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
"Thank you again for a wonderful experience. Botswana was spectacular, Linda and Clive were wonderful hosts and their staff was professional and very helpful. John and Thomas had a great time hunting and I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures - our driver even showed me how to pick truffles! Every day we saw noteworthy animals and the guys got the trophies they were after. As for us, this was our 7th trip with John X and surely will not be our last. Thanks again, and until next time!"~ Lynn & John Nowlin '14 from
"Stix and I had a great time chasing trophy kudu throughout the Karoo and coastal range. Thanks so much for the fantastic kudu we finally got at Willow Fountain! I will be back for more spiral horn hunts!"~ Paul Latchford '14 from
"I thought I was going on safari to ride an elephant and be able to cross that experience off my bucket list. Indeed, I can successfully cross it off! But with JXS, I experienced so much more that made my African adventure such a memorable one. The hospitality and friendliness of the team, made everyday truly a vacation. The sights and sounds of the wild, the animals, birds and game made the photo opportunities terrific. I came to ride an elephant, I left with memories, my first trophy and an unforgettable experience."~ Mike & Cindi McNair '13 from USA
"This was an amazing experience, far from what I expected. The staff was great and the food was excellent. Our PH Ty showed us a great time on our adventures in the bush, they were exciting and unbelievable, we cant wait for our next safari!"~ Casey Fairchild '14 from
Memories of crawling through thorn bushes, mud and laying on ant piles waiting for a huge horned animal to step out into the clearing. Taking numerous magnificent trophies and hanging out with the great members of John X Safaris and Gunwerks team will be memories that last. The nightly stories with the gang were awesome. Keep doing what you do... Trevor Krueger - Gunwerks~ Trevor Kruger '15 from USA
"This was the hunt of a lifetime and something I will never forget. I have never been treated so nicely and had so much fun. The folks at John X Safaris are the most professional I have dealt with.
You are all the BEST!!!"
