Tsala Treetop Lodge

Amidst the treetops of an age-old indigenous forest, Tsala is a lavish celebration of the spirit of Africa.

Like the monumental ruins of an ancient African civilisation, Tsala’s impressive stone-masonry entrance flanked by water leads to a magnificent foyer. The elaborate afro-baroque décor’s earthy colours, rich textures and handcrafted fittings are inspired by the diverse cultures of Africa, with the sophistication of the Western World.

Tsala is, in every sense, a magical place – breath taking views from everywhere, superb unobtrusive service and dining to match, whether at the renowned Zinzi Restaurant (SA’s Top 100), the Tsala dining room or in the intimacy of your suite.
