Expedition

  • Experience a very different culture

    eSwatini has managed to hold on to a laid-back Africa feeling and visitors can get a better idea of traditional African culture here than pretty much anywhere else in the region. The atmosphere is remarkably relaxed, and the country has a lively and colourful local culture, with time honoured celebrations and ceremonies still common practice.

  • Explore a new landscape

    There are many stunning treks to choose from in Eswatini. The Malotja Nature Reserve offers a true wilderness experience, trekking through rugged and beautiful terrain. Alternatively, the Mlawula Nature Reserve, nestled onto the edge of the Lubombo Mountains, has established trails with great chances to spot wildlife along the way.

  • Be part of a global community

    Taking part in community-based projects provides an incredible opportunity to work alongside local people in eSwatini, gaining an appreciation of their culture and beautiful natural surroundings. Tasks can vary from repairing community buildings to working on small scale conservation projects.

  • Learn something important

    eSwatini is home to numerous nature reserves, which offer some wonderful wilderness and wildlife experiences. Visitors can spot a vast diversity of animals, including the Big Five and bird life that is second to none, all within protected bushveld areas that incorporate wonderful indigenous plants and trees.

What to expect

  • Terrain

    eSwatini’s forests, grasslands and moderate altitude mountainous regions offer numerous options for trekking through terrain that is well off the beaten track.

  • Weather

    eSwatini has a comfortable subtropical climate year-round, with regional variations largely dependent on altitude. The best time to visit is from June to September, the coolest and driest period of the year.

  • Culture

    eSwatini is a tiny country with a big heart. One of the last executive monarchies in Africa, it celebrates and upholds its unique and ancient traditions.
