When planning your safari to South Africa, you may find family, friends, or spouses, wanting to join you on your safari, either as observers or travelers themselves. Over the years we have found that many observers are fanatical hunters, but prefer not always pulling the trigger or spending every day out in the field. For this reason John X Safaris offers exclusive tours. For a FREE DVD highlighting many of the great touring opportunities available before or after your Safari please email: Dave@johnxsafaris.com
Our exclusive luxury tours are offered within the Eastern and Western Cape, providing our clients the very best personalized service, starting from the planning stages of your tour and continuing throughout your time in South Africa. We pride ourselves on our flexibility, providing you with numerous options to tailor make your dream vacation.
Choose from either day-trip activities surrounding our hunting areas, or multiple day adventures down the Garden Route and onto Cape Town, or vice versa. All trips and tours are designed to generate a deeper appreciation for the natural beauty, abundant scenery, historical rich-culture, and spectacular wildlife, all along indulging in the best adventure activities South Africa has to offer.
John X Safaris will plan all pre and post hunt tours, including day-trips surrounding our hunting areas as to best combine both hunting and day-trips. Once you’ve booked your hunt and decided that you would like to include a tour or day-trip, please contact Dave at Dave@johnxsafaris.com.
To better help you determine what touring best suits you please contact us for a FREE non-hunting tour DVD at Dave@johnxsafaris.com.
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful country!

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

We look forward to returning again and again."~ Chad & Jennifer Fraughton '13 from
"Jonathan gave me the best time ever. Carl has been so great and friendly. I will never forget this journey. It feels so sad that I have to go home now. I'll be back next year. Thank you so much Jono. You brought so much fun and experience into the hunt. You gave me a memory for a lifetime. Thank you everyone!"~ Mikael Wallenstam '12 from
"Our African experience have left us with a lifetime of memories. Our ranger Kelly went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we saw all of the animals. The food was fine dining at it's best. We also want to thank Carl for our hunts of a lifetime! His hunting experience is world class, so was the hospitality he showed us. We loved it 100% ...... Perfect!"~ Randall & Cherie De Freece '12 from USA
"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"
"On my third trip to S.Africa I once again hunted with my great PH Juan MacDonald. A friend once told me: "You can take my wife, but never take my PH or my toothbrush." That says a little bit what a good PH means. This year’s trophies were Zebra, Blesbuck, Mountain Reedbuck and I also got my second of the tiny ten, a beautiful Steenbuck. I really want to thank all of the wonderful staff who took care of us in the camps."~ Thomas Nyden '13 from
