Experience Overview

Thank you for considering our Gunwerks Long Range East Cape Experience in South Africa with John X Safaris. In order to maximize your experience with us we have included some useful information below to help you plan for your trip.

Our 2021 Africa Long Range East Cape Experience will be hosted by our friends and long-time Gunwerks supporter at John X Safaris. Taxidermy services will be provided by Splitting Image Taxidermy.

Gunwerks is taking booking and reservations for 2020. See below for a list of waivers, documentation, and a schedule of fees for the event, or feel free to call us any time to discuss in detail. Between travel, accommodations and trophy fees, you can anticipate spending in the neighborhood of $20K. See the John X Safaris rate sheet here.

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.

Traveling to Africa to hunt for the first time can seem intimidating. We've been doing this trip for years and have it down to a science. See a list of frequently asked questions here.

You'll need to book your flights into and out of Port Elizabeth International Airport (PLZ). If you have any questions on specific arrival times, what to bring, etc. feel free to contact Gunwerks or John X Safaris any time.

Gunwerks can also help with the logistics of traveling with your firearm. PLEASE NOTE: ONLY South African Airways (SAA) / South African Express (SA Express) carry firearms domestically in South Africa. Double check when booking with either of these airlines that you are on a listed SAA / SA Express flight AND NOT a shared carrier flight. Most international flights will have layovers in Johannesburg, South Africa.
