About Tsala Treetop Lodge and Villas

Cocooned and cared for, high above the forest floor

Amidst the treetops of an age-old indigenous forest, Tsala is a lavish celebration of the spirit of Africa. The elaborate afro-baroque décor’s earthy colours, rich textures and handcrafted fittings are inspired by the diverse cultures of Africa, with the sophistication of the Western World. Tucked into the forest canopy, 10 luxury suites and 6 double bedroomed villas with private decks with private plunge pools extending into indigenous canopies.

The magical allure of Tsala is irresistible to those that appreciate exclusivity and fine fare. A mere 10km west of Plettenberg Bay and 20km east of Knysna, perfectly positioned to access the various nature and sports activities on offer in the region yet allowing one to retreat into the privacy of your treetop suite.

Staying in your own private elevated hideaway is romantic and adventurous, along with its perfect location in the heart of the Garden Route, this unique property is an ideal base for your holiday adventure.

Offering 4 unique dining options during your stay either at Tsala in the main dining room or room service, at the renowned Zinzi Restaurant or there are two options available at Hunter’s Country House, namely our refined fine dining experience at Sage or alternatively The Conservatory offering a lighter bistro menu for lunches and dinners.

Tsala is, in every sense, a magical place.

Spa: Pamper treatments can be arranged on request in the guests suites.

Wedding Venues: Small intimate weddings held in our chapel in the Forest accommodating up to 55 guests followed by a tailor made lunch or dinner or if it is a smaller affair drinks and canapés in the manicured gardens on the Hunter’s Estate.

          4 days in November 2008 It was fantastic even if the weather was not the greatest (worst rains since 1981) the place more than made up for it. It was for a special birthday 50th and was a very romantic day. The staff made our stay very enjoyable and the day itself very special with a champagne breakfast and a lovely birthday cake in the evening which was thoughtful. We are hoping to visit again and would recommend it to everyone.

          Hi there. Our stay was great, you have a magnificant facility. The only negative thing we experienced was the smoked filled room from the fire place, which we reported. Everything else was 5 star indeed. Thank you very much indeed.

          We arrived at Tsala hoping for a most unusual and atmospheric place to rest for a couple of days. We were not disappointed at all. The surroundings are sumptuous. We were unlucky with the weather and did not get to use the plunge pool, but we made the most of the beautiful fire in the lounge area - a very romantic place to while away the evening. The food and service in the restaurant were excellent, and well-priced for the quality. We had a wander over to Hunter's Lodge whilse we were there - that was very nice, but Tsala beats it hands down. And thats not just because of the monkeys. A whole...
