At John X Safaris we pride ourselves on our high percentage of repeat clientele. For many it was their first trip to Africa, to some it was a return for a dangerous game safari, and for others it may have been an annual visit to camp.

Below are a few of our hunters who we’ve guided over the past three decades. Please feel free to contact any one of them about John X Safaris, and if you may require anymore references, please contact us directly at, as we can pass on a couple of hundred more.

What People Are Saying

"For years I have heard many stories describing Africa. They were all wrong. The descriptions of the country, the experience and the scenery fell far short of the actual experience. I was moved emotionally and spiritually with the pure beauty of the country and fell in love with the passion of the people. Although this was our first trip, it will in no way be our last."

~ Mark Motley '14 from

"... John X Safaris is truly a great safari operation. I have nothing but good things to say. The accommodations, food, lodge staff and most of all the quality of game are second to none."

~ Tony White '12 from USA

"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."

"I can't say that my time in Africa was the trip of my lifetime, because I'll be back. It was more than I expected and truly a dream come true. Carl, you and your entire staff were beyond energetic, like I have never seen before. your enthusiasm was surpassed by none. Thanks again!"

~ Dave Kjelstrup '12 from USA

"Our 2014 reunion tour was much more than I dreamed of. The John X team members all went way above their positions to make me feel like family. From the quality of trophies harvested, the fantastic meals, and great accommodations to the camaraderie in the evenings, everything was perfect. A very special thank you to my PH, Stix, his patience and encouragement in helping me harvest extremely nice mature trophies will never be forgotten."

~ Dave Moser '14 from

"It was fantastic to return to the Dark Continent in 2014 by way of John X Safaris in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Carl, Etresia, Greg, Bless and the entire JXS staff created a fantastic adventure for me. From the Waterbuck that was so large that I named him the "Battleship Texas" to my last and favourite stalk of the hunt on a beautiful Eastern Cape Kudu, my hunting experience was "First Cabin" in every respect."
