Carl van Zyl and his team at John X Safaris are a real class act! They're a second generation outfit based in the East Cape, South Africa, specializing in both plains and dangerous game, with a superb Cape Buffalo hunt at their base Woodlands Safari Estate.  Depending on the game you're looking for, you can hunt from the coastal forests along the Indian Ocean to the unsurpassed beauty of the Great Karoo, and the breath-taking mountains of the north, covering more than 35 species across the entire Eastern Cape. This Malaria Free area offers a diverse combination of landscapes, vegetation and wildlife, together making it a unique hunting destination for the safari enthusiast to Africa. Carl was my choice when I took my daughter Caroline on her first safari, and thereafter many more have joined me, and what a great choice it has been!

Our accomdations vary from personalized comfortable safari-style rustic camps in the north, with a luxurious Safari Manor on our 30 000 acre family owned concession, Woodlands Safari Estate in the south. Both hunters and observers can look forward to being spoiled the African way and enjoy some of the best local cuisine on the African Continent.

Hunting seasons are which time of the year you will find which species to hunt.
