What People Are Saying
"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."~ Larry & Rita Heim '13 from

You are all the BEST!!!"
"We had a wonderful time and staff was awesome! Our stay was amazing and made lots of special memories. We will certainly recommend this place to others! Everyone was always friendly and courteous and so willing to make our stay perfect. The food was amazing, we never went hungry. The game drives were exciting, seeing all the different animals & getting our photos!
Thank you again!"

"Words cannot express the amazing, incredible, awesome experience I've had. My PH, Greg, and tracker, Bless, were brilliant. I learned so much from both of them. I thank them for sharing their knowledge. The animals were vast and stunning. So many! I almost learned how to spot them and know what they were! John X Safaris does such an excellent job with all aspects of the trip - From the hunting, the service, the accommodations, the food, and the game drives. I did not have one bad day or even one bad minute. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart."~ Cari Smith '14 from
