There is a daily laundry service except for the days of arrival/departure and days away at spike camp, very seldom more than 1-2 nights.

What People Are Saying
"The hunting was superb and the trophies excellent. Greg and Bless are the best team I have hunted with in Africa. The food and accommodation at Oude Kraal and Lalibela were brilliant, thanks to Lauren and Charmaine, and Pam and I loved our 10 days in the Cape Province."~ Max King '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
"We had a great time hunting with John X Safaris. Very well run with excellent PH’s and trackers. We would recommend John X Safaris to anyone. Enjoyed fantastic scenery. Thank You."~ Kevin & Laurel Ward '13 from
"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!!!"
"I had an amazing time hunting my Kudu, Zebra and Ostrich with my friend, Carl."
Hunter (age 13 at the time)
"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!"
