The People, Animal and Plant Life in Swaziland
The main beauty of Swaziland lies in its rich animal and plant life. International visitors have visited the region determined to see what the 'real' Africa really is. The Kingdom of Swaziland remains a stable and easily accessible country, rich in scenic beauty and traditional values.
The attraction of a young Monarch and a rich cultural heritage fostered each year at the annual 'Incwala' and 'Umhlanga' ceremonies acts as a natural magnet to those seeking the unspoilt, the unusual, the very spirit of old Africa.
The lions of Royal Hlane National Park have grown into magnificent creatures, both leopard and cheetah have been re-introduced making Swaziland a home for the 'Big Five' - yet another reason to visit and enjoy the animal and plant life in Swaziland.
The Kingdom of Swaziland is an independent monarchy fiercely proud of her traditions and heritage. King Mswati III is the executive head of the Swaziland people and her laws and customs are prescribed through parliament and consultation. Swaziland is a sovereign state completely independent from South Africa politically, ideologically, culturally and in practice.
Besides the abundance of animal and plant life in Swaziland, the region is home to luxury casino hotels, exceptional independent hotels, hideaway resorts, cosy family hotels, self catering chalets and camping sites, wildlife sanctuaries, reserves and parks plus a wealth of walking and climbing trails. Sporting facilities are varied including tennis, golf, squash, bowls, horse riding, swimming, fishing, rock climbing and white water rafting.
Apart from the breathtaking scenery which will overwhelm you, a variety of crafts indigenous to the Swaziland people can be seen and purchased.
