Tsala Treetop Lodge

Beautifully Located

Situated in the heart of the Garden Route

Ideally situated between the coastal towns of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay in the Western Cape, Tsala is a wonderful location from which to explore the beautiful Garden Route or just to spend time relaxing at the peaceful lodge.

A must see when you do the garden route! This resort has got it all. Fantastic rooms in the trees with your private pool and completely undisturbed. Fantastic food and a brilliant wine list. The garden around is a little paradise and the lodge is perfectly located for all the attractions in Plettenberg.
