A fantastic hotel with few beautiful rooms on top of trees è n the middle of the forest. Lovely room, with its own private pool looking at the forest. Perfect service, the best place to relax and appreciate this beautiful corner of South Africa

We recently attended a wedding held at Tsala - which was out of this world. The chapel was down a magical forest pathway which lead to a small/medium sized chapel over looking the valley (literally treetops) which was beautiful. The venue itself is so peaceful and tranquil - you'd think you were in a different world. The restaurant (Zinzi) was...

We recently stayed at Tsala for 3 nights and we had a lovely stay. The lodge itself is beautiful and the chalets are very nicely appointed affording privacy and peacefulness. I haven't given full marks however, as I feel it's the little things and attention to detail that is important, particularly with a lodge of this calibre. The mini bar...

Dear Lynnie07 Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. We are disappointed to hear that your stay was less than perfect. I apologise that the drain in your shower was not fixed immediately. We are also currently updating our wine list with more boutique wines that will definitely be a better representation of Tsala. Thank you...

Staying in tree tops in the most luxurious way sounds contradicting. But this is what Tsala tree top is about. It is actually quite hard to describe the feeling you get when you have been enjoying the treetops from your own terrace and pool and then walk back into the most luxurious rooms.

We stayed for two nights in one of these magnificent Treetop Villas. The two bedrooms as well as the lounge area were spacious and well equipped.
