Hunting Areas & Camps - South Africa
John X Safaris hunting areas in South Africa covers three different regions within the Eastern Cape. With over forty different species available to our hunters, and many occurring in a variety of habitats, we have found the need to establish camps within selected areas. This often allows our hunters to enjoy more than one area on the same safari, while ensuring we achieve the very best in trophy quality.
Our Coastal Area is our base. Camp is situated a mere two hour drive from Port Elizabeth, making for comfortable arrival and departure days. Our Northern Area is situated in the Great Karoo, with camps ideally situated for mountain and plains hunting.
Our camps vary from comfortable safari-style homes to small and personal rustic camps in the north, with luxurious lodging on our family owned exclusive Game Reserve in the south. You can look forward to being spoiled, the African way, and enjoy some of the best local cooking South Africa has to offer.
If you have any food/drink preferences or food allergies and dietary requirements, please advise us well in advance. We want to be sure that we are prepared for your stay with us.

What People Are Saying
"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!"
