SWAZILAND: Visiting Swaziland 2017
Sibebe Rock is the second largest freestanding rock in the world, pipped to the top by Uluru (Ayers Rock) in Australia. But Swaziland has its own thoughts o this as Ayers rock has many cracks, meaning it is not a whole piece! Not only do we think its bigger, Sibebe is nearly 2.5 billion years old too. Whilst baron-looking Ayers Rock sees over 500,000 visitors a year, Sibebe has beautifully vegetated cliffs and for the moment offers peace and solitude as you wander its trails. It even has a population of wild horses living amongst the grasslands, but don't let them drag you away!
A perfect and compact choice for adventure seekers - Swaziland offers caving, canopy tours, tubing, rafting or even climbing to the highest summit in Swaziland, Emlembe. Explore Swaziland by bike and have the opportunity to cycle alongside zebras on a mountain bike safari - you will not be lost for things to do.
Swazi crafts are hitting the catwalk! High quality arts & crafts that support local communities have become a mainstay of Swaziland. These include the likes of KhoKho, a boutique handbag company that is made by the hands of local women in Swaziland and so stylish it commands a £460 price tag. These exquisite bags have been featured in Vogue, Elle, and Condé Nast Traveller.
