  • 11 Best Places to See in Eswatini

    The Kingdom of Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, is a landlocked country between South Africa and Mozambique. Most travelers that visit Eswatini, use this small Kingdom as a shortcut to get from Hluhluwe (KwaZulu-Natal) to Kruger National Park in South Africa or vice versa. That’s totally understandable as it’s the fastest route, plus you get a glimpse of a different country and a new passport stamp.

    However, since I recently explored Eswatini on a 6-day itinerary, it’s fair to say that the Kingdom of Eswatini is surprisingly amazing and well worth it to spend more time than only passing through.
