The place exceeded my expectations, Very clean and comfortable with beautiful views of Mbombela. The staff is very and professional, the the breakfast was also excellent. The only sad part was that we only got to experience the orange restaurant only on new years eve, as they were closed on the 1st and 2nd January. Would go back any given...

We are perfectly situated to explore the wonders of the Lowveld, after which, you can come back to be wined and dined at the on-site restaurant before you head back to your suite for a special turn-down treat.

It was not a hardship to spend 2 nights away from home at the Francolin Lodge. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautifully appointed. And dinner at the adjacent Orange restaurant is a must. All in all it was a stunning stay and I would highly recommend it to everyone
