What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Nice and clean, except for the 2 months of the year when they light the entire country on fire. - Oct 2019

It depends on the time of year. Summer is the rainy season, and the air quality is pretty good. During the dry season, the Swazi people burn EVERYTHING! At any given time you will see brush fires on the sides of mountains, in people's yards, and beside the highways. No one in my family has breathing issues, but I do see that people who have asthma or other breathing issues might have problems living here. In addition, we are at 4000 feet above sea level, so that might cause some people problems, too. - Mar 2015
