      Where to hire camping gear?

      Swaziland Jan 15, 2016 at 10:26 AM

      We will be spending a week in swaziland in March. We are looking for camping equipment to hire in Swaziland near Mlilwane or along our route from SA e.g. Vryheid or Piet Retief. The bulky stuff - things like mattresses, table, chairs, tent etc.

      We will already have a hire car but boot size can't be guaranteed and it would be great if we can just pick these up on our way.

      Any ideas very welcome!

      Road trip through Swaziland

      Swaziland Feb 11, 2014 at 2:10 AM

      I've never been to Swaziland and are planning a motorbike trip of 2 to 3 days through Swaziland. I want to travel with a scenic route and visit scenic places (mountains, valleys, river, waterfall, etc). I need advise on which route to take from west to east or a circular route (gravel roads in good condition are also suitable). I plan to enter at Piet Retief and to exit at Baberton.

    • Visa for Mozambique at Mbabane in Swaziland

      Mbabane Dec 7, 2013 at 6:20 AM

      Hi everyone,

      Since I have read about the fee hike of Mozambique visa and one of the cheapest options is to obtain here at Mbabane, I must ask the following questions once for all - for other potential travelers in the future.

      I love to hear from someone who recently applied visa at Mbabane and traveled onto Mozambique.

      My questions are as follows:
      1. Exact address of the Mozambique Embassy (Consulate or High Commission) at Mbabane, Swaziland
      2. Opening hours (I read visa application submission is like between 0900 and 1200 and collection is between 1400 and 1600?)
      3. Most interest of all, visa fee paid - please also mention your nationality :-)

      Thanks all.

      I am taking a flight from Swaziland to Johanesburg and to Singapore. This is a non-connecting flight, meaning I have to go out of immigration in South Africa, collect my luggage, check in to my next flight and go through to immigration again.

      Hi there, I plan a trip to Lesotho and Swaziland ex Johannesburg in October.
      Do you think it is possible to move between these countries by public transport? Planing to do the loop in a period of 10 - 12 days for the main sights, perhaps with backtracking to JNB if necessary.

      Swazi cultural village

      Lobamba Jun 9, 2009 at 1:59 PM

      I'll stay in South Africa next year and I'll visit Kruger national park and will use Nelspruit-airport. Due to its neighborhood to Swaziland I'm tempted to visit the country too. Do you think visiting the Swazi cultural village is a good idea? Is it possible to visit the village within only one day arriving from Nelspruit and going back to Nelspruit again? How far is the distance and how are the streets? offers a program for the village. Are there also othe possibilities (which do not last a whole day?).

There will be at most 4 people traveling in the car, one-way R245pp, round-trip R420pp. I can pick you up at your hotel and will drive you anywhere in Kruger Park or Swaziland and back. Stops will only be accommodated if all members reach a mutual concensus.
