Tala Game Reserve
Tala Private Game Reserve, just a 45-minute drive inland of
Durban, is a relaxed sanctuary where visitors can view zebra,
hippos, rhinos, giraffe, kudu, antelope and other wildlife.

lions or cheetahs there, but Tala is a great day trip for those who
can't rough it in the bigger parks like Umfolozi or Kruger. The
restaurant is excellent, offering plated of buffet-style meals with
African flair, and the various luxury accommodations are perfect
for romantic getaways. It's also a popular venue for weddings and
conferences. Tala allows self-drive safaris, which don't have to be
booked in advance, or you can opt to be taken on a two-hour trips
