What People Are Saying

"I had a great hunt with outstanding accommodations. I took great trophies in both the coastal and Karoo areas. My PH, Mike Currie, did a great job locating and judging the animal. His stalking skills go unmatched. I will have lots of memories of this hunt."

~ Dwight Moser '14 from

"We can’t express ourselves enough, the gratitude towards everyone. Carl, Juan, the staff - such warm hearted people. Not only to mention our hunts were more than we dreamed it to be. Many thanks to everyone, new friends and memories to last a life time."

~ Dennis & Nan Roberg '13 from

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

~ Jay & Evelyn Coffelt '13 from

"What a spectacular adventure we had in the Eastern Cape and the Karoo with John X Safaris. Years from now, as an old man, I can’t wait to gather my grandchildren around and tell them of my wild adventures in South Africa. I’ll tell them about my legendary P.H., the incredible accommodations, the unmatched hospitality, the breathtaking views, and the most stunning animals I’ve ever seen. It was a trip for the ages!"

~ Jason Nelsen '14 from

"Juan did an excellent job as PH and Steven worked hard as tracker and skinner. Top quality accommodations, friendly atmosphere and Willem was a great host. John X showed me again that they are a 1st class operation. Many thanks to Carl, Gary and all the staff for a job well done!"

~ Jim Haselberger '12 from USA

Had the most unbelievable Vaal Rhebuck hunting adventure, Stix and the crew worked beyond what can be expected to find, stock and harvest this quality animal. I will always have this hunt in my memory as I do not think it can be easily equaled again, except by Stix, Carl and the crew from John X Safaris. I consider everyone at John X Safaris quality individuals and my friends. Hopefully I will be able to join them in the future again!
