Book cheap hotels in Swaziland

Swaziland has much in store for adventurers and fun-seekers! From bird-watching, crafts and art galleries and a wide selection of golf courses for the more relaxed visitor to activities that require a bit more energy such as hiking, river rafting, paragliding and mountain biking. Swaziland also has many great fishing spots. We consider Swaziland together with Lesotho two hidden gems of Southern Africa that are often overlooked by travellers that enjoy exploring and discovery. They don’t have the fanciest hotels or over-equipped game drives, but offer traveling where you don’t have to rough it either. See you next year, Swaziland, when we’ll be doing Bushfire again.

Five reasons to visit magic Swaziland

  1. It’s a great stopover on the way to the Kruger. If you’re visiting the Kruger National Park and you’re driving there from Johannesburg, take a detour and spend a day or two in Swaziland on your way there. Stay over either at in the self-catering cottages at Malolotja Nature Reserve, or if you’re a bit more upmarket at the Royal Swazi Spa hotel. On your day in Swaziland you can take a circular drive through the Ezulwini valley which has many interesting nature and craft stops to visit.
  2. The vibrant Swazi culture. Everyone returns to South Africa speaks of the friendliness of the Swazi people. I think it’s borne out of their proud history as a nation and a cultural heritage that remains vibrant and colourful. From the stone carvings sold along the road to their traditional dances and Zulu-like huts
  3. Ngwenya Glass. This factory along the main road to the Oshoek border post manufactures glass objects from recycled glass. You can see the glass blowers in action and browse their extensive showroom. they have a wide range of gift-type objects ranging from glass elephants to shot glasses and paper weights. Prices are very reasonable – on our visit we walked away with a set of six beer glasses for less than the price of a restaurant meal for two.
  4. The Swazi landscape. It only takes about four hours to travel through Swaziland from east to west, and during that time you’ll travel through a microcosm of bushveld, rolling, misty hills, deep riverine valleys surrounded by majestic peaks and subtropical plains. The Swazi landscapes are pretty and even though the countryside is relatively densely populated it looks remarkably unspoilt.
  5. Malotlotja Nature Reserve. This is my personal favourite – yes, you can see wildlife in five of Swaziland’s game parks but Malolotja is a special place – it’s quiet, peaceful surroundings borders on the mystical. No wonder gets a five star rating on Tripadvisor! Early mornings are swatched in dense mist that gently lifts as the morning passes until it gives way to bright, sunny days and fireside evenings. Herds of Blesbok and Zebra roam the veld surrounding the dozen or so chalets built along a ridge that has magnificent views. The main activity here is rambling and hiking – we’ve taken an hour-long trails to a nearby lake that offers great birding, and on another occasion a full day one that lead to several waterfalls in the reserve. Lately Canopy Tours has constructed a facility in one of the valleys, for the more adventurous visitors. Lastly, Malolotja Nature Reserve is about half-an-hour’s drive from Oshoek border post making it an ideal long weekend break.
