Free Range Big Game Hunting in South Africa

Crusader Safaris hunts 50 000 acres of private, free range land in the Greater Kruger Conservancy, in South Africa’s Lowveld. No fences separate the hunting area from the World famous Kruger National Park, a total of over 8 million unfenced acres. The vegetation in this pristine wilderness area is a mixture of thick riverine forest, Mopani woodlands and open savannah. A luxury rustic safari camp with private chalets and a great African atmosphere ensures comfortable accommodation.

Buffalo & Elephant Hunting in Balule

The Buffalo hunt is a 7-day hunt and can be easily combined with some plains game hunting in either the Umkomaas or Baviaansriver areas.

The Balule sets a very conservative quota each year considering the Buffalo and Elephant populations. Over the years we have experienced 100% success on all our hunts. The genetics in the are known to be the best in Africa, this together with age class restrictions guarantees that all bulls are old hard bossed trophies.
