At Mahamba Gorge Lodge you can hike, mountain bike (bring your own), fish – or simply relax in comfort in a wonderfully peaceful environment. Let the friendly people who run this popular lodge share their knowledge as they guide you on the many trails in the area. You can “live the culture” through tours and traditional music, and even take traditional dancing lessons.
Then relax in seclusion and watch the sun set over the gorge, for another fairytale ending to yet another “only in Africa” day. Campsites are available, and there is secure parking. The reception area handicap-accessible.
The main town in Shiselweni is Nhlangano, meaning “meeting place”, since this was where, in 1947, Britain’s King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and the princesses Elizabeth and Margaret met King Sobhuza II to thank him for the for orts of the Swazi people during the war years.
Very ideal for people travelers that are coming from South Africa and they are willing to explore the part of Swaziland that is not commonly visited. Also very good for the travelers that want to have a place to stay just closer to the border so that the following morning they will just cross over to South Africa.
