Create an itinerary including Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary
At Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, explore the landscape of grassland plains, native trees, wetlands, and green hills inhabited with a variety of game and wild beasts. The name of the sanctuary translates to "little fires," referring to fires caused by lightning strikes typical for the area, which then lead to the park's mission of becoming Swaziland's first conservation area. A guided nature trail takes you through the unspoiled northern section, or you can horseback ride among zebras and antelopes. Visit an authentic Swazi village for a piece of the local culture. Amenities include a swimming pool and a restaurant overlooking a picturesque pond occupied by hippos and crocodiles. Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • Lovely wildlife sanctuary with good quality dirt roads for a 2WD. No predators aside from crocodiles. Plenty of biking and hiking trails.

  • This is an excellent nature reserve for hiking as the big cats are absent and wildlife is pretty much used to peaceful visitors. Mlilwane is the oldest sanctuary in the country and has been seeing...

  • Quite a peaceful and beautiful place! The best part is that it is close to Mbabane. One of the best destinations for a weekend tiny trip.
  • Beautiful spot where you can hike on your own or take advantage of guided tours. Spend the day, or the night, and have a decent espresso at the restaurant.
