Swaziland Tourism – What you can expect from Swaziland
One of the benefits of being a small country in such a huge continent is that Swaziland is able to offer you all of its scenic landscapes and unique destinations within a reasonable travel period of two hours or less by car from the central locations of Mbabane, the Ezulwini Valley and Manzini. If you want to fully appreciate all that Swaziland has to offer, it is necessary to spend more than a couple of nights so you won’t be in a hurry when you visit your planned destinations. What can you expect to experience when you get to Swaziland?
Immerse in the culture of Africa
Unlike other tourism destinations where they play cultural attractions for the benefit of the tourists, what you see in Swaziland will be the real thing. Culture is an important and central figure in the lives of Swaziland’s residents. It is the only absolute monarchy in Africa and if you want to immerse yourself in the traditions, you only have to walk the streets to see them. One of the must-see and must-experience cultural traditions in Swaziland is the Umhlanga (Reed Dance) and Incwala where thousands of Swazis participate and is really a sight to behold.
Get enthralled by the wildlife

There are a number of places that you can visit where you can choose the type of adventure that you like, from camping to roughing it or with some convenience or luxury. Dedicate some time to this type of adventure because there’s nothing like it anywhere else.
Take your breath away with the scenic landscapes
Anywhere you decide to go in Swaziland, you’ll be sure to gasp and marvel at the raw beauty of the country. Though Swaziland is landlocked which means there aren’t any oceans or seas to appreciate, the land treasures they have are enough to give you a run for your money. You can enjoy the lush mountains, the rolling green hills, waterfalls, gorges and rock formations which have been around since ancient times.
