Tsala Treetop Lodge

Life looks different from the treetops. Tsala, with its high level sumptuousness and African roots is a very different place to stay.

You stroll from your luxury suite, tucked high into the treetops, across elevated walkways, to the main lodge. Then you sit down to early cocktails on the viewing deck, surrounded by the leafy green branches of an ancient, indigenous forest.

If you haven’t visited Tsala before, it’s safe to say you’ve never experienced anywhere quite like it. This is a one off; a sublime combination of contemporary chic and Africa. A mixture of refinement and nature. A place where you can indulge in internationally-acclaimed wines and world class food, or simply close your eyes and listen to an airborne choir of forest birds.
