Create an itinerary including Mantenga Nature Reserve
Journey into a thickly forested reserve that houses a traditional Swazi village, important natural habitats, and a picturesque waterfall at Mantenga Nature Reserve. See the authentic village, whose tribal routine and way of life have given it a reputation as a "living" cultural monument. While you're there, don't miss the "sibhaca" dance, which is performed daily. After your dose of culture, venture out to see the nearby waterfall, and admire the natural scenery that encircles it. Keep your eyes peeled for baboons, vervet monkeys, and warthogs roaming the reserve. You can also go birdwatching, with plenty of winged species to spot. Using our custom trip planner, Manzini attractions like Mantenga Nature Reserve can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Came here as part of a full day city tour. The waterfall was great and only a 15 minute walk past the village. We went here after the midday show/performance from the local villagers.

  • The falls and the reconstructed 19th century native village are promoted as the major attractions of this nature reserve. Due to the rains, the waterfalls were magnificent. The village was deserted...
