  • Came here as part of a full day culture tour and so glad we did. Remarkable to see the traditional village life, the dance/show they provide and so much more. Total time needed about 1.5 hours.

  • The dance show was excellent. We've been to many "cultural shows" around the world over the years. They are usually lacklustre and amateurish, and designed to get money from undiscerning tourists...

  • A nature reserve within the town of Ezulwini. Walking distance from the Gables Shopping Centre. Nature Conservation, great views. Can go for picnic or eat at the restaurant.
  • Great experience seeing and learning about Eswati history and culture! Must see in any Eswatini itinerary.
