You first get a guided tour of a guide, where you have to ask for official access to join the terrain (you have to shout hello and the village shouts a greeting back). At 11:15h and 15:15h, a show is performed, singing and dancing, what an energy! There is also a waterfall nearby to watch and possibly. To Picnic.

Very impressive, especially when the dancers hurl their feet up to their heads. Afterwards there was an interesting tour of a traditional Swazi village. You can still visit a waterfall on foot. Is a path of about 15 minutes. In the restaurant you can have a small snack
Amazing journey, song, and dance. The traditional style homestead is gorgeous and fun for the whole family. The falls a long walk/short drive away is a must see. Be cautious driving, the dirt roads aren't the best and there is wildlife around.
Beautiful , just beautiful. The people here are so amazing and generous. Could not think of a better day out with the family in Swaziland
