THULA Thula Pri­vate Game Re­serve is a 4 500ha wildlife sanc­tu­ary ded­i­cated to the con­ser­va­tion, pro­tec­tion and sur­vival of en­dan­gered species.

Sit­u­ated in Zu­l­u­land, two hours drive from Dur­ban and one hour from Richards Bay, Thula Thula is a luxury sa­fari des­ti­na­tion where game rangers share their in­cred­i­ble knowl­edge of the bush dur­ing game drives while you ob­serve ele­phant, rhino, buf­falo, hippo, leop­ard and a spec­tac­u­lar va­ri­ety of other in­dige­nous species, great and small.

The bird life is pro­lific with over 350 iden­ti­fied species, in­clud­ing rap­tors.

Thula Thula is also the home of ma­tri­arch Nana and the spe­cial herd of elephants made fa­mous in the best­selling book The Ele­phant Whis­perer by Lawrence An­thony.

Thula Thula is run by his wife Fran­coise who car­ries on the le­gacy of Lawrence, with con­ser­va­tion projects and the run­ning of both lodges. Fran­coise has writ­ten An Ele­phant in My Kitchen, the se­quel to The Ele­phant Whis­perer, pub­lished in July 2018 and a num­ber one best­seller in South Africa.

They launched the Thula Thula Vol­un­teers Academy in May 2018.

The Thula Thula pro­gramme of­fers lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional vol­un­teers a once-in-a-life­time op­por­tu­nity to get in­volved in wildlife con­ser­va­tion, re­serve man­age­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal stud­ies.

Their mis­sion is to ed­u­cate and in­spire, and vol­un­teers will be pro­vided with prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence the re­serve has to of­fer in game re­serve man­age­ment, re­search projects and com­mu­nity skills devel­op­ment and ed­u­ca­tion.
