What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?
See above. Eat at Edladleni, do the waterfall hike in Malolojta, get involved with the local hiking club- they end up in amazing places. - Oct 2019
I could go on and on about this but heres just a few: Swazi Candles, Ngwenya Glass, Mvubu Falls, go to www.biggameparks.org to see all the local game parks, lots of great places to shop and go to the beach in SA and Mozambique. - Mar 2015
Game parks, from small local ones to Kruger just a couple of hours away. Lots of hiking. Seeing bushmen paintings, bird watching. Beach is 3-6 hours away. Explore Southern Africa by car! - Feb 2011
Although in a country this small you begin to run out of new things to do, regional travel is quite accessible. - May 2010
Hiking, biking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, ATVs, paragliding, white water rafting, fishing, tennis, craft markets. If you are into outdoor activities, Swaziland is the place to be. - Mar 2008
