Removed from the bigger and busier parts of the country, Ezulwini Valley represents a quiet place where visitors can relax but at the same time discover the wildlife that spreads across this region.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Lion Cavern, Mantenga Craft & Lifestyle Centre, Ngwenya Glass, and other attractions. Explore hidden gems such as Ngwenya Mine and The Mdzimba Trail. Get some historical perspective at Mantenga Cultural Village and All Saints Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Ezulwini side-trips: Mantenga Nature Reserve (in Manzini) and Sibebe Rock (in Mbabane). There's still lots to do: grab your bike and head to Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, take an in-depth tour of National Museum, take in the awesome beauty at Sheba's Breast Mountain, and try to win big at Happy Valley Casino.

For photos, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Ezulwini travel route planner.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 74°F, and evening lows to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) early enough to drive to Piggs Peak.
