Experience Overview

The guys at John X Safaris run a top quality program with excellent facilities, a great crew, and incredible hunting opportunities and animal quality. Hunt options include 1:1 or 2:1 with or without observer/s. Their professional hunters are familiar and well-trained with the Gunwerks shooting system affording you numerous real-time opportunities on a number of hunting scenarios.. 

This 8-day East Cape Experience will provide anyone from the long range novice to the seasoned expert with excellent hunting and a one-of-a-kind long range hunting experience. Hunting here in South Africa's East Cape is fast and eventful with more variety of game animals than almost anywhere on the planet. You'll get 8 years worth of long range hunting experience packed into 8 incredible days.


With over forty different species available to hunters, from the tiniest Blue Duiker to the largest antelope in Africa, the Cape Eland, all occurring in a variety of habitats, John X Safaris have found the need to establish camps within the moister southern and drier northern regions of the East Cape. This allows hunters to enjoy the variety of a single/multi-area hunt on the same safari, while ensuring the very best in trophy quality.
