"To be playing a part, no matter how small, in the conservation of our dwindling wildlife is an experience I shall always cherish"
Stuart Hilcove - Owner of TALA Game Reserve
THE SPIRIT OF AFRICA’S WILDERNESS
TALA Private Game Reserve is a wildlife conservancy hidden in the hills of a quiet farming community not far from Durban in KwaZulu-Natal. 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.
We have a number of superb venues
and a service team committed to providing you with a unique experience. TALA is ideally located for conferences, weddings, celebrations or simply a short retreat to rejuvenate and relax. TALA allows you to get closer to nature, to really interact with the environment and animals, and to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the African bush.
TALA is a wildlife sanctuary. Spanning over 3000 hectares and incorporating many diverse natural environments, the reserve features well over 380 bird species, with big game that includes rhino, kudu, hippo, giraffe and the rare sable antelope. Several distinctive and remarkable plant species are also to be found on TALA. The fiery aloe in full bloom, the imposing euphorbia and the smell of the fragrant wild sage on a dewy morning make every stay at the reserve unique and memorable.
There are a number of ways to experience the outdoors at TALA. Game drives are held throughout the day with experienced guides. Bush walks along the many trails are an exciting way to explore the reserve.
