One of the last absolute monarchies in the world, landlocked Swaziland has clung to its traditions. This tiny country, the smallest in Africa. has a lot to offer, with arts and crafts and traditional markets and lifestyles on show.

Here there are several game reserves and sanctuaries. Hotels and casinos cater to tourists. There are also a number of thermal springs and the pretty countryside boasts several waterfalls.

Most Swazi people live in rural areas, and the country has an ambience of its own. Here the people are dirt poor but friendly and welcoming. The hillsides are dotted with traditional round huts capped with grass. Visit traditional villages, horse ride, raft, hike and just take life slowly in the traditional Swazi way.
