Maputo

Maputo

The Kingdom of Swaziland is a land offering a unique taste of Africa. Despite being the smallest country in the Southern hemisphere, Swaziland more than makes up for its lack of size with a hugely diverse range of attractions and activities.

As one of the few remaining Executive Monarchies in Africa, culture and heritage are deeply engrained in all aspects of Swazi life, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all who visit. As well as the rich culture, the overwhelming friendliness of the people makes all visitors feel truly welcome and very safe. Add to that a stunning landscapes of mountains and valleys, forests and plains; plus wildlife reserves across the country that are home to The Big Five, and you have all that’s best about Africa in one small but perfectly formed and welcoming country.

Our Guide will pick you up at your hotel in Maputo (please organize a packed breakfast from your hotel). We shall head towards the Lebombo Mountains, via the Lomahasha border post, to the city of Manzini, where we will stop for a coffee and a look at the local markets, before heading on to the Ezulwini Valley.

Visits include Swazi Secrets, Mantenga Craft Center and Guava Gallery to view Swazi jewellery and art, then on to Mantenga Cultural Village, where you will appreciate the history and culture of the legendary Swazi Nation. To the beat of echoing cowhide drums, traditional Swazi dancing is performed by a talented group of dancers in a nearby boma. An optional short walk can be taken to the waterfall that holds much bird and wildlife.

You will also visit the arts & craft attractions at Malandela’s Homestead or Gone Rural, House of Fire and the Swazi Candle Factory where clients can view the decorative art of candle making, after which you will make the return journey home via Goba.
