A 700m airstrip is on the property. Thula Thula, in a malaria-free area, with its centuries 'old cultural & wildlife heritage, takes pride in tracing its origins back to the private hunting grounds of King Shaka, founder of the Zulu Empire. The first historic meeting between Shaka & his father (Senzangakhona), which set the stage for the creation of the Zulu nation, took place on the banks of the Nseleni River at Thula Thula. Experienced rangers will guide you on exciting safaris in open Land Rovers through the unique diversity of this ancestral land to encounter elephant, rhino, buffalos, leopard, giraffe, hyena, crocodile, zebra, wildebeest, kudu, nyala & a spectacular variety of other indigenous species, great & small. Also includes elephant & rhino tracking in open Land Rovers, leopard tracking during bush walks in the riverbed, night drives with hyena call out Bird life is prolific with over 370 identified species, including many raptors. Thula Thula re-introduced a breeding herd of seven elephant in August 1999 marking the historic return of these majestic creatures to the area in nearly 100 years & specialises in elephant rehabilitation, led by the renowned conservationist Lawrence Anthony, who also initiated the rescue of the Baghdad Zoo in April 2003. The special elephant herd has now grown to twenty-four. Sadly Lawrence passed away in March 2012, but his legacy is carried on by his wife, Françoise & her dedicated team.
