We are in Nelspruit Town so the Malelane and Numbi gates of the Kruger National Park are only 40mins away and we offer the added convenience of being near to the shopping malls without them intruding on the beauty of our hilltop...

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

Every time I go to Nelspruit I stay over at Francolin Lodge. The rooms are beautiful! The staff are friendly and helpful! The attention to detail is fantastic - from the fresh milk for your coffee, the plunger coffee, the decadent chocolate brownie next to your bed at night. The breakfast was delicious with a wide variety from fresh fruit,...

I often travel for business at short notice - I was referred to Francolin Lodge due to my original accommodation being fully booked. The service from staff was impecable, the facilities offer nothing less than 5 star quality and the value added options of Spa and Restaurant available on site make this venue my first choice when required.
