Lush green hills drop off into wide river valleys. Mountain ranges stretch across the land as far as the eye can see. Accommodation in Swaziland has a real African feel. It’s not modern, overbearing hotel suites you’ll find here, but quaint riverside cottages and tucked away lodges. Mkhaya Game Reserve offers some of the best black rhino and white rhino viewing in Africa, and the 4×4 off-road experience will leave any adrenaline seekers satisfied.

Most nationalities may enter Swaziland without a visa for up to 30 days, and with amazing weather running throughout the whole year, you could pack your bags and head there anytime without a fuss. The summer receives a sunny and wet climate, but the cool and dry winter is the better time to go, as you will have the privilege of viewing the Umhlanga festival.
