Francolin Lodge is a well-managed and extremely comfortable place to stay. The rooms are modern and very well appointed and the attention to detail is superb. The breakfast layout is appealing - the choice of food and the display are top class. Again, the attention to detail requires mention, from the freshly squeezed juice served individually to the French press...

We have made Francolin Lodge our home when visiting Nelspruit during the Innibos Festival for many years.

Exceptional - on par...
