Swaziland, Traditional Hospitality

Swaziland was put on the tourism map when southern Africa’s first casino hotel was built in the lush Ezulwini Valley in the early 1990s. The Valley is a hub of Swaziland’s major tourist attractions, including the country’s famous casino, the magnificent Royal Swazi golf course and the hot mineral spring.

Mbabane is the capital of Swaziland and lies to the northern end of the Ezulwini Valley, amid the granite peaks which make up the Dlangeni hills. Like most cities, the malls and mains streets are common attractions.
