An early collection from a local Mpumalanga hotel and onto Jeppe’s Reef/Matsamo Border Post enter into Swaziland. Pass through Pigg’s Peak town set high in the mountains, via vast forests of Pine and Eucalyptus trees, to the principal city of Swaziland, Mbabane. Travel via the Ezulwini Valley and the craft market; visit the colourful Swazi Candle Factory where handmade candles are crafted in a menagerie of animals, traditional styles and other forms.

Lunch is served “al fresco” (weather permitting) at Malandela’s Restaurant in Malkerns.


After lunch visit the King Sabusa II Memorial Gardens and Ngwenya Glass Works where recycled glass is used to create a display of glasses and other artworks. Depart Swaziland via Oshhoek Border Post and return to the hotel via the Drakensberg Mountains and the De Kaap Valley.

The highlight of the tour, however, is undoubtedly the warmth and welcoming nature of the Swazi people.
