While Durban itself is a busy urban centre, visitors will find a number of outstanding wildlife destinations within a few hours’ drive from the city. KwaZulu-Natal is a leading conservation area with a multitude of game parks and reserves. In the north are the Hluhuluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a World Heritage site. A few hours inland is the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, another World Heritage Site that is home to abundant plant and birdlife. A number of smaller boutique game reserves such as Tala and GwaHumbe lie in the mid-Illovo region.
Tala Game Reserve
Tala Private Game Reserve is a wildlife conservancy hidden in the hills of a quiet farming community. We are ever aware that as guardians of this precious piece of Africa we have a responsibility to pass this sanctuary on to future generations.
Tala’s mix of acacia thornveld, open grassland and sensitive wetland provides exceptional game watching and birding, setting the stage for that perfect photograph.
