This was our night of luxury on our honeymoon - and for the prices you would hope so! Even with the Pound doing so well against the Rand, this was still very expensive. However, everything about the stay was 5 star, with a lovely lodge, great restaurant and food and brilliant service. The attention to detail was brilliant - from...

We stayed at this lovely hotel for (unfortunately just) one night. The service, quality of accommodation and atmosphere is fantastic. The staff were very helpful in organising a birthday cake for my girlfriend and we even had a lovely card with some nice sparkling wine waiting for us on our arrival. The privacy afforded by the individual lodges is somewhat...

Dear Nels0n83 Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! Tsala is a great place to come and relax, but at the same time, there is so much to do in the area so one night is definitely not enough as you mentioned! We do hope...

We stayed here for two nights but I would have happily stayed much longer. The lodges are fabulous, high up and overlook the trees. My description of the rooms can't do them justice but they're spacious, have a small pool and fabulous bathroom. Staff are really helpful and seem genuinely interested in ensuring you have a pleasant stay and they're...

It's really a Heaven.. Everything is perfect, very cozy, the staff are very attentive to all your needs. Even if they don't have something, they will only get it for you.

We loved every minute of our two nights here in this wonderful romantic resort. The rooms, location food and staff are all fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. Each lodge is beautifully appointed and private with little touches throughout that add to the experience. We ate in the restaurant on the first night and this was beautiful, much better...

The Tsala Treetop Lodge certainly deserves the praise it gets. The staff are terrific and really helpful and the lodges themselves are breath taking.
