What People Are Saying
"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!!!"
"Great Hunt. Great Time. Carl is very accommodating. The patience & diligence in selecting trophy animals speaks loudly of the quality hunt that John X & Staff are known for."~ Paul & Sandra Dellva '13 from
"Great effort by all, you made a great safari experience! The extra work combined with truly exceptional access to hunting land was magnificent, but the real "icing on the cake" was the great fun, laughter and camaraderie with the team. I feel like we came as strangers and leave as friends, and all this for a beginner! Thanks for the patience ..."~ Alex Good '12 from USA

"What an adventure for my 12 year old son and myself. Our first safari was incredible. Many thanks to Carl, his staff, and our professional hunter, Stix. They worked patiently with my son and put him into perfect situations. We did not imagine that we would have such great success.
Thank you for the wonderful trophies and unforgettable experience."
