About Tala Collection Private Game Reserve

Tala Collection 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.

Built by a team of artisans with locally sourced shale. Leadwood Lodge combines exceptional architecture, towering thatch and resplendent finishes.

The menu at La Tala Restaurant has been specially designed by the executive chef to create a delicately balanced fusion of flavours with a Wine list that perfectly complements the food selection. Attractions include game drives, insect trail, nature trail, bush walk, wild gird ringing and a rock pool.

Safari: Tala is a wildlife sanctuary spanning over 3000 hectares and incorporating many diverse natural environments, the reserve features over 380 bird species, with big game that includes kudu, hippo, giraffe and eland.

Wedding Venues: The venue seats up to 140 guests. Acacia is a lovely sized wedding which can cater for up to 100 guests. A wooden deck and old Acacia trees as chandeliers, with arrangements of fairy lights in it, when lit up makes any wedding feel like a fairytale.

Conference Venues: Let the splendour of the African bush inspire you and your colleagues with a conference capacity of up to 250 delegates.

Family friendly: All meals are served at the Tala Restaurant, if you would like to join us for dinner please can you book in advance, all meals and drinks are to be settled at the reception at the end for your stay.

              The staff was friendly and helpful. The only things we were not happy about was getting a room dt was not on the pictures as per advert and also rooms are without television sets. If you can consider that.The resurant food was tops.Thank you

              Loved being in the bush. Seeing the natural wildlife etc. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately one can see that Covid has contributed to financial contraints, and our room was looking tired and in need of a refresher, some cracks to be covered up etc.The gardens in some areas were lovely, but at the back where our parking was, was full of weeds, cut wood. etc. There is a big conservation concern as the lantana, bugweed etc was just growing prolifically in the reserve.

              Welcoming staff, beautiful place, clean and warm rooms. We enjoyed the game drive. It was a mini vacay. I really enjoyed the stay. I wil definitely go back in summer.

              Beautiful scenery, friendly staff but the beds are sooo hard. My mom and i couldn't sleep. The beds at Aloe are so painful even after requesting for an additional cushioning blanket.
