HUNTING WITH JOHN X SAFARIS

Hunting with John X Safaris is more than just a hunt - It’s the total safari experience.

It is a journey of discovery, a wakening of the senses, and ultimately the realization of the dream of hunting Africa.

Whether it is your first trip to Africa, a hunt for the big five or the choice of forty different plains game species, we are here to cater to your every need.

The Eastern Cape of South Africa is our base and home. This Malaria Free area offers a diverse combination of landscapes, vegetation and wildlife, together making it a unique hunting destination for the first time hunter to Africa.

Mozambique is our flag ship in southern Africa, making it one of the few areas where one has the opportunity of a true classical big five safari combined with a variety of plains game. If it’s Cape Buffalo you’re after - then this is the hunt for you.

In Zambia we hunt the magnificent Luangwa Valley, while Botswana boasts some of the very best Southern Greater Kudu, Elephant, and Leopard with hounds in the Kalahari Desert.

With over 33 years experience in the Safari industry you can rest assured you are in safe hands when booking a hunt with John X Safaris.

John X Safaris welcomes all hunters, no matter what your age, physical condition or hunting capabilities.

What People Are Saying

"All in all a well run operation with good camps and first class PH’s."

~ Jay & Evelyn Coffelt '13 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
