The Zulu name Thula Thula literally means peace and tranquility...

Thula Thula, with its centuries of cultural and wildlife heritage, takes pride in tracing back it's 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 4500 ha private game reserve Thula Thula. is situated only 45 minutes from Richards Bay harbour and airport, and less than 2 hours drive from Durban. There is a 700m airstrip on the property.
