Tala Game Reserve”
Accomodation adequate. Aircon remote would not show temp so very difficult to regulate. Little or no wifi signal wich was a bit inconvenient but not atlogether unexpected given the location. Roads a bit rough for game viewing in a small car.
only down fall was there is no tv if you cant sleep at night
Stunning Game reserve close to home”
the staff were great, beautiful chalet that we stayed in and a delicious dinner. so great to have a game reserve so close to home
Disgusting customer care ”
We booked the mohangany room - we received confirmation only to arrive and be told that we would have to stay in another accommodation as the house was block booked by another group - the person that helped us find our room 1 hour laster, Goodwell - did the best he could and make us comfortable but the manager Xoliswe was entirely unhelpful - we were promised dinner as a compliment for the long wait - however - the general manager refused to honor the promise. Honestly - for a place that agreeably is beautiful, I would not stay here again - the finishes are worn, the manager needs an attitude change(maybe better suited to farming and not be in the hospitality industry) there was no cordial approach, no apology forthcoming, entirely unprofessional. Better luck next time tala. You managed to ruin what was supposed to be a getaway
Leadwood cottage ”
Leadwood 1 is the best cottage ever. My partner and I had a great time. The staff is very friendly . Big S/O to Nomfunfo in reception :your work ethic is phenomenal
Dear Ntokozo Thank you for your review, we are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Tala. We hope to see you again. All the best Tala Team
Very comfortable and ideal stopover for wedding in the area”
One bathroom (no6 mahogany) there was no water in the shower and the toilet ran all night but apart from that the room was lovely.
I was very disappointed in the room, we booked into the Mahogany room. It was nothing like the pictures on the website. I asked to be moved to the Paperbark rooms, as we were there with friends and the room they gave us was a very slight upgrade but with two single rooms. We went for dinner and the dinner was absolutely shocking. I had steak egg and chips, the steak was revolting (sorry its the only word that can describe it) and my friend had the chicken snitsel which she barely touched. Definitely not the experience I was expecting.

Excellent game ‘park’ rather than a reserve but beautiful surroundings ”
No predators of the cat family but hippos, rhinos, giraffe, wilderbeast, zebra, eland, kudu, impala, warthog all among the animals seen in a half day drive around - do need a 4x4 to get the best from the park. Accommodation very comfortable, food good and staff excellent.
Bedding and the bedroom smells carpets ”
The outside game range is ok but they didn't even have proper sheets and the bathroom not neat I took pictures
Best place to relax”
