Tsala Treetop
The Garden Route

Magical is almost an understatement when describing this collection of treetop lodges perched in an age-old indigenous forest. The delights begin at the entrance, flanked by water features, leading to a magnificent foyer decorated with Blackwood columns. Natural materials abound, this is a place woven into the landscape and infused with a uniquely African energy.

Ten romantic hide-away suites are tucked into the treetops, each with a deeply comfortable bedroom, sitting room with fireplace, generous bathrooms and, best of all, a private deck with infinity pool that seems to flow into the forest canopy itself. Families or couples travelling together can plump for the high-ceilinged two-bedroom treetop villas.

As to be expected, the views at Tsala Treetop are breathtaking, whether from the exotic dining room, cosy glassed-walled lounge, or large open decks high above the forest floor.

The Garden Route is awash with adventures to be had. Go snorkelling with Africa fur seals or take a cruise through the Knysna Heads on a classic yacht. We love getting a glimpse of Plettenberg Bay’s mountain scenery and dramatic coastline while kayaking through the azure ocean.  A highly-recommended retreat!

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
