Tala Game Reserve


Tala game reserve is described as Durban's finest game reserve and is situated in Camperdown, about 50 minutes from the centre of Durban. Tala is about 3000 hectares and features various lodges spread out over the reserve. This game reserve is well know for its wedding venues and state of the art conference venues. There are over 250 species of birds in this area as well as wildlife including Hippos, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest and Rhinos. Tala Game Reserve was bought back by the community and is now community run.


Tala Game Reserve is renown for its conferencing and wedding venues as it has multiple options. Zuma's son got married at Tala Game Reserve in front of 500 guests in October 2011 and cited Tala Game Reserve as the best option. In 2010, some of the decisions for the world cup were made in Tala's very own Conference Room furnished with BMW Black leather chairs.
