Hunting experience at John X Safaris: South Africa is one of the most exciting countries in the world to hunt. It offers a diverse combination of landscapes, vegetation, and wildlife, together making this country a unique hunting destination for the first time hunter to Africa. The Malaria Free Eastern Cape offers the finest hunting in the country with over forty different species available to hunt. This is more than anywhere else in Africa. We exclusively hunt on a wide range of terrain that spans vast semi-arid desert, dense coastal bush, mountains and open savannah. We have access to over 3 million acres of privately owned land and game reserves, including over 700,000 acres of free range areas, bearing forth the high standard in trophy quality. With over forty different species available to our hunters, and many occurring in a variety of habitats, we have found the need to establish camps within selected areas. This often allows our hunters to enjoy more than one area on the same safari, while ensuring we achieve the very best in trophy quality. South Africa is a great destination for the first time hunter to Africa, but it offers so much more than that. For the second and third time hunter, it allows you time to hunt and explore the smallest of antelope in our forests, to our majestic plains and our breath taking mountains.
