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.

Male impala form small bachelor herds during both the wet and dry seasons. These bachelor herds are generally smaller than herds of females, numbering around 4 members, compared to upwards of 10. Juvenile males begin to join bachelor herds at 8 months of age. Within the herds, bachelor males are less territorial toward each other than males in mixed herds. These males maintain, on average, a relatively large distance of approximately 2.5–3 meters (8.2–9.8 ft) between them. However, bachelor males exhibit reciprocal grooming despite occasional aggressive interactions between bachelors.
