Safari Balls (Japanese: サファリボール) are a special type of Poké Ball in the Pokémon games used in the Safari Zone and Great Marsh.

Despite being used in the Safari Zone and Great Marsh, it is usually unavailable as an inventory item in the main series. It uses a multiplier of 1.5x in the catch rate calculation.

In Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow, the amount of Safari Balls held is not shown in the inventory, however using a Safari Ball will still decrease the number of Safari Balls held (as expected, regardless of whether the capture was successful or not).

Safari Balls do not exist as inventory items in Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal.
