Mbabane and Mlilwane, Swaziland . . . “Sawu bona”

After a few days in Maputo, we started making our way to Swaziland. The trip can be described by the following three words: three separate combis.

It was late in the evening when we arrived in Mbabane and we didn’t see much of it as we left for a small wildlife sanctuary in Mlilwane the next morning. At Mlilwane we managed to squeeze in horse riding, mountain biking and swimming all while watching the wildlife: zebras, wildebeest, impala, a couple of wart hogs and an array of birds (much to the delight of Phil who I think is becoming a ‘bird nerd’). There are no ‘dangerous’ animals in the reserve (although I was think a wildebeest was giving me the evil eye) so you can walk, ride etc very close to the animals.
