Thula Thula Game Reserve, South Africa

1/10  Thula Thula Game Reserve

Why go? Witnessing animals in their natural habitat is soul food of the highest order. Children and teenagers especially enjoy the adventure that comes with heading into the bush on a massive Jeep looking for signs of life. The country’s game reserves are fantastic, but some offer just a touch more.

Accommodation: Thula Thula is a much loved reserve in northern Natal, only two hours from Durban, for the founder’s dedication to a herd of elephants that were going to be culled.
