I’ve grown up hunting the Eastern Cape my entire life. As a young boy I followed my dad where ever the road less traveled took us. I’ve been fortunate to guide almost every region that could be considered game rich areas and find pride in the fact that John X Safaris evolves each year, always on the lookout for new areas – hoping to find “that” something special that separates a fair area to a good area. We feel confident that after 29 years we know our backyard better than most. That was until now.
As one leaves the lush forests of the coastal belt and travel towards the interior the land becomes increasingly more arid, and game surprisingly abundant. Then you head east for a couple of hours more before setting a northern bearing once again. As the Toyota reaches its cruising speed and civilization gets left behind you find yourself entering a new world.
Hundreds of small villages, all decorated in the brightest pinks, greens and blues jump out of nowhere and you find yourself in the centre of the traditional homelands of the Eastern Cape. Tribal Xhosa kings rule the land here, with subsistence farming being the only means of survival.
After an hour or so you can clearly start hearing the trucks’ engine starting to take strain, the climb to 9000 feet has begun.
John X Safaris has secured exclusive hunting rights to the area, with extremely limited quota. Due to the fact that the area is all free range, one can only hunt this region during open season each year, 1 June – 31 July.
If you’re interested in being one of the VERY FIRST to hunt this new and exclusive area, then send us an email to email@example.com Hunters wishing to add 3 – 5 days hunting this area can do so as a combination between our Coastal, Northern and Mountain Areas.
Don’t be left behind. Be a pioneer. Offers like this don’t crop up every day.
