    SIDE TRIP: Swaziland

    Make the short trip from South Africa to Swaziland and visit the living museum at the Mantenga Culture Village. Learn about the history of the Swazi people, as you’re guided through a large traditional family homestead complete with kraals, authentic artefacts and live performers demonstrating maize grinding and mountain grass braiding.


    Learn the ancient Swazi way of life as your guide shares the wisdom of their language, customs, rituals, dance, music and folklore. Finish your visit off with a traditional dance performance, each act representing a different stage of life from war, to courting and marriage. The dancers’ high kicks and colourful costumes will leave you with unforgettable memories of your time in Swaziland.
