Although attractions in Mbabane itself remain scarce, this capital of the Kingdom of Swaziland provides a picturesque setting, pleasant weather, and plenty of amenities for tourists exploring the nation's mountains, forests, and valleys.
Venture out of the city with trips to Swazi Candles (in Malkerns), Mantenga Cultural Village (in Manzini) and Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary (in Ezulwini). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Malolotja Nature Reserve, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Sibebe Rock, and enjoy some diversion at Royal Swazi Spa.
