Known as “the Place of Kings”, Swaziland is a tranquil country that has preserved its cultures and traditions in a unique blend of ancient and modern. Marking its northeastern border with Mozambique and stretching down to South Africa, the Lebombo Mountains are a backdrop for Mlawula Nature Reserve’s many hiking trails. Nearby Hlane Royal National Park is home to diverse wildlife including lions, hippos and elephants
The Mantenga Nature Reserve is a protected area of 725ha in a secluded corner of the Ezulwini Valley
Hlane is a great self-drive destination, but is best experienced on guided game drives in the lion and endangered species areas
This is a must for campers, hikers, backpackers and horse riders. Game and birdlife abound in Malolotja’s hilly grasslands, while pristine forests guard many little-known species.
