we had a good time although I would say we learnt about the traditional customs of swazi people not about how Swazi people live today. This is a folkloric show and a tour of a family homestead that has been reconstructed for the tour. This...More

I wasn't sure whether or not visit this village in our itinerary because I was worried that it would feel extremely contrived and full of coach tours trying to squeeze Swaziland into a half day itinerary from South Africa. Luckily, I was wrong. We arrived...More
