Bridget Hilton-Barber describes 5-star lodge in Mpumalanga as a green oasis

In the travel feature, author and writer Bridget Hilton-Barber chats to #WeekendBreakfast host Phemelo Motene about her experience staying at the five-star Francolin Lodge in Mpumalanga.

Hilton-Barber says that she needed a business hotel in Mpumalanga and that’s when she came across the lodge on the internet.

She says that it was a hot and sweaty trip getting there, and what made it worse was the protests and road blocks along the way. Hilton-Barber adds that when she arrived at the lodge, which is named after a bird, she walked into a beautiful setting and style.

What I love about the international lodge is that it has raised the standard in Mbombela says Hilton-Barber. She adds that you have an amazing view of the city as Francolin Lodge is built on top of huge granite boulders.

I walked into this place and it was like a green oasis.

Its setting is beautiful; its style is beautiful.
