Thula Thula Private Game Reserve

Thula Thula, privately-owned and operated, is situated in the heart of Zululand, 1 hour from Richards

Bay, 1.5 hours from Hluhluwe Game Reserve/St Lucia and less than 2 hours drive from Durban.

This 4500 ha, malaria free game reserve was established in 1911 and has been operational as Thula Thula

Private Game Reserve for the last 16 years (2000). It is home to a wide variety of game as elephant,

buffalo, rhino, leopard, giraffe and many more as well as birds, reptiles and insects.

Thula Thula, with its centuries of cultural and wildlife heritage takes pride in tracing back its

origin to the private hunting grounds of King Shaka, founder of the Zulu Empire. The first historic

meeting between Shaka and his father (Senzangakhona), which set the stage for the creation of the Zulu

nation, took place at the Nseleni River at Thula Thula.The Zulu name Thula Thula literally means peace

and tranquillity.

Thula Thula was also the home of late bestselling author and conservationist Lawrence Anthony, who

passed away on March 2012. His second book, The Elephant Whisperer relates the story of he rescued the

Thula Thula elephants, and the special relationship he created with the herd.
Thula Thula is now run by his widow, Francoise Malby Anthony, who carries on Lawrence’s legacy i.r.o.

his conservation projects and the running of the two lodges.
