Garden Route

Tsala Treetop Lodge

Tsala Treetop Lodge is a modern luxury lodge built at canopy level in an indigenous forest near Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route. Accommodation consists of enormous en suite 'tree houses' connected by elevated walkways.

From the trees we came. And back we go at Tsala Treetop Lodge only this time the ancient trees of the Tsitsikamma Forest have to contend with a clan of Choo-toting society folk, living not in the fork of a branch but in palatial suites consisting of double bedrooms, en suite bathrooms, lounges and private decks complete with, and this must be a tricky one for the trees to comprehend, splash pools.

Elevated wooden walkways wind their way through the canopy of trees from the main lodge to each suite. The 10 suites are built of wood, stone and glass and decorated with a modern and luxurious simplicity. Each has a large bedroom with en suite bathroom; a double-sided fireplace divides the bedroom from the sitting room and a small deck in the trees is made just that bit smaller with the addition of a plunge pool.

The 6 tree top villas have two double bedrooms and surpass the suites in every respect. And yes, you're still several metres in the air at this stage, surrounded by natural forest and the open sky.

Like the décor at Tsala Treetop Lodge the food is a curious blend of African and Asian styles steered by generic international trends; dinner is a six-course journey through time and space with a wine list to match.


10 treetop suites; 6 treetop villas with 2 double bedrooms; all en suite; lounge/sitting area; fireplace; private deck with splash pool; lounge; sun deck; bar; wine cellar; restaurant; swimming pool.


Tsala Treetop Lodge is a tranquil and relaxing environment where the height of activity entails walking the winding walkways to and from your suite; in-room aromatherapy treatments are available on request; a boules court for sport; and a pool for cooling afterwards. Plettenberg Bay has beaches, nature reserves, lagoons, estuaries, restaurants, shops and enough to do for an entire holiday let alone a few days.

Close your eyes and imagine blue skies, manicured lawns and a country side manor overlooking orchards and a backdrop of mountains. And well, you’re on the doorstep of the elegant and sophisticated Surval Boutique Olive Estate in Oudtshoorn.

De Denne Guest House

Cadbury’s got his eye on you. And it’s a big one. He’s got the largest peeper of any land animal. And Suzie’s his missus so watch your step. Johan and Louise Keller are billed as the owners but what’s the bet their resident counterparts are the real deal here? This is a working farm. An ostrich one. Cadbury and Suzie are great, big, flightless birds. And probably top dogs.
