Eswatini Mini Guide

The country is the longest established monarchy in Africa and is bordered by South Africa and Mozambique. Most of its economic activity is tied to that of South Africa including its exchange rate. Subsistence agriculture is the way of life here giving most people few opportunities to climb out of the raging poverty that sweeps the country. 

How Easy is it to get to Eswatini?
Economically tied to South Africa, it won’t be a surprise to learn that the only international flight to Eswatini is from Johannesburg. Johannesburg’s extensive connections around the world make getting to Swaziland relatively easy as long as you’re prepared to make that connection. Once in Eswatini, a hire car, preferably a 4x4 is the best way to travel around.

What Should I see or do in Eswatini?
There is little beyond the natural highlights of the country to excite the tourist but for many, that is plenty. It has a range of scenery with mountains in the west on the border with South Africa which descend to vast plains where you’ll find the safari animals you may have come in search of. There, you’ll find several game parks with the best being the Hlane Royal National Park or the Maguga Dam where the reservoir behind it attracts many animals and birds. The reserves are less crowded than those of South Africa giving you a greater chance of seeing what you’ve come for.
