Tsala Treetop Lodge, Plettenberg Bay

Rest and relax at Tsala Treetop Lodge which literally means “elevated resting place’ in Swahili. Enjoy the raised villas and suites that make you feel part of your own forest fantasy. Children play magical games at Tsala Treetop Lodge in the enchanted forest and weddings take on an extraordinary spirit here. Simply entering Tsala is mind-blowing with its statuesque stone-masonry and water features, enhanced by tall Blackwood pillars. Sophisticated accommodation in a natural storybook setting.

Set amidst the treetops of an age-old indigenous forest, Tsala is a lavish celebration of the spirit of Africa. Emulating the monumental ruins of an ancient central African civilisation, the impressive stone-masonry entrance flanked by water features leads into a magnificent foyer supported by polished Blackwood columns. The afro-baroque décor with its earthy colours, rich textures and handcrafted fittings draws inspiration from the diverse cultures of Africa, yet remains integrated with the sophistication of the Western world. Whether from the exotically appointed dining room, the intimate glassed-in lounge, or the large open decks high above the forest floor, the views are all breathtakingly beautiful, encompassing lush forests extending across rolling valleys towards distant hills.
