mozambique. We actively encourage those hunters so inclined to become more involved in our conservation efforts. Many want to support the John X Foundation by making contributions to causes related to preserving species and furthering their expansion. In some cases there are even opportunities to volunteer for active participation in conservation events while on safari.
For a personalized answer to all your questions with regards to the John X Foundation, please feel free to contact Trish at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be more than glad to assist with contribution options on the most current projects.

"I loved the beach and feeling like a part of the family with the Van Zyl's."
Kasey (age 10 at the time)
This was my fourth trip to Africa and this safari was incomparable in every way. Greg and Bless are true professionals. They are passionate and perfectionist about what they do. They want you to shoot a fine animal as much as you want to. Many thanks to the entire staff.
Best to all and stay well.

"Our family can’t say thank you enough for all the wonderful memories and adventures John X Safaris provided us. Amazing first time hunting experiences for Abby, all of Bo’s animals including his record breaking Kudu, and some exhilarating Cape Town adventures. You have exceptional staff, fantastic accommodations, and truly an amazing game reserve. We enjoyed every minute and can’t wait to begin planning another trip back!"~ The Tripp Family '14 from
"The opportunity to shoot in tough conditions was a perfect learning experience. Carl gave us the shooting and the trophies we were after. The Karoo was just like hunting the west, long shots in the wind were mandatory. The coast was like a different world. Chasing big animals in small clearings and big valleys made awesome TV! Thanks again I cannot wait to be back!"
