Blesbok in South Africa can be found throughout the country and are bred extensively on private game farms as their meat is sought after by local hunters. They originally occurred in a large area in the central part of South Africa, highveld plains and other grass veld plains in colder climates. Nowadays due to extensive game farming, selling, breeding, reselling, and resettling of these antelope, they are widely distributed, even occurring in the bushveld which is not their natural habitat. There are no Blesbok in the Kruger National Park but they can be found in some of the other national parks.
