For families looking for a holiday that is something a bit different, then it can be a good idea to head to Africa, or more specifically to Swaziland. Swaziland is a country that has not yet seen the amount of tourism that can be found elsewhere in the world. Despite this however, the country is very welcoming and most tourists who visit find that they have a wonderful time.
If you are thinking about taking a safari holiday with your family, this country can provide the perfect introduction to it. A safari in this country is a very friendly experience that is also very secure, so you won’t have to worry about your safety.
The country is very small, and is around the same size as Wales. Visitors who come here will note that it has the incredibly beautiful colours that are often associated with southern Africa. The atmosphere here is very laid back and most people find it is the perfect place to come to escape from the everyday stresses of life. The temperature is temperate throughout the year and this will ensure that you can plan your safari without any risk of weather putting it off.
For those who are seeking a more authentic African holiday, then they should really head to this country, as there has been much less development here. However, there are still plenty of other activities for visitors to take part in. Hiking in the area is very popular, and will be a wonderful way to see some of the country’s beauty. If you prefer something with a bit more adrenaline, then you can hire a mountain bike and take it round some of the hills.
If you want to travel around the country faster, then hiring a car is a good option. As the country is so small, it is easy to get around in a car and see everything that it has to offer. The short distances will also be welcomed by people travelling with their family, as the children won’t have to be cooped up in the car for too long.
One of the best places to come for safari in this country is Mlilwane Wildlife Century. Here you will see a huge range of animals including wildebeests, antelope and zebra. As well as touring round in a vehicle, it is also possible to do a safari on horseback here, which can be an interesting break from the more traditional way of having a safari.
It is also possible to stay in the park and there are special huts that have been created in the traditional style of Swaziland, these are called beehive huts, and they are particularly popular among young children.
If you are interested in seeing how local life is in Swaziland, then you can visit Shewula, where families are able to see a local community at work. It is possible to visit a school here to see how education is done, and also see how spirituality differs as you will be able to visit a local healer. One thing is for certain if you visit Swaziland, you are going to be welcomed with open arms and also be able to enjoy the country’s spectacular nature, scenery and food.
