Exclusive Shore Event: Durban | Tala Private Game Reserve and Zulu Village with Lunch
he British created the city of Durban, on the East Coast of South Africa, almost 200 years ago. The area was deemed an ideal location for the establishment of a trading post from which these European entrepreneurs could barter with the powerful Zulu nation. Today Durban's incredible natural resources beautiful beaches, fabulous gardens, and glorious parks lure modern-day "traders" and travelers.
Our day begins with a scenic drive inland, about 1 hours' drive, to Tala Private Game Reserve to enjoy a two-hour game drive through this wildlife conservancy hidden in the hills of a quiet farming community. Tala's mix of acacia, thorn veld, open grasslands and sensitive wetland provides exceptional game viewing and bird watching, setting the stage for that perfect photograph. Tala is a wildlife sanctuary spanning over 7400 acres providing good opportunities to see over 380 bird species, rhino, kudu, hippo and giraffe just to name a few. None of the cat family or elephants can be found on this reserve.
We will then enjoy a wonderful lunch at Tala Private Game Reserve after which we will travel to Phezulu Safari Park, an exciting venue situated in Botha's Hill, only 21 miles from central Durban. This picturesque park has magnificent views of the world-famous Valley of a 1000 Hills. At Phezulu village, the world famous Gasa clan have over the last 30 years allowed visitors to Phezulu the opportunity to savor the taste and feel the rhythm of Africa.
We are taken into traditional beehive shaped thatched huts, where the various artifacts, beliefs and rituals are explained, giving us an insight into the fascinating Zulu culture. The Zulu dancing show is impressive with the dancers in their traditional garb, showing off their skills with grace, agility and humor- a truly unforgettable experience!
Situated in the middle of the Valley of a 1000 Hills, with outstanding views, Phezulu boasts one of the best Curio shops in Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as a Swazi Candle shop with beautifully sculptured handmade candles where you will have some free time.
We then depart back to the harbor and your cruise ship.
Approximate Length: Eight hours.
Suggested Attire: Casual wear with hat recommended and comfortable walking shoes. Short walking distances, with some steps and uneven surfaces.
