Set into the verdant canopy of the indigenous Tsitsikamma forest, Tsala Treetop Lodges offers five-star accommodation in a setting that fuses luxury and indulgence with the enchantment of pristine nature. Situated halfway between the beautiful coastal resort towns of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, this hidden gem is a panacea for the soul: Leave the stress of urban life far behind as you embark on a blissful adventure into the African wilderness.
Choose from 16 treetop chalets, comprising ten luxury suites and six exclusive two bedroom villas, each featuring a large living area with fireplace, massive ensuite bathroom, private deck amidst the foliage and infinity pool that seems to float magically in space.
Crafted from wood, glass and chunks of hewn stone, the lodge fuses rustic traditional elements with chic contemporary facets, creating a setting that is both mystical and timeless.
At Tsala, you’ll be treated to the unique experience of waking up to a sea of green, serenaded by the sounds of the forest. Enjoy breakfast in the glass walled Breakfast Room or on the Forest Deck, where birds flash iridescent through the trees and even the odd friendly monkey may look on inquisitively as you enjoy a lavish buffet breakfast in the shade of the lush canopy.
The Garden Route has earned a global reputation for its scenic splendour, laid back atmosphere and friendly locals, and encompasses an array of picturesque local towns, exquisite beaches and rugged mountains to explore.
For the active vacationer, the region offers a profusion of adventure activities and extreme sports, including para-sailing, horse riding, rock climbing, abseiling, sea kayaking and – the ultimate thrill – sky diving. Tsala’s friendly and attentive staff members are always on hand to make recommendations and bookings so you can enjoy your holiday to the fullest.
When the day’s activities are over, unwind with an indulgent aromatherapy massage or reflexology session in the privacy of your suite or lounge, or enjoy a cocktail by your treetop swimming pool. And as the light melts into darkness, relish the culinary excellence of Zinzi restaurant, where an exotic feast of African and international flavours complete the Tsala Treetop experience.
