Balla Balla Safaris South Africa

The owner says

South Africa has long been the most popular hunting destination in Africa, especially for a first-time hunting safari. South Africa shares a special place in the hearts and minds of many hunters and non-hunters alike. South Africa is a multi-ethnic nation and has diverse cultures and languages, with eleven official languages making the Rainbow Nation truly unique among the countries of the world. The world famous Kruger National Park offers some of the best photographic safaris and a trip there should not be missed by hunters or non-hunters. South Africa is one country the hunter can rely on for a fine, hassle free hunting safari.

We have one private reserve in South Africa, Balla-Balla Conservancy, which offers excellent plains game hunting. Our conservancy,
located in Limpopo Province nestled in the heart of the Soutpansberg Mountain Range, just North of Louis Tricahrdt town, is a place all hunters should experience. The conservancy comprises 20,000 acres of majestic mountain range with spectacular views. Developed over 25 years ago this area now boasts over 450 head of Greater Kudu and other species including Baboon, Black Back Jackal, Gray Duiker, Southern Impala, Warthog, Honey Badger, Bushpig, Mountain Reedbuck, Sharps Grysbok, Klipspringer, Blue Wildebeest, Limpopo Bushbuck, Red Hartebeest, Gemsbok, Common Waterbuck, Greater Kudu, Brown Hyena, Nyala, Giraffe, Leopard and more.

The area is privately owned by us and we set our own quotas.

­­­­­­Hunting experience at Balla Balla Safaris: Both South Africa and Balla-Balla offers tremendous opportunities for bow hunters; in fact South Africa might be the best place in all of Africa for plains game. Is legal for hunters to import bows for bow hunting purposes into South Africa and no import permit is required. There are minimum requirements for bow hunting; for big game like buffalo, a bow must deliver a kinetic energy of 80 ft/lbs and have a arrow weight of 700 grain. For medium game like Greater Kudu, a bow with kinetic energy of 70 ft/lbs and a arrow weight of 550 grain is sufficient. Small Game like Southern Impala, a bow with kinetic energy of 40 ft/lbs and a arrow weight of 400 grains will do nicely. Balla-Balla offers tremendous opportunities for bow hunters as we have a verity of specially designed pit hides, elevated hides and pop-up hides.
