HULA THULA Pri­vate Game Re­serve of­fers guests an au­then­tic sa­fari ex­pe­ri­ence in the heart of Zu­l­u­land.

Com­bin­ing the best of the African bushveld in a uniquely at­mo­spheric set­ting, guests of the re­serve have a choice of lodg­ing in ei­ther the Ele­phant Sa­fari Lodge or the Lux­ury Tented Camp, both of which of­fer mag­nif­i­cent bush vis­tas and de­li­cious cui­sine, as well as their own swim­ming pools, bo­mas and guest lounges.

The 4 500 hectares of malaria-free bushveld al­lows guests the op­por­tu­nity to game and bird watch, ei­ther on guided bush walks or on twice-daily game drives.

Wildlife on the re­serve in­cludes gi­raffe, ze­bra, a wide di­ver­sity of plains game, rhino and the orig­i­nal herd of ele­phants on which for­mer owner Lawrence An­thony’s best-sell­ing book, The Ele­phant Whis­perer, is based.

Birdlife is also pro­lific and the vast ar­ray of fauna and flora will de­light na­ture lovers, young and old.

Orig­i­nally de­vel­oped by con­ser­va­tion­ist An­thony, the re­serve to­day is a sanc­tu­ary for his much-loved breed­ing ele­phant herd, which he res­cued and re­ha­bil­i­tated in 1999.

His con­ser­va­tion work is con­tin­ued on the re­serve through the Thula Thula Wildlife Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­tre.

Mas­sages, pho­tog­ra­phy cour­ses, cham­pagne bush pic­nics and lo­cal cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ences are just some of the other ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer for guests.
