Tourism opportunities in Swaziland

Swaziland is a small country of just over 1700 square kilometres, but it includes a great range in altitude, from about 120 m in the east to over 1860 m in the north west. It also has diverse geology and corresponding soils, and the climate varies considerably from one side of the country to the other, with annual rainfall figures varying from 500 to over 1500 mm, with much of the rain falling during the summer months.

Where is Swaziland? It is located between the Republic of South Africa and Mozambique, in south east Africa.

Swaziland's biodiversity

There are various categories of protected area in Swaziland. The Swaziland National Trust Commission is responsible for four nature reserves, proclaimed under the SNTC Act, namely Malolotja, Hawane, Mantenga and Mlawula Nature Reserves.

In addition, there are areas proclaimed under the SNTC Act, but which are privately owned and run, which include Mlilwane and Mkhaya Nature Reserves, as well as areas proclaimed under the Game Act, such as Hlane, the royal hunting ground. (These links will take you away from the SNTC site, click on your "back" button to return here.)

There are also areas run as nature reserves which are currently not proclaimed as protected areas. These include Mbuluzi, Phophonyane and Muti-muti Nature Reserves.
