Holidays Tours Swaziland eSwatini Kruger Safari Zululand South Africa

Holidays & Tours to Swaziland (now eSwatini)

Holidays & tours to the beautiful mountainous Kingdom of Swaziland, now called eSwatini, offer the opportunity to combine a Big Five Kruger safari with the culture, beaches & wildlife of Zululand. Bordered by South Africa on three sides and Mozambique on the fourth, this small country also offers a wonderful cultural experience in its own right.
 
Located on the route between the famous Kruger National Park and the warm beaches of Durban, holidays & tours to Swaziland - eSwatini - offers the opportunity to break your journey across South Africa’s eastern side, with the added satisfaction of adding a Swaziland stamp to your passport.
 
The Swazi people are renowned for their colourful beadwork, woodcarvings, jewellery, glassware and candle making, as well as their hand-woven baskets. With strong cultural traditions, the welcome here is guaranteed to be warm and expansive, with cultural interactions usually a highlight of all holidays & tours to Swaziland / eSwatini.
 
Mkhaya Game Reserve provides sanctuary to endangered rhinos & is a great example of community-based sustainable tourism.

More information on holidays & tours to Swaziland - eSwatini, combined with a Kruger safari & beaches of Zululand in South Africa:
 
The highlights of holidays & tours to Swaziland (eSwatini) are usually cultural and we strongly recommend a visit to a Swazi Village where tours are offered, along with dancing & music. These villages showcase traditional Swazi lifestyle & culture, which includes producing intricate & colourful decorative beadwork and hand-weaving.
 
The most significant Swazi cultural event is the annual Reed Dance that
takes place over eight days in late August/early September. During these festivities tens of thousands of unmarried young women dress up in colourful traditional attire, camp out and cut long river reeds which they present to the Queen Mother at her royal residence. On the last day they dance before their king, who traditionally used this celebration to choose a new bride. Little can prepare you for the sheer scale of this pageant, with column upon column of young girls ululating in a giant centipede formation - swaying, stamping and chanting. A truly unforgettable experience on cultural holidays & tours to Swaziland (eSwatini) timed to take in this event.
 
The Swazi game reserves are good examples of sustainable tourism and provide much needed local employment. Mkhaya Game Reserve in particular has been important for its work in the conservation of black and white rhino. The scenery is spectacular and you can also see plains game, elephant, buffalo and crocodile on wildlife holidays & tours to Swaziland (eSwatini).
 
As well as Mkhaya, there are two other game reserves of note. Hlane Royal National Park is Swaziland’s largest reserve, situated in rugged unspoiled bushveld with lion, elephant, white rhino and giraffe present. Game drives are offered as well as overnight fly camping.  The secluded Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary is located in the beautiful Ezulwini Valley (Valley of the Heavens). It is home to many antelope including bushbuck, common duiker, blesbuck and klipspringer as well hippo, zebra, jackal and honey badger. This is a good walking and birding destination and also offers horse riding and mountain bike trails. All three of Swaziland’s reserves are within a 1.5-hr drive, so it’s easy to combine two reserves in one day on holidays & tours to Swaziland (eSwatini). Each park offers a contrasting habitat and a range of varied activities, including many that are family-friendly. There is a good choice of accommodation from self-catering cottages to small comfortable lodges.
 
Swaziland’s birdlife deserves special mention as there are over 500 recorded species in the kingdom. Attracted by the many wildflowers, rare plants, and the remarkably wide variety of habitats, there are some bird species here that are hard to see elsewhere. Notable species include the critically endangered Blue swallow, Gurney’s sugarbird, Blue crane, Stanley’s bustard, Southern bald ibis, African broadbill, Red-billed helmet shrike and the Pink-throated twinspot. A total of 48 raptors have been recorded on birding holidays & tours to Swaziland (eSwatini).
 
In addition to cultural and wildlife experiences, golfers can enjoy the championship course at Royal Swazi Spa Country Club and casino.
 
Most holidays & tours to Swaziland - eSwatini - are combined with a Big Five Kruger safari and/or the wildlife & beaches of Zululand in South Africa. This can be done on a self-drive basis, escorted tour, private tour or with resort-based transfers.
