Eswatini Adventure Activities.

The Kingdom of Swaziland, which has recently reverted to its historic name of eSwatini, is a land-locked country that shares borders with South Africa and Mocambique. The country is known for its wildlife reserves, spectacular scenery and the abundance of outdoor activities. The country's king, with his 15 wives and 23 children, is also a popular topic of discussion.

Despite being only 200-kilometres long and 130-kilometres wide, eSwatini benefits from a variety of terrain as a result of altitude differences - from mountains at 1200-metres above-sea-level to the lowveld at only 250 metres of altitude. In this tiny county you can experience mountains, rain forest and typical African bush with grasslands and thorn trees.

The Great Usutu River rises in the mountains and is a focal point for activities like whitewater rafting and fishing.The country's nature and wildlife reserves offer game drives, guided bird walks as well as hiking and mountain biking routes that take in great views and interesting sights along the way.

You will never be short of activities to enjoy with abseiling, caving, quad biking, canopy tours and horse riding activities together with cultural interactions, and arts-and-crafts tours.

Swaziland's capital Mbabane is a four-hour drive from Johannesburg. There are buses and shuttles that make daily trips. Estwatini Airlink has flights between Swaziland and numerous destinations in South Africa.
