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.

              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.

              There seemed to be a lot of miscommunication between the different lodges for breakfasts, they didn't have all the food on the menu (the waiters weren't informed) , the outside showers are a bit silly as an only option, the chairs at the pool were broken, our aircon didnt work the first night and there was no milk sachets for our coffee in the room on the first night. Rather dissappointing all round.
