Mlilwane Nature Sanctuary
Rolling plains and a backdrop of forests and granite mountains. Good wildlife numbers, including giraffe, zebra, hippo, warthog and antelope. The chance to explore on horseback, by bike or on foot, including to the top of Nyonyane, the abrupt ‘Execution Rock’ that rises in the park’s north. Mlilwane, Swaziland’s oldest protected area, offers up what’s great about safaris with minimal fuss – it’s a low-key destination in a truly gorgeous, varied setting. And, lest you feel too indulgent as you sip drinks near wallowing hippos, rest assured you’re visit helps – Mlilwane is also a lynchpin in Swaziland’s ongoing conservation efforts.
