About this book
Swaziland is Africa’s second smallest country and its last remaining absolute monarchy. Dwarfed by neighbouring South Africa, this tiny, landlocked nation punches well above its weight in terms of both nature and culture. Author Mike Unwin explores the excellent wildlife reserves and wild hiking trails offering waterfalls, rock art and prolific flora and birdlife, and introduces travellers to the country’s rich and varied landscapes. His personal insights, together with colourful anecdotes provide entertaining insights, give an insider’s perspective. He divides Swaziland into four distinct regions, with detailed maps and itineraries for timescales from one weekend to one month. It includes a practical guide to neighbouring attractions easily accessed from Swaziland, including Maputo (Mozambique) and the Kruger Park (South Africa), both less than one hour’s drive away. The natural history section offers far greater detail and more accurate information than found elsewhere, drawing on the author’s extensive insider knowledge and experience.
