Tala Collection Game Reserve

Tala Collection Game Reserve is a wildlife conservancy hidden in the hills of a quiet farming community. From being greeted by warthogs as you arrive at the reception area, to having zebras and giraffes visit you in the early morning, the Reserve offers a memorable stay for all runners/ cyclists alike. One of the most appealing aspects of this KwaZulu-Natal game reserve is its ease of accessibility, coming to or from Durban - although, once here, you’ll feel like you're a million miles away from everything.


Tala Collection Game Reserve offers trail running and riding to visitors throughout the year, and operates as a fully functional bike park. However the Dream Adventure Weekend is a chance to test who is quicker around the 5km, 13km, and 26km routes, to truly deem themselves king/ queen of the mountain.


The Dream Adventure Weekend is open to trail runners, and MTB riders across 3 routes:

26km| 13km  | 5km



Please note that your entry fee includes your conservation entry fee into the park.
