Getting to Swaziland was a bit of a mission from Nelspruit. We were planning to take a bus but all of them left from Johannesberg so instead of backtracking to there we decided to rent a car and drive through Swaziland on our way to St Lucia and then onto Durban.
Its a bit of a forgotten country in Africa. Bordered by Mozambique in the east and South Africa all around it it is often left off the tourist track.
Our stop there was short as we didn’t really have any high expectations for Swaziland. We drove through the beautiful countryside and then found ourselves in the capitol, Mbabane. We stopped for some lunch and since it was a Saturday it was so busy! I was just happy they accepted my South African Rand and I didn’t have to exchange it into Swaziland Rand.
Swaziland also has all of the Big 5 south of Manzini the capitol. I would have been interested to go on safari there. The park is close to the South African border as when we crossed back into South Africa again we saw giraffes and zebras just on the side of the road. You know, just in case you forgot what continent you were on.
