Following our last game drive in the Kruger National Park, we leave the Park and journey to Swaziland. The Kingdom of Swaziland consists of a landlocked country that is bordered by Mozambique and South Africa. We make our way to our next accommodation for the following two nights, Ezulwini Valley – south of the capital of Mbabane.
The smallest country of the southern hemisphere, Swaziland is one of a mere three monarchies remaining in Africa. Though Swaziland is surrounded on all sides by South Africa, it is bordered for roughly 100 kilometres by Mozambique in the east. Its natural resources are tremendously well-managed, and in spite of the size of the country, it contains some of the finest game reserves and national parks within Southern Africa. Elephants, lions and rhinos were wiped out due to hunting at one point, but have since been restored to the region. Swaziland is also quite famous for its abundant birdlife.
