Professional Hunter Request
Our team in Mozambique is a complete separate unit, operating only within Mozambique. From past experience we’ve had numerous requests for particular Professional Hunters (PH), from the hunters’ previous safari in South Africa, to guide/join him/her on their Mozambican hunt. This can be arranged at an extra charge of the flight from Port Elizabeth - Beira - Port Elizabeth for that particular PH.
Please Note - While your South African licensed PH can join you on your Mozambican hunt, he can at no time solely guide you; a registered Mozambican Professional Hunter will always be present together with your South African Professional Hunter, ensuring optimum success for your safari.
The tipping of trackers, camp staff and PH's must always be done in USD$ cash, as staff are often unable to exchange checks.
IF you wish - Tips can be added to the final bill of the safari and tallied to your Safari total.
Check with your Professional Hunter what the norm is on tipping and at all times keep in mind a tip is a bonus greatly appreciated, but not expected.

In the event of a client canceling a safari less than 6 months prior to the commencement date the safari, the deposit will be forfeited if the dates cannot be rescheduled to alternate dates within the same season, or the following season.

"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
"Rusty, my PH, was excellent and loves to hunt. He worked very hard to fill my needs. He communicates well and has an excellent personality. Lauren and her staff were 'over the top' accommodating to guest needs. Food and presentation was great as was the field lunches. Both lodges were beautiful. It was good to experience both locations. All the PH's got along well and were well coordinated. I must also comment that the communication from Trish and Carl was immediately responsive at all times.
Thanks again John X Safaris. God Bless"
