Alabama Black Belt Adventures (ALBBA) is a non-profit organization committed to promoting outdoor recreation and tourism opportunities in the state’s 23-county Black Belt region, which extends across the state and lies below the Appalachian foothills and above the Coastal Plain. Widely known for its excellent hunting and fishing opportunities, Alabama’s Black Belt also is the site of pivotal civil rights events that forever changed America. The Black Belt region is also rich in other historical and cultural destinations, ranging from elegant antebellum homes to fun-filled river festivals and fascinating museums.

Alabama’s Black Belt gets its name from the dirt — a rich, dark loamy soil whose high fertility produces nutrient-rich vegetation. That, in turn, serves as high-quality habitat for numerous wildlife species, including whitetailed deer. Sportsmen and wildlife managers recognize it as an area that consistently produces great weights and excellent antler characteristics. The Black Belt produces record bucks on a regular basis.

The Black Belt also features superb ground cover and terrain for quail, dove, turkey and duck hunting. To complement the Black Belt’s great hunting, the region’s rivers, ponds and streams lend themselves to bass, crappie and bream fishing.

With more than 50 lodges throughout the Black Belt offering world-class hunting for deer, turkey, quail, dove and more, Alabama Black Belt Adventures has all you need to find the perfect place to plan a hunt with your buddy, a corporate group retreat, or an adventuresome weekend with your family. And the fishing is almost year-round for lunker bass and crappie. When you consider the many historical and cultural attractions also in the area, you’ll realize that the Black Belt has something for everybody.
