    Default Where to holiday in Swaziland?

    Hi Gentlemen and ladies
    Can anyone assist me regarding a place to stay that could have some historic importance in Swaziland?
    Our closest point of entry would be Barberton as we stay in Nelspruit.
    Any one know of placed like old trading posts or old towns that might offer accommodation in this area?

    Go in from jossepdal and enjoy Bulembu mining town. There is accomodation and a nice museum.

    Not so much historic importance but the national parks like Hlane and Mlilwane is also very nice to visit.

    It depends on how much time you have and how far you want to travel in to Swaziland. From Bulembo you can go via Maguga dam over the dam wall to the lodge, they have a small camping area, restaurant and some nice chalets and a very nice view. Then you can go more inland and visit Malelotja game reserve with different activitys including a 4x4 trail and tree top canopy tours. Head to Ezulwini valley where you hotels, restaurants and curio shops for the wife. Then of to Mililwane game reserve with campsites, restaurant and a 4x4 trail up the mountains to executioners rock with some nice game viewing. The list goes on and as said before, depends how long and how far you want to go.

    We spent the long weekend over Easter at Hlane. If you're a nature lover, Definitely stop in there. As Hlane was our destination we didn't see too much else in the country. However there is a very nice article in the Go! Magazine. I think it was the April or May issue. See if you can pick it up. It had a fair amount of info for a sneaky trip around the beautiful country.

    I am going to Ponto Molangane shortly and was thinking of travelling through Swaziland via Barberton, staying over for a night or two in Swaziland. I have noticed the places to visit but can someone give me place names or the nicest route to follow please. I am not going camping but am looking for accommodation through Groupon.

    Sorry, I can camp if I must. By nicest route I mean most scenic route with places of interest. Road conditions doesn't really matter much.

    As Pluto has said, there are many amazing places to visit in Swaziland. Malaloja is rustic but breathtakingly beautiful and has the oldest mine in the world. Foresters Arms is another gem and so is Reilly's Rock. If you are travelling from either Nelspruit or Natal on your way to Mozambique or Kruger, Simunye Country Club & Lodge is the ideal place to stay over.

    Eish Willa... Takes long to start a new thread hey

    Dear Swazilady. Thanks for the replay. I will be having a very close look at Simunye Country Club & Lodge. I must say that it looks very nice and also a bit more upmarket. My wife and mother will be rather pleased
