HEALTH PRECAUTIONS

Malaria

All of John X Safari's hunting areas in South Africa are Malaria-free.

Note that our area in Mozambique is a Malaria area. All clients must ensure the necessary preventative precautions are taken before your arrival. Please consult your local doctor regards Malaria medication.

No inoculations are required for travelers visiting Southern Africa, we do however advise clients to ensure that their tetanus shots are up to date.

General Precautions

We recommend you visit your doctor before leaving on safari if you have any permanent health issues. Bring along extra prescription drugs if required.

All our hunting vehicles and camps are set up with full first aid kits for minor field injuries. We do however recommend bringing along a general antibiotic and basic medication for headaches, colds, and flu and stomach ailments.

Please ensure you have an extra pair of glasses or sufficient contact lenses if required. Dark glasses are recommended for early mornings and late afternoons when the sun can be at a very uncomfortable height. Dark glasses also act as a form of eye protection when traveling on open vehicles.

We recommend bringing along a good sun block of at least SPF 30, as the African sun is something to take seriously.

If you have any doubts about medical issues, check with your local doctor or travel clinic. As neither may be fully conversant with the different African regions always use John X Safaris as a backup as well.

Liability & Travel Insurance

Although every possible precaution is taken to safeguard you and your property, John X Safaris accepts no liability for any accidental injury or illness that you may incur or loss or damage to your property during or after your safari. Ensure that you have medical insurance to cover any medical assistance you may require while on safari with John X Safaris.

"A magnificent experience! Stix was an exceptional PH. Amazing diversity and the quality of game was second to none. Carl & John X Safaris provided me an experience of a lifetime!"

~ Sam Cunningham '14 from

"If you have already been on a safari, you have come to know that it is more than the hunt … much more! On our 6th safari, we had the good fortune to share JXS with our 2 best friends who were on their 1st safari. And what a safari experience it turned out to be. Everything from riding elephants, to fishing, to hunting waterfowl. The highlight of our experience was being able to take a magnificent Blue Duiker from a ground blind. JXS slogan is “Going the Distance” … and they never cease to amaze us … creating a safari experience that is unmatched anywhere."

~ Chris & Marie Petersen '13 from USA

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.

"We were here 2 years ago and had so much fun we wanted to come back with friends. This time there were six of us. The hunting was great and the hospitality was even better than I remember. When you come on a John X Safari you are treated like royalty. Thanks again."
