For those who enjoy fishing as much as hunting, there is great fun for all just off our coast in the Indian Ocean. Take a day off from hunting and travel a mere 45 minutes from Base Camp to Kenton on Sea. From Kenton, you will experience a beach launch, an exhilarating run through the breakers and a day of fishing sensation.
We offer both bottom fishing and deep sea trolling giving the angler the option of fishing along our rugged coast or traveling out to the warm Mozambican current. While bottom fishing, anglers will mostly target; Cape Salmon, Red Roman, Scotchman, Cape Stump nose, Sand Fish, Cob and Black Mussel Cracker.
On weather permitting days, trips to the Islands in search of Yellow Tail Tuna for a day of trolling is a must. May thru July is the best time for Yellow Fin Tuna, and August thru October, the best for Yellow Tail Tuna. Anglers can expect bottom fishing to be good throughout the year.
All fishing trips are specialized and must always be booked well in advance to ensure availability and maximum opportunity for success.

What People Are Saying
"I had a great experience and spent time with a professional, knowledgeable, and capable guide. I did not think a second safari was on the cards, but after being here with Juan MacDonald and the John X staff I will be back again.
"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!!!"
"My man Rusty – he is awesome! The best!"~ Peter Corrado '13 from
Once again, I want to thank you for an adventure of a lifetime. My recent hunting experience in Africa with John X Safaris far exceeded my dreams and expectations. The professionalism that you and your staff exhibited and the camaraderie I felt during my visit is beyond measure. I want to thank Ross (Stix) for his guiding expertise. He truly knows how to make a client happy. I want to thank our videographer, Pierre (Ozzie) for his expertise. It is remarkable what he sees and I cannot wait to watch the hunt in its entirety. I also want to thank the trackers and staff. My trip was very organized from the moment I landed in Johannesburg to the time I departed Port Elizabeth. Carl, I am looking forward to seeing you all again next year for another adventure with John X Safaris. I am sure to recommend your Safaris to my family and friends. Again, thank you.~ Freddie Seeds '15 from USA
"... 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
"The hunting was superb and the trophies excellent. Greg and Bless are the best team I have hunted with in Africa. The food and accommodation at Oude Kraal and Lalibela were brilliant, thanks to Lauren and Charmaine, and Pam and I loved our 10 days in the Cape Province."~ Max King '14 from
