Day by Day Itinerary for Swaziland Safari and Tour

Day 1: 

We pick up at Mbabane or King Mswati III airport and transfer to Mlilwane wildlife sanctuary.
This reserve was turned into a Sanctuary, where Swaziland's rapidly vanishing wild animals could find refuge and protection.
Enjoy a nice buffet style dinner with local food followed by a traditional Swazi dance.
Overnight in the reserve.

Breakfast and dinner is included.

 

Day 2:

Ascending to Mbabane, Swaziland's capital city, the tour continues north to Malolotja Nature Reserve. Here the old Ngwenya Iron Ore Mine is a major feature. The Lion Cavern is undisputed the oldest human excavation in the world (circa. 43000BC) and although now dwarfed by the iron ore excavation, remains a fascinating insight into stone age history.

Then its time for discovering Swaziland's number one artwork attraction - Ngwenya Glass. This showroom and factory combined into one allows visitors to watch as local craftsman create works of art, such as animal sculptures and exquisite tableware.



Continuing north the tour heads towards the scenic Komati River Valley. There are superb viewing and photographic opportunities of rural Swazi community areas en route. As a final highlight, the tour passes the massive Sibebe Rock monolith - Swaziland's most famous geological feature.

Breakfast and dinner is included.

 

Day 3:

Transfer to Hlane Royal National park. Hlane Royal National Park was proclaimed as a National Park in 1967, following Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary (1961), under instruction of King Sobhuza ll. "Hlane" is the siSwati name for 'wilderness'. Hlane is an affordable lowveld destination with exciting species lists including impressive ancient hardwood habitats, big game and rich birdlife.

This 22,000 ha park, once the region’s rich hunting grounds, still boasts the largest herds of game in the Kingdom with speciality species being lion, elephant, vultures and marabou stork.

Here we will do a nice sunset gamedrive and hopefully be able to stop plenty of animals. After a nice drink watching the sunset we will head back to camp for dinner and overnight.

Breakfast and dinner is included.

 

Day 4:

Early morning wakeup will take us on a sunrise Gamedrive followed by breakfast. After breakfast, if weather permits it, you are welcome to have a Game walk. All Game Walks on Hlane are guided and conducted outside the endangered species area, along roads and game paths, or simply through the bush. 2 hours of quiet walking in nature heightens all the senses and the slow pace allows for interpretation of the signs of the wild, making the experience truly memorable. Your preference of either a Game Walk or a Birding Walk will dictate the area chosen for the walk.



Our recently introduced Mahlindza Dam Walk circumnavigates the largest and busiest water source on Hlane, amid mature trees rich with birdlife. Nice leisure time for the rest of the day will give you time to feel like you’re on holiday.

Breakfast and dinner is included.

 

Day 5:

After breakfast and checkout we return you to an agreed drop off point such as Mbabane or King Mswati Airport.
This will sadly be the end of lovely tour but you will have great memories and can always come back again in the future.

Breakfast is included
