John X Safaris has hosted the Gunwerks crew for several years in a row. This is the trip we look forward to every year! We've got a few limited spots available for 2020.

Kudu Exclusive and Kudu Classic:

Nestled in the hills on the boundary of the Transkei, between the Great Kei and Kubusi Rivers, lies an area few have ever heard of, and even fewer have hunted. For generations, it has been the secret of the locals who have safe-guarded this little known region to the outside world. To them, there’s nothing that compares to the Cape Bushbuck, and the pursuit of these shy forest dwellers. The sheer numbers and quality is something very few outsiders have ever experienced let alone afforded the opportunity to hunt these Bushbuck in their slice of paradise.

Over the years Kudu numbers have risen and what at first was seen as a rarity has flourished into a stable Kudu population over the past two decades. The lay of the land, characterized by heavy wooded gorges and valleys, with limited access, have seen the rise of the Kudu quality like few have ever seen. Bulls living in the back valleys with little to zero human contact have enjoyed a minimum of ten years without any hunting pressure. The thought alone will leave even the most discerning hunter grasping at his binoculars in awe of these monsters on their home turf.

Never before had Kudu tags been issued for the free-ranging areas of the region until 2019. 6 Lucky Gunwerks Hunters joined John X Safaris for the opening season and walked away with something that could be compared to the stuff of legend.

For 2020 John X Safaris have secured 3 Exclusive (Trophy) Kudu tags, and 5 Classic (Management) Kudu tags going along with the Bushbuck, Nyala, Eland and a host of quality plains game in the region. This 7 day hunt will be hosted by John X Safaris & Gunwerks as we invite a handful of hunters joining us on this opportunity of a lifetime for what has been dubbed “The Greatest Kudu Hunt on Earth.” See more details and rate sheet or give us a call to discuss: (307) 296-7301.

Shot Of a Lifetime

During June I had the privilege of hunting with my good friend, Carl van Zyl, in the East Cape, for my annual trip to the Dark Continent with John X Safaris. Carl had first introduced me to Gunwerks during 2015, and ever since then we’ve enjoyed numerous successful hunts with my Gunwerks 6.5 x 284. Early on our second day of my safari we spotted a great Gemsbuck feeding 900+ yards away.

We stalked up a valley, using some dead ground, until finally we couldn’t go any further without being detected. Carl ranged the feeding Gemsbuck at 683 yards. We dialed the scope and allowed for a 1 min cross wind from west to east. At the crack of the shot my bull dropped and rolled down an embankment, coming to rest where we found him. I could not have made the shot without my Gunwerks rifle – What an experience! Thanks again to the entire crew at Gunwerks for setting me up with my gun and to Carl for helping me make the shot of a lifetime. #GunWerked
