Only two hours north of Durban in a malaria-free area, the oldest private game reserve in KwaZulu Natal provides sanctuary for elephant, leopard, rhino, buffalo, superb birdlife and more, combined with Zulu history, style and good food. And now there is also a rhino orphanage for the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife.
