Leave behind the hustle and bustle of the city and journey into the gently rolling countryside of the Natal Midlands, to one of our best kept secrets, Tala Game Reserve! Tala, a privately owned wildlife conservancy, has a charm all its own – teaming with birdlife, magnificent “plains game”, such as eland, giraffe, kudu and zebra, and a family of hippos, which are extremely rare in this area! Enjoy the spectacular scenery and closed vehicle game viewing, returning to the port in time for the ship’s departure.

We enjoyed the drive with Rennie, our tour guide, and the park. He went out of his way to make sure we saw all the animals in the reserve.

Your was booked for 6 hours we only went for 4.5hrs Only the front seat can hear the driver. Would have been nice to get a little more local culture experience

It was a great experience to see these beautiful animals in there own environment in the wild. To see them strolling around with not a care in the world and no predators. I would also like to add a comment about our driver and guide who's name was Tommy .what a wonderful man,went out of his way to show us around that wonderful Tala game reserve.

We had a wonderful time at Tala Game Reserve. Our guide, Tammy, waited for us due to our late arrival into Durban cruise port and he was very knowledgeable, funny and helpful during the tour of the reserve. Would highly recommend this tour, particularly with Tammy.

Great half day adventure. Saw giraffes, ostriches, zebras, rhinos, gnus and more. Very nice scenery as well. Lots to see on the one hour or so drive from Durban.
