Live in delight among the African Treetops at Tsala Treetop Lodge
Along the southern coast of South Africa, far beyond the point where the Atlantic ends, the Indian Ocean thoroughly dominates the warm and temperate climate of the coastline, which runs east and west. There is an excellent highway here that follows this green span of farmland, low hills, and beaches for the length of the country. This is South Africa’s Garden Route, Highway 2, and it begins in Cape Town and runs all along the southern end of the nation. As you ride along the Garden Route, you can enjoy long stretches of forest, green crops thriving on the rolling hills of the countryside, and occasional views of the ocean. At about the middle of this long coastal road, the Diepwalle Forest stands very close to the ocean and the town of Plettenburg Bay. In the heart of the Diepwalle Forest runs the Piesang River, and above the wooded banks of this deep forest stream, you can find the Tsala Treetop Lodge, a deluxe boutique hotel and a monument to the lovers of woodlands everywhere.
Tsala Treetop is a member of the Hunter Hotels group and it offers its guests outstanding luxury accommodations in the setting of an African forest. You enter your deluxe suites from the ground on the north side, and as you explore your apartment, you find that on the east, south, and west, you are stepping into the tops of the trees above the Piesang. The greenery combines pine, elm, ironwood, and the gigantic deciduous Outeniqua yellowwood. Your veranda is perched high above the stream below, and beyond the river, the Diepwalle stretches out in exotic green hills. Tsala Treetop is a child-friendly establishment, featuring children’s programmes and a babysitting service offered on a bespoke basis. Bespoke tours of the region, and bespoke expeditions to local attractions, are easy to arrange. At every suite, a private infinity pool awaits you, and the central Lodge of the estate offers an outdoor pool, as well as a well-stocked library with fireplace, all in a lavishly designed country lodge setting.
