Phezulu and Tala Game Reserve (Full Day Tour)
We make our way west into the spectacular Valley of 1000 Hills, renowned for its scenery of rolling hills and mystical beauty. On arrival at Phezulu we are taken on a guided tour of the Safari Park, where we view the crocodiles and snakes. Then it's off to the highlight of the day…the cultural experience. Here, we interact with local Zulus in their natural habitat and enjoy a spectacular traditional dance display that is sure to leave you breathless. But the fun does not end there. We then proceed to Tala Game Reserve to view a variety of game. Here you will be enthralled by the commentary of a knowledgeable guide as you follow the calls of the wild through the game reserve from the comfort of a 4x4 Land Rover. Tala's mix of acacia thornveld, open grasslands and sensitive wetland provides exceptional game watching and birding, setting the stage for perfect photography.

Driving north, we travel to Thula Thula Private Game Reserve. On arrival at the reserve, we will be enthralled by the wisdom of the resident game ranger, about the Elephants, who freely roam the park, whilst on our game drive. The park also boasts Rhino, Leopard, and a variety of antelope, ensuring us a real treat of what KZN has to offer. After working up an appetite, we are treated to a three course meal, prepared by the lodges' resident chef and set up in the lapa. Tummies full and appetites satisfied, we will make our way to the rural village, offering and authentic cultural experience, including Zulu beer tasting and a visit to the wise sangoma, who can "throw the bones" for you.
