Original, opulent and, with fabulous forest views, Tsala is an ideal choice for those who want luxury and somewhere a little different.


We like Tsala and think it is rather special. The two-bedroom villas work well for a group of four, while the suites are particularly suited to honeymooners and couple as they are extremely romantic.


Tsala is situated in Harkerville Forest between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route. It is about an hour's drive from George Airport.


The lodge is beautifully designed with all of the rooms elevated into the trees and joined by wooden walkways. There is a comfortable lounge with Internet access and Wi-Fi, and a first-class restaurant, Zinzi , which serves international cuisine. Service is discreet and efficient.

The 10 suites and 6 two-bedroom villas are made of wood and glass, with floor-to-ceiling views of the forest outside. Extremely spacious and completely secluded, they consist of a living room with balcony, an attractive bedroom, and a large bathroom featuring a huge oval stone bath. They each have their own infinity plunge pool on a deck outside.


Tsala is perfectly placed as a base for exploring what we consider to be the most attractive section of the Garden Route. The surrounding area is very scenic, with a spectacular coastline, beautiful lagoons, sandy beaches and miles of forest.
