As we celebrate the arrival of the new year, refreshed and ready for what will be another memorable season, it doesn’t take much looking around to realize the world is looking more beautiful than ever. The condition of the game, including the hundreds, if not thousands of young, are in prime condition.
The latter stages of 2014 provided much-needed rainfall, but since then it has not stopped – neither does it look to be dissipating anytime soon. This in turn means our areas have enjoyed wonderful summer conditions, leaving the country side greener and lusher than before.
Hunters joining us this season can look forward to world-class hunting, with many of the older animals, the trophies we’re after, looking better and better by the day.
Those whom have not made up your minds about your next African hunt, feel free to drop us a line or meet with us at one of our stops across North-America during Jan/Feb. Here’s a quick reminder of where we’ll be and which shows we’ll be attending.

Furthermore we’d like to remind all of our “#Getting the Youth Hunting at John X Safaris”. As with previous years, we’d like to once again challenge parents/guardians of youths under the age of 18 to get them off the couch and into the field. John X Safaris will once again be sponsoring the day fees of any minor joining his/her parent/guardian on any of our 10 day safaris. Come on folks – let them work for their airfare and you spoil them with a couple of trophies/visa versa. In today’s world you need to get away to reconnect – no better place than a hunting trip to Africa.
May it be a trip to the East Cape of South Africa to enjoy our renowned camps and areas, or a return safari to either Namibia, Mozambique, Cameroon, or Botswana – we have the areas, expertise, abundance of game, and world-class field crews to turn your dream safari into a reality.
Enjoy the booking season – it’s the first step in your journey of going on safari. Don’t be afraid to ask the questions you have in mind and remember Africa is a continent and not a county – the possibilities are endless…
Yours in hunting,
Carl Van Zyl
