Tsala Treetop Lodge & Villas


Amidst the treetops of an age-old indigenous forest, Tsala Treetop Lodge is a lavish celebration of the spirit of Africa located in the heart of the Garden Route.

Like the monumental ruins of an ancient central African civilisation, Tsala’s impressive stonemasonry entrance flanked by water features leads to a magnificent foyer supported by Blackwood columns.

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. The views are breathtaking, whether from the exotic dining room, intimate glassed-in lounge, or large open decks high above the forest floor.

Tsala is a magical place, encircled by lush forests extending across rolling valleys, towards the distant hills.

Staying in your own private elevated hideaway is romantic and adventurous, along with its perfect location in the heart of the Garden Route, which makes Tsala the ideal place to have a holiday or corporate getaway.

Whether you wish to stay in and relax amidst the ancient enchanting forest, or to head out and explore South Africa’s celebrated Garden Route, experiencing Tsala is pure magic.

Beautiful private suites and villas, breathtaking views and forest seclusion, unique architectural design and excellent personal service, irresistible to those who appreciate exclusivity, fine fare, romance, and adventure.
