Tala Private Game Reserve

 

 

TALA 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.

TALA’s mix of acacia thornveld, open grassland and sensitive wetland provides exceptional game watching and birding, setting the stage for that perfect photograph.

We have a number of superb venues and a service team committed to providing you with a unique experience. TALA is ideally located for conferences, weddings, celebrations or simply a short retreat to rejuvenate and relax. TALA allows you to get closer to nature, to really interact with the environment and animals, and to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the African bush.

Leadwood is a fully exclusive five star lodge and an ideal location for an intimate wedding. Leadwood is an architectural masterpiece of African organic design that took three years to complete, a project which was personally overseen by Stuart Hilcove, Tala’s owner.

The elegant main house is accompanied by six private cottages.

It’s comfortable openness and stylish décor combines colour, mythology and furnishings full of rich South African history with an un- compromising approach to luxury and detail.

A dedicated executive chef brings a wealth of boutique hotel experience to Leadwood and has a rare talent for merging the simple and the sublime.

Enjoy the revitalising pool, breath taking views over a natural watering hole surrounded by a valley of Acacia’s, a world renowned wine cellar and a private library.
