Tsala Treetop Lodge
Plettenberg Bay, Garden Route
Think a treehouse is just for children? Think again. Even the name Tsala Treetop Lodge evokes a sense of romance, magic, and seclusion. And that’s exactly what it delivers. A unique Garden Route getaway, it sits in a forest canopy with views down into the valley and across to distant tree-encrusted hills. Dressed in beautiful stone and wood, it takes you straight to nature – but this retreat is anything but rustic. In fact, its sophisticated design, glass-walled dining room, dedication to luxury, and stilt-topped villas with private pools overlooking the hills, put it firmly in the boutique hotel bracket. It’s not just the views and treetop setting that make this location special though; it’s also between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay, by Knysna Elephant Park, making it an ideal spot for experiencing some of the Garden Route’s most popular highlights.
