Tsala Hunting Safaris

Tsala meaning friend in Tswana, is what we are all about. You arrive as a stranger and leave as a friend. "Strangers are just friends waiting to happen."

The main property (10 000 acres) is situated in the temperate malaria free area of the Waterberg region in the Limpopo Province of South Africa just a 2 hour drive from OR Tambo International Airport. The area is typical of the Waterberg region with beautiful mountainsides, rivers, streams and some flat savannah areas. The emphasis on sustainable usage of our natural resources with moral and ethical hunting as our cornerstone. 

The Ranch is family run and owned by the Nel family.

We have added two hunting areas that we are very excited about...

Our hunting area in Zimbabwe is privately owned property in Gwayi bordering the Hwange National Park. With an approximate size of 500 000 acres. Dangerous and Plains game roam freely between the two. This provides top quality free range hunting. A paradise for hunting within the borders of Zim.

It also provides ample opportunity for activities like Tiger fishing and sight seeing as the Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi River is a mere 3 hour drive.

In Mozambique we have hunting rights to a 60 000 acre, free range (no external/internal fences) in the Gaza Province. With main animals; Buffalo, exceptional plains game, Lion and Hyena.

Just imagine sitting around the campfire experiencing her perfect solitude - telling old hunting stories and making your own. The smell of the bushveld, the silence of nature and a beautiful sunset is calling you.  

You will not be disappointed!
