Balele Hunting Wildlife Conservation

What makes us different?

With over 30 years of hunting African Game animals, we can make your African Hunting Dream come true; come and share with us our dream of managing our Wildlife Heritage.

The Balele Wildlife Management Company specializes in giving you, the International Hunter, a unique opportunity to hunt Africa by becoming an integral part of our controlled wildlife management operations. 

Because you become part of our management operation, we can offer you an affordable hunting safari; by joining us, you assist in taking off game that we would normally have to cull as part of our management strategy.

Our excellent price structure is based on being able to use the venison from the game hunted in our registered game abattoir and processing facility. 

Balele Hunting Wildlife Conservation
This does not mean that you won't have the opportunity to take home the hunting trophy of a life time. We don't limit you taking only non-trophy animals, and don't charge you additional fees when you take that extra special trophy. 

We manage various properties in the Balelesberg area, and have over 20 000 acres of wildlife management area and 2 000 head of game.  These include species like Eland, Blesbuck, Black Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Springbuck, Common Reedbuck, Mountain Reedbuck, Bushpig , Common Duiker, Blue Wildebeast, Impala, Kudu, Nyala, Warthog, Zebra, Waterbuck and Giraffe.

The properties we have access to vary from open undulating mountain grasslands, hillsides to deep river valleys, valley bushveld to indigenous forest.

Balele Wildlife Management Co. is an ideal venue for the hunter looking for ethical fair chase hunting opportunities.  We can facilitate everything from a first time African hunt (for which we specifically cater) to experienced hunters wanting a challenging hunt for traditional plains game in Africa.  We cater for people wanting to more than just hunters, but rather become part of conserving Africa’s Wildlife Heritage.
