On this short tour you will have the opportunity to learn about the cultural traditions and history of the Swazi people on cultural excursions as well as enjoy the scenic wonders of the small landlocked kingdom of Swaziland.
Your tour starts and ends just outside the Kruger National Park allowing you to add a visit to South Africa’s world renowned wildlife sanctuary.
Swaziland is a small independent mountain kingdom sharing borders with South Africa and Mozambique, situated between the Kruger National Park and the province of Kwazulu Natal in South Africa. It is a charming and popular destination for its authentic tribal culture that it is more widely practiced than the countries that surround it, its scenically diverse landscapes and relaxed atmosphere. Many visitors are attracted to Swazi craft markets and cultural experiences and there are several game and nature reserves. There are also many superb hiking trails and adventure activities such as rafting, mountain biking and zip lining.
As one of the few remaining monarchies in Africa, culture and heritage are a fundamental part of life for the Swazi people. You will enjoy the stunning scenery of the mountains and valleys, forests and plains, and several game reserves across the country. In Swaziland you will find a fascinating mix of modern and traditional festivals, ceremonies and events.
You will love Swaziland as so many visitors do. The people are friendly, cheerful, and have a great sense of humour. Swaziland is a nation of Kings. During the 15th and 16th centuries Africans of Nguni descent migrated southwards from Central Africa where some of them settled in the area which is known today as Shiselweni in Southern Swaziland. Today ancient traditions and culture work hand in hand with modern technology.
