Hiking

The SNTC Nature Reserves are well known for their excellent range of self-guided hiking trails, offering the opportunity to visitors to experience nature at a pace suited to their group. Malolotja backpacking trails rank among Southern Africa's finest as they offer not only the solace of true wilderness with magnificent rugged country, but also a fascinating variety of fauna and flora and much to interest the amateur geologist. There are approximately 200 km of highing trails and seventeen backpacking camps which allow hikers to undertake wilderness trails from two to seven days in duration. Mlawula Nature Reserve has a number of trails, ranging in duration from 1.5 hours to 2 days (all water must be carried) offering a rare opportunity for visitors to walk self-guided through the bushveld to experience the more intimate encounters with nature and wildlife. The trails in the Lubombo mountains provide excellent views across Swaziland to the west and as far as the Mozambique coast in the east. Mlawula is renowned for it's ancient caves some of which can be reached via day trails. Mantenga offers trails both along the river and up to the peaks overlooking the Ezulwini Valley.
