John X Safaris

Have you ever thought about having your next African safari filmed?

Imagine capturing the camaraderie of camp life, the terrain, the joys, and the hardships, those long stalks and the thrill of the hunt. That moment when a sneaky Kudu bull steps into the clearing across the ravine, only to be met by a well placed shot from your favorite rifle. The thought of sharing the emotion of seeing your very first African sunrise and then being able to share that with family and friends back home.

    The John X Safaris staff are simply incredible. From the hunting to the accommodations. I just don’t see how it can be topped. This was my 2nd trip, I know there will be a 3rd.

    John X Safaris came highly recommended to us, so we had high expectations for this hunt. Martin and company far exceeded those in every way imaginable. It was a trip of a lifetime! Thanks again.

    This was my first trip to Africa and I certainly hope that it won’t be my last. The hunting was outstanding with challenging hikes and stalks as we looked to achieve a high standard of game hunted. The food and fellowship in the evenings are all part of the many stories and memories I’ll take home with me as I long to return once again. Until next time!

    The African experience is truly an amazing one and one I never thought I would embark on annually. The friendships, hunts and excursions were beyond belief. Our PH, Greg, provided us with an unforgettable time. I’m so glad to have been able to team up with John X Safaris as they are the best of the best.

    This was our first hunt with John X Safaris and it’s been fun. We’ve loved Woodlands and the staff have been amazing. The customer service here has been nothing short of outstanding catering to all our needs each and every day. The hunting has been incredible with our team of Martin and Thandi who worked together seamlessly and shared many great experiences. Our time here has been a welcomed break from the normal hustle and bustle of everyday life. We are very much looking forward to a return trip in the future.

    It’s not often you get two adventures in one trip. Being the first to go on safari after Covid and the 2-day odyssey getting there was something. It was only topped by the unreal adventure of hunting Woodlands Safari Estate and the entire John X Crew. Incredible people, an amazing experience. I will be coming back for more!

  • Michael Gregory
    Spectacular doesn't cover it.  The food was consistently excellent, and the service was over the top.  Every member of your team couldn't do enough for us.  The quality of the hunting was excellent, but the service and attention to detail made it the best lodge experience we've ever had.  You have a fantastic family business and the culture you have created is enviable.  Thanks so much for welcoming my family into the John X family and I look forward to many more hunts together over the years.

    I travelled from Texas in search of something indescribable, in search of a sensation. I found such a sensation with John X Safaris. The rugged beauty of the land and the abundance of challenging world class game was second only to the hospitality of the staff and the amenities at Woodlands Safari Estate. I thank you dearly for the experience and camaraderie. The sensation of South Africa and John X Safaris is now part of me, and for that I am truly humbled and forever grateful.

    What an epic adventure.  First time here and definitely not my last!  Could not be more impressed by John X Safaris.  Stix put me on several great animals and was a pleasure to hunt with.  I am looking forward to our next adventure.

  • Kirk Haverkamp
    There are three words that come to mind after this amazing adventure.  Integrity, Professionalism and Excellence.  All three of which hold true from the amazing first-class lodge staff, the PH's, and trackers and skinners.  This was a hunt of a lifetime made possible by my PH, Greg and Tracker, Bless.  I look forward to our next adventure, sooner rather than later. See you all again soon!

    John X Safaris is an extraordinary place that offers much more than hunting.  It's a place for connecting with friends and family, amazing adventures, unique cultural experiences and friendships that will last a lifetime.  South Africa will forever have a piece of our hearts and we look forward to coming back.

    What an awesome life experience!  Jay had such a wonderful hunting experience with a great PH, Martin and Tracker, Thandi.  The magnificence of the animals was beyond belief. Thanks to the staff at both the southern and northern camps for making my stay as a non-hunter a memorable one.  We are fondly looking forward to a return trip in the future.

    My entire life I have dreamed of going on an African safari.  I took the plunge and booked my trip of a lifetime with John X Safaris.  The expertise by my PH, Dave, and Tracker, Shoota, in finding world class animals in the vast landscape was nothing short of unbelievable.  I have hunted my entire life but have placed this hunt at the top of my list.

  • Cole & Kelsey Watts
    Our time in the Eastern Cape has been a dream.  It will be a trip to reflect on for years to come.  Dave, Shoota, and Dusty were top notch, and we consider ourselves blessed to have had the opportunity to hunt with them.  Their knowledge, skill, work ethic, and dedication to the hunt were outstanding.  It was amazing to share Kelsey's first big game kill with our new friends!

    The John X Safaris motto reads, "May you enter as guests and leave as friends". Carl, Trish, Lee, PH's and the rest of the John X Safaris crew went above and beyond to deliver on this motto.  Our time spent with them was full of laughter and smiles filled with new memories created each day.  Thank you, John X Safaris, for a truly amazing experience.
