Malolotja Nature Reserve has been nominated to be the 8th wonder of the world - Read more
Malolotja Nature Reserve and Phophonyane Nature Reserve have been listed on Virtual Tourist, a Trip Adviser company, as a potential 8th Wonder of the World. They are up against attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Hells Canyon and even Hollywood! Visitors to the site are able to vote for which natural wonder they want to take the 8th place, and can even vote numerous times (once a day).
To date, 500 species of birds have been recorded in Swaziland. If one's aim is to see as many species as possible, then a visit to the eastern savanna region is a must, where as many as 100 species can be seen in a single day in Mlawula and Mbuluzi Nature Reserves and adjoining areas. By contrast, a visit to the montane grasslands at Malolotja Nature Reserve, though not as productive in terms of numbers, can be just as rewarding, as this is where the endemics occur.
